Mindy Kaling: You guys know Idris Elba is guest starring this spring?
tanster: of course!
tanster: ‘new boss’
Mindy Kaling: Gorgeous, complicated, Stringer Bell from The Wire
limonada: Stringer Bell! I can’t wait to see how Michael and him interact
Mindy Kaling: Jen and I couldn’t breathe when we first met him at catering last week
limonada: Hot tamale!
Kate: he is a looker!
Mindy Kaling: He’s English and he’s a DJ and he’s 6’1″ and has a ridiculous body
tanster: kelly hooks up with stringer?!
Mindy Kaling: Anyway, so yes, Idris Elba causes a stir among some of the office ladies
Mindy Kaling: I also think there would be funny Andy-Kelly interactions
Amee: Oh, dear.
Mindy Kaling: Ed and I kind of realized we’ve almost never stood next to each other on set before
anonymoose: excellent! we don’t see enough of them
limonada: You guys should sing together
Mindy Kaling: Wasn’t Ed so great in the Julia story in LC?
Mindy Kaling: Him singing 1-2-3-4 is one of my favorite Andy moments ever
Kenna: Ed is always great :D
Mindy Kaling: Such a dork.
MNFan: I love that guy!
asianman696: i loved when he sang feist
Skillet86: haha that was priceless
Cal: Didn’t you guys share a scene in “local ad”?
Mindy Kaling: Did we? Did we sing together? Maybe we did.
Kenna: Yep – you did!
ChillisBannedMe: I realize I’m late in… but thanks for stopping by! Ultimately who would you like Kelly to end up with?
Mindy Kaling: BJ and I were joking today that, at this point, it might be believable that we just come back one episode and Ryan and Kelly got married
aklarkin: That would be awesome!
Teheheman: Can we say Vegas?
tanster: that would be perfectly believable
tanster: and hilarious
Mindy Kaling: I could also see her marry an Indian guy her parents knew tho as well.
aklarkin: Oh yeah, Ryan wouldn’t want a flashy wedding.
Cal: Hah– I was just going to ask if a Ryan-Kelly marriage was going to happen. That could make one interesting season finale.
asianman696: i hope michael is the ring bearer
Mindy Kaling: Wouldn’t it be so mean to be tease it in a promo “The Office wedding you’ve been hoping for…”
Mindy Kaling: And then it’s me and BJ kissing at some church
tanster: that’s exactly how nbc would promote it lol
aklarkin: I can see everyone thinking it’s going to be the Jim/Pam wedding then BAM! Kelly and Ryan!
ChillisBannedMe: I think we’d all still freak out…… but on a different level
asianman696: that’s a genius idea
limonada: Since you are one of the two women on the writing staff (woot! woot!) do you have a lot of input on Pam?
Mindy Kaling: It’s funny you should mention that
Mindy Kaling: Today we are working on BJ’s next script, which has a great Pam scene that is kind of serious and nuanced.
Mindy Kaling: BJ asked for me specifically to be in the room with him and Jen (with our large staff we break up into smaller groups)
cristin: I love serious Pam.
jennifer1111: What are your feelings about Pam?
Mindy Kaling: And after about ten minutes, he got so fed up with my ideas, he was like “Yeah, maybe you should join another room.” as nicely as he could
Mindy Kaling: So, today I’m not so good at writing for Pam!
Mindy Kaling: :whistle
limonada: So, did you leave?
Mindy Kaling: that’s me whistling guiltily
Mindy Kaling: I left, and did 15 minutes of online shopping before joining Lee and Justin’s room
The Fire Gal: Aww. Well Pam’s tricky… this Fancy New Beesley has everyone slightly confused!
Mindy Kaling: I love Pam. Pam is totally tricky, FNB. You’re right.
Denise (ddker): buy anything good?
Kate: Love it! What’s your favorite for spring 09?
Mindy Kaling: Oh, I’m psyched someone asked me about clothes (I’ll get back to Pam in a second, I promise!)
Mindy Kaling: Charlotte Ronson has a GREAT spring line
Kate: Love her!
