Monsters at Work just added Mindy Kaling to the voice cast!

The 41-year-old actress and producer will star as Val Little, an enthusiastic member of the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team (aka “MIFT”).

In addition to Mindy, Bonnie Hunt has also joined the upcoming animated series and will reprise her role as Ms. Flint, who was formerly in charge of training new Scarers at Monsters, Inc., but will now manage the department responsible for recruiting and training the funniest monsters to become Jokesters.

The series centers on Tylor Tuskmon (Ben Feldman), who is an eager young monster who graduated top of his class at Monsters University and always dreamed of becoming a Scarer until he lands a job at Monsters, Incorporated, and discovers that scaring is out and laughter is in.

After Tylor is temporarily reassigned to the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team (MIFT), he must work alongside a misfit bunch of mechanics while setting his sights on becoming a Jokester.

Returning to the series are Billy Crystal and John Goodman as Mike and Sully, as well as Pixar good luck charm, John Ratzenberger as Yeti and Tylor’s dad, Bernard.

Jennifer Tilly will be back as Mike’s girlfriend Celia Mae and Bob Peterson as Roze, twin sister to his original Monsters, Inc.

Monsters at Work will also star Henry Winkler as Fritz, the scatterbrained boss; Lucas Neff as Duncan, an opportunistic plumber; and Alanna Ubach as Cutter, the officious rule follower, as well as Stephen Stanton as Smitty and Needleman, the bumbling custodial team at Monsters, Inc., and Aisha Tyler as Tylor’s mom, Millie Tuskmon.

The highly anticipated series will premiere on Friday, July 2 on Disney+.

B.J. Novak Will Pull Off The Ultimate Christmas Surprise For Mindy Kaling's Daughter Katherine

Katherine Kaling is about to get a big surprise for Christmas this year.

The three-year-old daughter of Mindy Kaling is getting a personal visit from Santa Claus this year, thanks to her godfather, and Mindy‘s BFF and The Office co-star, B.J. Novak.

Mindy opened up about the plan in a video interview with designer Tory Burch.

“When you have your own kids, you can kind of make stuff up and then just decide that you’re going to do that every single year,” Mindy explained.

She continued, revealing that B.J. will be donning a red suit for Kit‘s surprise.

“This is the whole ruse that we’re going to do, and this might become a tradition,” she says. “Her godfather is B.J. Novak, and he is going to show up and go to our living room, where the tree is, in a Santa costume. Just so you know, we’re Hindu and B.J. is Jewish, so this is, like, cultural appropriation on our part.”

Just recently, Mindy shared a throwback of herself in her very first role as she took part in the “How It Started” meme on social media and B.J. had a really sweet reaction to it. See what it was here!
