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

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!

    I love Mindy’s tweets, and Kelly Kapoor is one of my favorite characters. I would totally go shoe shopping with Mindy any time.

    I would totally be her BFF. She’s the best twitter-er(?)!


    Yes Charlie Sheen Is WINNING and has always like his father and brother been slightly above average intelligence which is why he is such a wordsmith. And Hey as an actor you need to be able to be spontanious in your acting with funny catchlines like WINNING AND TROLLS

    I don’t really watch The Office that much. But I admire her because she’s not only a successful woman in a male-dominated industry but she is also of South Asian descent. Rock on, Mindy Kaling!

    Thanks, Hillary. This article is exactly what we discussed it should be.

    Also, please tell your colleagues to print another article about how wonderful James Franco was at hosting the Oscars. I’m concerned that meme hasn’t “stuck” yet.

    Your check is on its way!
