Mindy Kaling talks Steve Carell, Will Ferrell, and Charlie Sheen

Posted on

ELTON JOHN FURNISHWhat do you guys think it would take to get Mindy Kaling to be my best friend? The Office multi-hyphenate — writer/director/actress/Twitter goddess — stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman to chat about Steve Carell’s last days on set (“I was like, he’s not dying. He’s going to go be a movie star”), fighting not to break while acting opposite Will Ferrell (“I would have to think about sad things so I wouldn’t laugh”), and how Charlie Sheen is actually a brilliant wordsmith (“He’s taking time to articulate what a hideous troll you are. I mean, where does the language come from? He has like, a thesaurus”). As always, every little thing she says is magic — and she looks smokin’ hot to boot. Even Dave had to compliment her on her spangly mini-dress.

Watch clips from the interview below, then take to the comments to discuss how badly you want to shoot the breeze with Mindy over a glass of wine or four. I’m free whenever you are, M!
