If for some reason people demanded it, I want to give people what they want.

Barinholtz also starred in 'The Morgan Project,' a series of webisodes centered on his 'Mindy' character. Barinholtz talked to's Co-News Editor, Allyson Koerner about working with James Franco on his favorite episode and the possibility of Morgan getting his own show. Here's an excerpt:

TVRage: As much as I love ‘The Mindy Project,’ I really enjoyed the Morgan web series, ‘The Morgan Project.’ If the opportunity ever came about, would you consider a Morgan spin-off?

Barinholtz: (laughs) Yes, if for some reason people demanded it. I want to give people what they want. That was a really, really fun experience shooting that. I really loved the scenes. I just totally want to push Mindy out of the focus, and really make it more about me. So, I’m waiting for the day, where I’m able to pin it into the lead role on this show and make it all about me. Any day now that’s going to happen.
