What 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!
