Unless you are an avid watcher of The Mindy Project (as you should be), or have seen the classic 2014 film Neighbors (rent that sh*t now), then you probably recognize the dude in the picture above but can’t quite place him. It’s writer/actor Ike Barinholtz!
He currently stars on The Mindy Project as nurse Morgan Tookers and also writes for the series.
He also participated in a sketch with Miley Cyrus and Andy Samberg at this year’s VMAs.
But you might have forgotten, or just never realized at all, that Ike was a cast member on MADtv in the early aughts. His most memorable work from that time is the “Laguna Biotch” sketch. You know, the one that called out how everyone on Laguna Beach pronounced the name “Jessica” as “JESCA.” Yes, he played Jason Wahler AND Talan and we know we just made your life by resurfacing this clip:
May your star keep on rising, Ike.
