With those season one growing pains barely a dot in the rearview mirror, The Mindy Project has leapt from strength-to-strength in 2013 as the show found its voice, the perfect cast permutation and a beyond-loyal fanbase that hangs on every glob. The recently-launched second season continued the show's winning streak, culminating in last week's hilarious and heartbreaking episode, Music Festival, where Mindy and Pastor Casey called it quits.
In tonight's all-new episode, Mindy moves on with a shocking suitor: Morgan! But as is to be expected, it's not as simple or straight-forward as that according to Ike Barinholtz, who redefines what it means to be a "scene-stealer." ETonline caught up with The Mindy Project writer and co-star to talk about tonight's episode, titled Magic Morgan, learn who the lovable nurse's heart actually belongs to and find out what he's excited for fans to see in the coming weeks!
ETonline: First of all, I should probably offer you congratulations since last week's episode ended with Morgan and Danny getting engaged!
Ike Barinholtz: Thank you! [laughs] Once DOMA was struck down, we knew we'd be able to do what we wanted. That was such a fun episode. I thought the proposal bit was so funny; [Chris] Messina was just hilarious. Morgan is just trying to do right by his friend. He doesn't just wear his heart on his sleeve, he wears his brain on his sleeve.
