Frontman Matt Berninger also has a number of lines in the show. He comments: “I’m a big fan of the show and in interviews, they would ask me what I’d been reading lately and I kept saying The Mindy Project because I watch more TV than I read.”
He added of his speaking part: “I have a line in the show, and actually, I think I was so good that they gave me another one… I got two or three lines now.”
