Mindy Kaling’s Interview with ‘Parade’ Will Make You Laugh, Cry

19 Mar

If the excerpt from Mindy Kaling‘s new interview with Parade magazine is any indication, you’ll be blaming imaginary onions by the time you’re done reading the whole thing.

In a preview, released by the publication earlier this week, Kaling gets candid about being the boss of The Mindy Project and the bittersweet day the series got the green light from FOX.

“It was like a gift from God or my mom,” the 34-year-old tells Parade of losing her mother to pancreatic cancer on the same day the show got picked up.

“I think she was giving me something so I didn’t have to get crushed under the weight of my grief.”

Kaling also opens up about what it’s really like calling the shots on a TV show.

“I love being the boss, but it’s lonelier because you know that everyone at some point has huge complaints about you,” she says. “And I like to be part of the gang, you know?”

The Mindy Project recently kicked off its second season.

Mindy Project James Franco

Who’s the cutest TV doctor of them all? Well, James Franco is giving everyone’s favorite OB/GYN, Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling) a run for her money in a new promo for The Mindy Project‘s second season.

Franco guest stars as Dr. Paul Leotard (best fictional MD name ever), a physician and former model who fills in for Kaling’s character while she is in Haiti.

The Twitter-friendly Mindy cast already shared some some sneak peek snaps of Franco on set, but now’s our chance to see the renaissance man in action.

As usual, the 127 Hours star has been busy with a variety of all-over-the-map projects. Last week James announced his upcoming Ovation art-centic TV series, James Franco Presents, and his Comedy Central Roast is set to air on Labor Day.

Take a look at his turn as a charming gynecologist, above. The Mindy Project returns to FOX Tuesday, September 17.
