The Mindy Project’s Ike Barinholtz’s Slim-Down Secret? ‘I Stopped Drinking Beer’
Fans of The Mindy Project may have noticed that nurse Morgan Tookers has been looking slimmer in his scrubs.
“I lost a couple ounces, yeah,” Ike Barinholtz told PEOPLE while promoting the show. “I did this movie [The Nest] with Tina [Fey] and Amy [Poehler] last summer, and I had to lose weight for it. I was real big, and the part was kind of a romantic part, and the director – in the NICEST way – was like, ‘This is a character who recently lost some weight.’ Draw your own conclusion.”
As for how he dropped the pounds, Barinholtz, 37, admitted he had to give up on a couple of his favorite indulgences.
“I stopped drinking beer, which I love,” said the actor. “And then cheese popcorn was a big thing for me. I would go to Whole Foods and get one of those bags of cheese popcorn and eat the whole thing right away. So basically it was just, for the first time in my life, trying to eat reasonably.”
Mindy Kaling To Appear In Super Bowl Commercial With Matt Damon
Will Mindy and Matt become TV’s next “it” couple?
We’ll have to watch what happens during next year’s Super Bowl to find out, as London’s Daily Mail is reporting that the erstwhile Jason Bourne was spotted in L.A. getting cozy with theMindy Project star while the two filmed a Super Bowl commercial.
According to The Mail, Mindy and Matt “were spotted in an intimate embrace,” with Mindy — dolled up in a chic floral dress and green houndstooth coat — caressing the actor’s face while filming on Saturday.
Although it’s still unknown exactly what they were shooting, The Mail reports that Matt and Mindy “had no trouble getting into character for the romantic scene” shot for the upcoming commercial.
Mindy Kaling On Why ‘The Mindy Project’ Is Unconsciously Feminist
Mindy Kaling is the creator, star and a writer of “The Mindy Project,” a rom-com sitcom currently in its third season. As she so eloquently put it in March: “I’m a f**king Indian woman who has her own f**king network television show.”
Now Kaling can add being named one of Glamour’s 2014 women of the year to her already lengthy (and impressive) resumé. Kaling spoke with Glamour’s Megan Angelo about how her feminist values spill over into her show’s storylines and her hiring practices.
For Kaling, feminism is a given — because that’s who she is. “I am a feminist. So if that leaks into every episode of the show, I (a) like it and (b) don’t do it on a conscious level,” said Kaling. “That’s just our standpoint.”
The star also addressed the way she hires her writing staff, noting that she makes it a top priority to have a diverse group of writers contributing to her show’s scripts. “It’s my responsibility to try to encourage groups that don’t get represented,” she told Angelo. “I can’t just hire willy-nilly. It’s important for me to have our eight female writers because my show is about women.”

Mindy Kaling on the Mid-Season Finale and What’s Next for The Mindy Project
The Mindy Project wrapped its run for 2014 last night with what’s become a now-signature holiday-party episode in which Big Things Happen. Last night’s twist (spoiler alert) was that instead of Mindy getting engaged — as the show’s writers had hinted might be in the offering — she landed a plum medical fellowship at Stanford. (Read our recap of the episode here.) The good news: Rather than threaten Mindy and Danny’s relationship, the episode only underscored just how solid the two are (at least for now). The even better news: Fox last month announced it was expanding Mindy’s third season from 15 episodes to a nearly standard 21-episode order, a sign the network is still committed to the show despite its modest ratings. Vulture caught up with creator/star Mindy Kaling this week via email to discuss last night’s episode, what’s next for Mindy and Danny, and whether or not she’s onboard with our plan to create a Mindy spinoff starring Danny’s mom (Rhea Perlman).
Another emotional Christmas episode on The Mindy Project! It looked like Mindy was going to have her heart broken again this year, as in season one, but things worked out. She and Danny are still in a great place, and Mindy has taken a big step forward in her professional life. Was there any debate about how things would turn out?
We had a lot of discussions about gestures in this episode. Danny is usually the one to do them, to come in and save the day. We wanted Mindy to make a thoughtful gesture to him because we don’t see that as much. That’s how we came up with the Ken Burns–style documentary. Then Charlie [Grandy] wrote an incredibly funny script.
