1 hour ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Even funny girls deserve to feel like a million bucks. And Mindy Kaling certainly looked the part at the 2016 Met Gala, wearing an angelic, strapless dress paired with slick-straight hair. How did the actress get ready for the big night? At Tory Burch's NYC apartment, with her Met Ball squad, consisting of Freida Pinto, Emma Roberts and the designer, of course. Oh, to be fly on that wall…or Marc Mena. The celeb hairstylist shared what it took to doll up "one of the funniest people [he] knows!" "We've been planning with sketches of the dress and fabrics for a few weeks now," said the hair pro. "This look has been a real collaborative effort between Mindy, Tory, »

Are Mindy Project's Dr. L and Jody Becoming a Thing?! Star, Ep Weigh In

25 April 2016 2:42 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you picked up on an interesting new vibe between Mindy and Jody during that stroll home from Colette’s party at the end of last week’s The Mindy Project, you might be left with the same question we were: Are Dr. L and Dr. K the new Mindy-Danny?

We asked series creator and star Mindy Kaling about the possibility of a budding attraction, a theme that continues in this week’s installment (available Tuesday on Hulu). Her answer? Comedically cagey.

Garret Dillahunt is so much taller than me that when I act with him, it hurts my neck. »

Warning: This post contains spoilers for The Mindy Project‘s midseason premiere. 

Summon your inner Beyoncé Pad Thai, because you’re going to need her to handle the emotional fallout from The Mindy Project‘s midseason premiere.

The episode, which became available on Hulu Tuesday, saw Drs. Lahiri and Castellano going to couples’ counseling, postponing their wedding multiple times, then eventually canceling the nuptials and breaking up for good. The main cause?

Mindy Kaling on the Future of The Mindy Project and a Message for Worried Fans

12 April 2016 9:51 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

What's next for The Mindy Project? "Romantic comedies never have sequels," Matt Warburton, executive producer and writer on the series, told E! News at NBCUniversal's Summer Press Day. "But maybe our show is like a sequel to a romantic comedy, where the story keeps going." "The one really fun thing about my show, as someone who loves the genre of romantic comedies, is there are so many challenges once you get together with someone who is very different, which is what you see in a lot of movies," Mindy Kaling, the creator and star of The Mindy Project, told us. "But there's also so much comedy to explore and since nobody does it, it's really a fertile area." So part two »

How 'The Mindy Project' Forgot About Mindy

9 April 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When "The Mindy Project" took a knee for its winter hiatus, Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (Chris Messina) were in a bad place. As Mindy's career aspirations collided with Danny's immediate desire to breed, their knotty dynamic finally curdled when Mindy slipped out of her and Danny's bed, back to her old apartment. While Mindy and Danny were on the verge of maybe splitting up, viewers were - perversely - on the verge of relief. With "The Mindy Project" about to return for the back half of its fourth season, it's worth asking how one of TV's most shippable couples got here, begging for a breakup. Because while the series wants to honestly confront the challenges of long-term coupledom, something more disturbing is making its way onscreen. Mindy Kaling herself locates Mindy and Danny's problems in the inherent dynamic of two dissimilar, strong-willed people. Their very appeal is that they shouldn't work well together, »

Mindy Kaling and Stephen Colbert Call Out Each Other's "Unprofessional" Behavior on The Mindy Project Set

Mindy Kaling got down to business on The Late Show Thursday. Stephen Colbert told her he had "the most fun" ever when he guest-starred on her Hulu series, but The Mindy Project actress sipped her tea—literally and figuratively. "I'm glad you had fun. I'm glad you brought it up, because I wasn't going to," she told him. "I'm very fond of you, Ok? I did not think you were very professional when you came on my show." Colbert, who had just wrapped The Colbert Report, said, "I was between gigs. I was just footloose and fancy free!" Colbert played Father Michael O'Donnell in "Confessions of a Catho-holic." Kaling's character pretended to be Catholic in »

You're Doing It Wrong: It's How You Use Coconut Oil That Matters Most

5 April 2016 5:37 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We get it. We get it—coconut oil for the win! There's no doubting the benefits of the ingredient...or denying its celeb fans. Gwyneth Paltrow uses it to clean her teeth. Mindy Kaling uses it for shiny hair, according to People. Kourtney Kardashian has even touted its metabolism-boosting, weight-loss-assisting, skin-preserving properties on her blog. The beauty industry and certainly the world at large are obsessed. But can you be using coconut oil the wrong way? Here's what you need to know. As a Face Moisturizer: Everyone's skin is different, but a good rule of thumb is to apply your beauty products in order from lightest to heaviest consistency; coconut oil has a medium consistency. »

'The Mindy Project' Season 4 Trailer Is Missing Someone Important

5 April 2016 2:10 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Hulu has released a new trailer for season four of "The Mindy Project," which returns from its long winter hiatus next week, and while the clip is full of comedic gags and lots of the familiar faces we know and love, there's one major player that's almost entirely absent.

Bust out the bear claws. #MindyOnHulu is back with all-new episodes April 12, only on @Hulu.https://t.co/PeLVftevlo

The Mindy Project (@TheMindyProject) April 5, 2016

Only one short shot of Danny (Chris Messina) is featured in the entire promo, a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance -- and we initially did miss it -- that only fuels speculation that he and Mindy (Mindy Kaling) are definitely on the outs. Also missing: Mindy's engagement ring. Several shots prominently feature Dr. Larihi's hands, and her left ring finger is noticeably empty.

Those clues confirm that things between the couple have deteriorated after the events of the midseason finale, »

Ken Howard, the president of SAG-aftra and a veteran character actor in TV and film, has died. He was 71.

Howard was an Emmy and Tony winner who was highly regarded by those in the entertainment community, winning election to become president of the national chapter of the Screen Actors Guild in 2009.
