According to TVInsider, which broke the news, Nayyar will play Sendhil, a successful hedge fund manager that Mindy’s parents (the recently cast Ajay Mehta and Sakina Jaffrey) think would make an ideal spouse for their daughter. (Methinks Danny will have something to say about that.)

There is joy and wonder in this marvelous mounting of a human mind, and a thrilling audacity in how it dares at such a strange and impossible thing. I’m “biast” (pro): mostly love Pixar’s films
I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have some misgivings about this Inside Out movie. Only five emotions in a little girl’s head? Only Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust, and Sadness? Maybe things will get more complicated when she’s an older girl… but even the grownups here have only those five emotions. I dunno about that. Cuz in my not-little-girl head right now, Doubt is telling me “There’s no way you can do justice to this movie, so don’t even bother trying,” and Procrastination is agreeing, saying, “See? It was right to put off writing this review. Let’s put it off some more, »

It’s very difficult not to love This Is The End, Neighbors (aka Bad Neighbours) and even last year’s The Interview to some degree, and from the people that brought you those three movies comes holiday flick The Night Before.
The Christmas comedy stars Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon Levitt and Anthony Mackie and is directed by Rogen and Levitt’s 50/50 helmer Jonathan Levine. I love the look of this and it has been years since we’ve had a great festive comedy. There’s some great support in this film from the likes of Mindy Kaling, Lizzy Kaplan, Jillian Bell and even Kanye West.
Here’s the synopsis:
From Jonathan Levine, the acclaimed director of 50/50, comes the new comedy The Night Before. Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Seth Rogen) and Chris (Anthony Mackie) have been friends since childhood, »

The first, red-band trailer for The Night Before dropped on Tuesday, which offered a look at the new comedy from 50/50 director Jonathan Levine alongside Rogen and Gordon-Levitt. The film also stars Anthony Mackie, Jillian Bell, Lizzy Caplan, and Mindy Kaling.
The Night Before follows Ethan (Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Rogen) and Chris (Mackie) who have been friends since childhood, and for a decade, their yearly Christmas Eve reunion has been an annual night of debauchery and hilarity. Now that they’re entering adulthood, the tradition is coming to an end, and to make it as memorable as possible, they set out to find the Nutcracka Ball – the Holy Grail of Christmas parties.

Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Seth Rogen) and Chris (Anthony Mackie) have been friends since childhood, and for a decade, their yearly Christmas Eve reunion has been an annual night of debauchery and hilarity.
Now that they’re entering adulthood, the tradition is coming to an end, and to make it as memorable as possible, they set out to find the Nutcracka Ball – the Holy Grail of Christmas parties.
The two funniest moments from the trailer without a doubt: re-enacting the scene from Big and the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo from Miley Cyrus singing “Wrecking Ball.” Hilarious stuff!

Christmas 2015 is already looking holly and jolly—courtesy of Seth Rogen! The first trailer for the 33-year-old funnyman's upcoming comedy The Night Before debuted today, and the clip, which also features castmembers Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anthony Mackie, Lizzy Caplan, Jillian Bell, Michael Shannon and Mindy Kaling does not disappoint (video contains language that may be offensive to some). The film centers on three bros, Rogen, Gordon-Levitt and Mackie, who have been friends since childhood and have spent the past 10 years enjoying a night of debauchery during their annual Christmas Eve reunion. But now that the longtime friends are entering adulthood (Rogen's wife is »
During what might be the hottest day of the summer, it seems weird to sit here and right about a Christmas movie. Don’t get us wrong, we love Christmas movies, but we’re not quite done with summer blockbuster season yet.
But for a Christmas movie starring Seth Rogen, Anthony Mackie and Joseph Gordon Levitt, we will gladly celebrate Christmas in July. The Night Before follows three best friends who are on a quest to find the ultimate Christmas party in New York before their adult lives prevent them from living it up anymore.
Written in part by Evan Goldberg (Seth Rogen’s filmmaking partner responsible for the likes of The Interview and This is the End), we’re expecting The Night Before to feature as many outrageous moments and wild celeb cameos as the rest of Seth Rogen’s comedies. Lizzy Caplan, Jillian Bell, and Mindy Kaling also star. »

The film, which opens Nov. 25, centers on three longtime friends deciding to party one last time on Christmas Eve to mark the conclusion of their 14-year-old holiday tradition — started due to the death of the mother of Gordon-Leveitt’s character — since Rogen’s character is about to become a father and Mackie’s pro-athlete character is too famous.
Comic chaos ensues when Rogen’s wife, played by Jillian Bell, decides to give her husband magic mushrooms and cocaine. That leads to him barfing in a church while wearing a Star of David sweater and then declaring to the congregation, “We did not kill Jesus!”

Caplan teamed up with Rogen for last year's controversial Christmas release The Interview, a comedy which caused an international incident with its depiction of the assassination of Kim Jong-un.
Around the holiday season last year, Seth Rogen was fighting off controversy on a few fronts thanks to "The Interview," but he's back with a project this year which shouldn't raise anyone's ire. Along with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, he's reteamed with "50/50" director Jonathan Levine for "The Night Before," has pulled in Anthony Mackie for good measure, and the first trailer is here.

