“We haven’t talked about it yet,” he said when asked about a possible return. “I love those guys, though, and I would love to come back. It’s an amazing group of people. I love Mindy [Kaling]. I love that character that she wrote for me. That whole experience was like a master class in comedy, watching all of those actors. The writers were super gifted. I would love to come back. I’m not sure what’s going to happen yet, but I hope so.”
Messina was a series regular for Mindy‘s first four seasons, as Danny romanced and had a baby boy with Mindy Lahiri, played by star/creator Mindy Kaling. But he was officially demoted to recurring guest star last year, and hasn’t appeared on the show since October’s Season 5 premiere. The actor is plenty busy these days, though: He’s co-starring with Amy Adams in HBO’s upcoming adaptation of the Gillian Flynn thriller Sharp Objects.
