18 September 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Warning: This clip is real cute. We know you clicked on it expecting cuteness, but it's cuter. Apparently, while shooting The Nest, Maya Rudolph, Amy Poehler, Rachel Dratch, and Tina Fey had a playdate for all their kids. Towards the end of the clip, Fey talks about how easy it is to tell which kid belongs to which actress, and it will destroy you. Okay, we have sufficiently warned you. Bye, forever. »

Mindy Kaling Tells How She Lost a Role in 'Bridesmaids'

15 September 2014 6:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cue the Wilson Phillips track, because Mindy Kaling apparently needed the strength to hold on after not landing a role in "Bridesmaids." Shocking? Maybe. If anything, "Bridesmaids" was a triumph of perfect casting, so I can't fault the producers for not choosing Mindy Kaling in the hit comedy. Still, it's fun to wonder how the movie would've been different with her in Maya Rudolph's role. Here she explains her disappointment to Andy Cohen and Meredith Vieira on the always poppin' "Watch What Happens Live!" »

Mindy Kaling Reveals She Lost Bridesmaids Role to Maya Rudolph as Kristen Wiig Ends Sequel Rumors

15 September 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Mindy Kaling has a pretty full schedule writing and starring in Fox's hit comedy The Mindy Project, which returns for a third season Tuesday. But does her TV workload keep her from pursuing other movie roles? "No one ever calls me in to audition for things because I'm so specific," Kaling, 35, admitted on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live Sunday. Kaling did, however, reveal that she was in the running to have a role in Bridesmaids, "which was a movie I loved. It was for Maya Rudolph's part. I practiced it so much and was so into it and I loved that whole cast." The actress added, "That was one that was a heartbreaker." Kaling joked that she's been offered "a lot of »

The comedian recently took to the Internet to express his disappointment about the lack of diversity among the talent as several late-night shows are getting (or have already gotten) new hosts. "Every time a late-night job becomes available, people on social media and websites like this one get to play Fantasy TV Exec!" he wrote in an essay titled "The Unbearable Whiteness of Late Night" on BuzzFeed.