However, their lives have all become busier, so they're going to go out in style with one last celebration.

Just a few hours ago, the title for Jonathan Levine’s Christmas comedy reteam with his 50/50 stars Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt was revealed as The Night Before, and now the red band trailer for the film has made its way online.
The film centers on three childhood friends, Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Seth Rogen), and Chris (Anthony Mackie) who aim to cap off a long-running tradition of making Christmas Eve a night of sheer debauchery before accepting their new responsibilities as adults. In an effort to create a night to remember, they set out to find the notorious Nutcracka Ball.
The first trailer for the pic is an absolute riot, as we knew it would be, complete with a shockingly good rendition of Kanye West’s “Runaway,” manchildren running wild and lots of drug-fueld shenanigans. This is certainly more of a raunchy comedy than 50/50, which surprised as a bittersweet »

Leave it to Seth Rogen to celebrate Christmas by tripping too hard on mushrooms, barfing in church and running out of midnight mass — in his Star of David sweater — yelling "We did not kill Jesus!" It's the capstone moment in the gonzo redband trailer for The Night Before, available exclusively on Rolling Stone. (You can check out the film's Facebook here and Twitter here.)
Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s anticipated reteam with 50/50 director Jonathan Levine has been alternately referred to as “Untitled Xmas Comedy,” “Xmas” and “Untitled Christmas Comedy” over the past year, but the project’s actual title has finally been revealed: The Night Before.
Rogen and Gordon-Levitt, who played a goofball and his cancer-stricken best friend for Levine in what was one of the finest dramatic comedies in many years, are toplining the Christmas season comedy alongside Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘s Anthony Mackie. All three play childhood best friends who reunite for one last night of debauchery on Christmas Eve before they admit they’ve aged out of their wild-partying habits. Aiming to make this the most memorable evening of their lives, the trio scour the city for the Nutcracka Ball – that most notorious of Christmas ragers.
All things considered, this is a far more mainstream venture than the »

Just when you thought you'd gotten Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball" out of your head comes the red band trailer for "The Night Before," which uses the song to soundtrack all the mayhem that meets Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Anthony Mackie on the titular evening before Christmas.
It's a fitting juxtaposition, since Rogen in particular comes in like a wrecking ball and basically destroys the holiday, thanks to a combination of drugs, booze, and an epic party that he and his buddies are desperate to attend. "The Night Before" follows lifelong friends Ethan (Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Rogen), and Chris (Mackie), who have enjoyed an annual night of debauchery for years, but are ending the tradition because everyone is growing up -- for the most part, anyway.
They decide to have one last hurrah, and naturally, things don't exactly go according to plan, mostly thanks to Isaac experiencing an insanely bad trip. »

It's finally time to meet the parents on The Mindy Project. E! News has learned exclusively that House of Cards star Sakina Jaffrey and Royal Pains' Ajay Mehta have been cast as Mindy Kaling's TV parents. In the season three finale, Danny (Chris Messina) embarked on a journey to meet Mindy's (Kaling) parents once and for all, with the last scene showing him at the door. Then Fox canceled the show (dark days), but Hulu rescued it (here comes the sun!). And now here we are, with Mindy's parents finally coming to The Mindy Project. Jaffrey's other TV credits include Sleepy Hollow, Third Watch, Madam Secretary and Girls. On the big screen she had roles in Definitely, Maybe, The Indian in the »

It looks like Pixar has another hit on its hands, as Inside Out broke records in its opening weekend.
The 3D animation took a staggering $91.1m, making it Hollywood's biggest debut by an original film in history.
Inside Out review: Pixar's charming take on childhood
The film follows 11-year-old Riley and her emotions - Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust and Anger - and looks at how she deals with them when her parents announce they are moving across the country to San Francisco.
What is The Pixar Theory and how does Inside Out fit into it?
Up until this weekend, the first original movie to make the top domestic opening weekends of all time list was 2009's Avatar at number 64.

Inside Out, Pixar’s new film, offers a helpful insight – and reveals the unexpected pressure to be ‘happy’
Like Yves Klein’s deep, uncomfortable blue, Pixar should patent the particular happysadness you feel when you emerge from seeing its films. The teary wonder at nature and humanity that comes from watching anthropomorphised lamps fall in love and causes one to skip from the cinema, leaping over a puddle of yeah-that-was-definitely-vomit, to shrug regretfully at the guy who failed to nick your wallet outside Wasabi, and to fall asleep with a magical sigh, and to dream. Its new release, Inside Out, is perhaps my favourite yet. Despite it having no superheroes, no magic carpets, in fact nothing that flies at all.
The film is set inside the brain of an 11-year-old girl, Riley, and the heroes are her five emotions. They bicker like colleagues in a call centre, taking night shifts »
