Tonight’s episode of The Mindy Project, titled “An Officer and a Gynecologist,” features a guest appearance from TV vet Tim Daly (Wings, The Fugitive, Private Practice) as a cranky officer who gets even surlier after Mindy (Mindy Kaling) gives his daughter birth control pills. Since Mindy is never predictable, her handling of the matter should lead to extremely unexpected results.
It’s Mindy’s own approach to life which has garnered a loyal following to the show, and cast member Beth Grant talked about the program’s popularity. “I love the vicarious thrills of living my life through Mindy,” said Grant, who plays absent minded nurse Beverly on the show. “She has all these escapades and you know she’s a professional and she’s good at what she does. She’s a good doctor but she goes out; she has fun and she dates all these gorgeous guys and has all these adventures and she dresses fabulously and then she’s a fashion icon and she’s funny and she’s easy, you know, it’s not like she’s hitting it hard. It’s just easy and sweet and kind and I think we all kind of want to be her. I know I do.”
The Mindy Project fans are also tune in to check in on the relationship between, as well as the back and forth banter, of Mindy and Danny (Chris Messina). In a recent interview, Kaling humorously offered up her thoughts on kissing her co-star. “It’s one of the perks of the job,” she added. “It’s like you kiss like you would kiss. You know, it’s like, fun. Yeah, that’s Chris. It’s like I know him so well and feel so close with him and vice versa, so, we just do it.”
The Mindy Project airs tonight on FOX (9 pm et/pt).
