My Funny Valentine: Vera Mindy Chokalingam (Mindy Kaling) (6 of 14)

This is a seasonal segment called “My Funny Valentine:…”. 14 comediennes who make my heart go boom.

Vera Mindy Chokalingam (Mindy Kaling)

Today’s Funny Valentine is Vera Mindy Chokalingam, otherwise known as Mindy Kaling. I first saw Mindy in the hysterical film The 40 Year Old Virgin, she played Paul Rudd‘s supposedly loose ex-girlfriend Amy.  

She’s more popular for her role as Kelly Kapoor on the American version of The Office“. That is where my affinity for her grew. Her diminutive stature combined with her adorably squeaky voice makes for an irresistably cute mousiness that can easily double as coy.

The Cambridge native is not only an actress but a writer as well. She’s written several episodes of “The Office” and recently signed a contract in May of 2009 in which she will develop and star in a new comedy while continuing to write, produce, and act in “The Office”.

Here she is performing at OSU:
