The Office Star Makes a Hipster Mix

Posted By on Thu, Jun 25, 2009 at 3:26 PM


We pretty much love everybody on The Office (except John Krasinski — dude reminds us of a less-smarmy Jimmy Fallon, who we despise). But we love no one more than we love Mindy Kaling, who plays Kelly Kapoor on the show.

Kaling, who's also a writer and co-producer on the show, is one of the funniest people alive. She also has pretty good taste in music.

That's probably why Merge Records tapped her for their cool Score! project, which celebrates the record label's 20th anniversary with special mixes of Merge songs created by famous people.

Kaling is still putting the finishing touches on her mix, which will benefit Doctors Without Borders.

Best of all, the autobio she penned for Merge's website is killer. We didn't know she played percussion! —Michael Gallucci
