BEVERLY HILLS -- Mindy Kaling, the star of the Fox newcomer “The Mindy Project" -- which has big, fat hit written pretty much all over it -- met the press earlier, but a little news broke out during the session here.

Asked about her character Kelly Kapoor's future on “The Office” (and as you recall, her story wasn't exactly wrapped -- at all --  last season), she said: “I think I'm going to be in the premiere which I'm really excited about. And maybe another episode . . .I got so attached to that character even though I have like a line every episode. It's fun to see what's going to happen to Kelly.” By the way, Ed Helms has a big cameo in the “Project” premiere, as does Bill Hader.
