New York Magazine has a fun story about The Office’s Mindy Kaling and her love of romantic comedies, including her favorite romcom, Nora Ephron’s ‘You’ve Got Mail.’
Toward the bottom of page 1, Mindy talks about her future with The Office:
[Mindy’s] Office contract is up this year, at the same time as Steve Carell’s. “This isn’t some big scoop or anything, but I can see this season being my last. Right now, I’m hankering for new adventures…”
Lead singer and director Mindy Kaling tells us there are “pretty ambitious” plans for the group: “There’ll be two songs and two music videos, and the whole cast [including Ellie Kemper, Ed Helms and B.J. Novak] is coming back.” Kaling will direct both videos, as well as the webisodes accompanying the songs. So will the new tracks be dance-oriented like “Prima Donna,” or can we look forward to a slow jam? “The writers tried to cover so many different genres [with the songs] because we do it so infrequently,” Kaling explains, promising that at least one video will have elements of time travel.
