Danny Castellano’s (Chris Messina) baby brother is coming to ‘The Mindy Project’! That’s right folks, the FOX comedy has booked British actor Max Minghella as Richie Castellano.
Creator Mindy Kaling, who plays the titular character in the hit comedy, first revealed the brotherly news on her Instagram by posting the following photo captioned, “The Brothers Castellano.”
Not only is this great news for ‘Mindy’ fans, but it’s also exciting news for Minghella. He’s a huge fan of the show. Last season, he tweeted about an episode, “Last week's episode of The Mindy Project is like a master class in romantic comedy.”
Wow, what a compliment for the show and Kaling! The funny lady responded by saying, “how did I miss this tweet?! Thank you, Max, I love impressing you.” I guess Minghella got in her good graces, and now he’s actually guest-starring on the show!
Minghella is best known for his role on ‘The Social Network,’ in addition to ‘The Ides of March’ and ‘The Internship.’
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see the interaction between Danny and Richie. Do you think he’ll be serious and somewhat bitter, like his brother?
‘The Mindy Project’ airs Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30c on FOX.
