The Mindy Project’s Ike Barinholtz is writing a book

The Mindy Project

If you’re a fan of The Mindy Project, the former-Fox/soon-to-be-Hulu sitcom that co-stars God’s gift to us all Chris Messina, then you’ve probably spent some time wondering about Ike Barinholtz. In addition to playing lovable dim-bulb Morgan Tookers, Barinholtz is also one of the head writers for the show, and even directed an episode. “Sure, that’s all well and good,” you’re probably thinking, “but Mindy Kaling already wrote a book, and she runs that whole show! Why so lazy, Barinholtz?” Well, now he’ll have a response for you (or least one besides, “Because I’m also in a bunch of other stuff, if you’d bother to check IMDB. And you call me lazy?”). The Associated Press reports the writer-actor is coming out with a book, so that’s one less thing Mindy Kaling can give him shit about.

Barinholtz is releasing a collection of humorous essays with Grand Central Publishing, that reportedly covers “everything from sex to pizza.” He also assured everyone that the book would have “piping hot takes” on these subjects, which sounds logical when discussing pizza, but somewhat worrying on the sex front. There’s no title yet, and it’s not scheduled to come out until fall 2017, so that’s still a lot of time for him to be driven insane by people asking, “Hey, how’s that book coming along?” Fingers crossed that it ends up more like the delightful Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) and less like the depression-inducing Behind The Bell.
