Mindy Kaling Used To Prank B.J. Novak On 'The Office'

Mindy Kaling flashes a smile alongside her former The Office co-star and best friend B.J. Novak while attending the For Your Consideration panel for her hit show The Mindy Project held at the UCB Sunset Theater on Wednesday (June 8) in Los Angeles.

The 36-year-old actress was also joined by her co-stars Beth Grant, Xosha Roquemore, Fortune Feimster and writers Charlie Grandy, Chris Schleicher, David Stassen and Lang Fisher while B.J. served as moderator.

B.J. recently revealed that Mindy used to prank him all the time on the set of The Office.

“She would lie to me,” B.J. told The Guardian. “She would make up these – just out of nowhere – purposeless lies that I believed.There was this director, this older woman who directed a couple of episodes [of The Office], and Mindy told me I couldn’t tell anyone, but Greg Daniels, the show runner, used to date this woman in college. And then Greg asked me what I thought of her cut and I lied to Greg and said I thought it was great, because I was nervous to insult his ex-girlfriend, so he didn’t make the edits that I wanted.”

“And later I asked him about it and he was like, ‘What are you talking about? She’s 20 years older than I am, we didn’t go to college together!’ I realized that Mindy just made it up and it actually affected my work life!,” B.J. added.
