Mindy Kaling, Chris Messina

After nearly two seasons of repressed feelings and sexual tension, The Mindy Project's midseason finale shocked viewers when Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (Chris Messina) shared a passionate kiss on a flight en route back to New York.

"I thought that some people might dig it or some people might not dig it ... but I was definitely kind of shocked that people had such a visceral experience with it," Messina tells TVGuide.com.

Question: What do you think the chance is for The Mindy Project to be renewed for a third season? I have been watching it since the beginning and think that the end of "The Desert" episode gave the show some good material and direction for the rest of the season. It has become so funny, and the chemistry between Mindy Kaling and Chris Messina is great. I would hate for this show to not get a chance to show what it can do. I'm not sure how long a show has to be on the air to be syndicated, but I think that would help the ratings, too. — Meg

Mindy Kaling's Elle Magazine Cover Sparks Controversy

Mindy Kaling for Elle Magazine

Elle Magazine is facing backlash in the wake of its Women in TV issue, with some critics saying the publication intentionally highlighted only Mindy Kaling's face on the cover because she isn't as thin as some of the other honorees.

Gracing the other Women in TV covers are Amy PoehlerZooey Deschanel and Allison Williams, all of whom are shown in nearly full-body color shots. Kaling's picture, however, is cropped from the chest up and is in black-and-white. Check out all the covers here.

25 Reasons Why I'm Madly in Love with The Mindy Project's Danny Castellano

Chris Messina, Mindy Kaling

Early on in my viewing of The Mindy Project (Tuesdays, 9:30/8:30c, Fox), I took a hard stance against the seemingly inevitable Danny (Chris Messina) and Mindy (Mindy Kaling) pairing. In fact, I wrote a whole story about why these polar opposite colleagues-turned-friends should never take their relationship to the next level. At the time, I said it was because so many of Mindy's other love interests were just as endearing and more believable. (Brendan gave her that star for her birthday! If Pastor Casey really makes it as an event planner, they can still make it work!) But the real confession might just be a much more selfish one: that I want Dr. Danny Castellano all for myself. Sure, he's attractive and has a good job but my love for the (sadly) fictional but wonderful leading man runs much deeper. Here are 25 reasons why Dr. D is the guy for me... read more

How Mindy Project's Mindy Kaling Celebrates the Strength of Weak Female Characters

Mindy Kaling

Strong female characters are rarely allowed to be nuanced on TV. They don't get to be brilliant, vain or funny. They get to be strong (and maybe sexy, if they're lucky). They kick a--, overcome obstacles and rarely display any signs of feminine vulnerability. Often times, their strength is framed as the result of some "issue," (SVU's Olivia Benson troubled childhood, Sonya Cross' Asperger's on The Bridge), as though the women are only strong because a catalyst forced them to be this way.

But Mindy Lahiri doesn't have issues (well, she has issues, but not in that sense). She's a strong, well-developed comedic antihero on par with  Michael Scott. But many Mindy Project viewers didn't warm to Mindy as quickly as they took to the equally offensive Office boss. "I think that [Mindy] is very resilient and very confident and until you see her display kindness or show rapport with other people, it's hard for an audience just to decide they love her," Mindy Kaling tells TVGuide.com, recalling the initial reaction to the character.
