Mindy Kaling Talks The Mindy Project And Her 2nd Book

Mindy Kaling confirmed during 'The Mindy Project' PaleyFest 2013 panel in Beverly Hills that she will be spending her down time between seasons writing her new book. It’ll be the second book for the former regular on The Office and current creator/exec producer/star of The Mindy Project, which earned an early second season renewal last week.

Mindy also revealed that the untitled book would find her looking at “the high highs and low lows of the past 18 months” and would come out “in like a year and a half.” Her first book, titled Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns), was published in November 2011. And she said early in the evening that she will be returning to shoot The Office series finale.

Fans also learned that actress Chloe Sevigny will be appearing in a three-episode guest part later this season portraying a travel photographer who is the ex-wife of Chris Messina’s character Danny Castellano. “She’s got a huge hold on Danny and broke his heart,” Mindy explained. And when asked which actor would top her wish list of guest stars to land, she named Eastbound And Down star Danny McBride. She’d like to cast him as a giant, foul-mouthed, disgusting gay man. But that will need to wait until Season 2, if at all.

Mindy gave a hint to where things may be headed when she acknowledged that, at 33, she’s starting to think about “having kids and getting married and stuff. I’d like to see that reflected in the show.”
