Last night (August 26th) Fox hosted a screening of their new Tuesday night comedy lineup – New Girl, Raising Hope, Ben and Kate, and The Mindy Project – at Santa Monica College’s Broad Stage.

Dakota Johnson, Nat Faxon, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Mindy Kaling, Chris Messina, Martha Plimpton and Garrett Dillahunt all took part in a Q&A session following a pilot screening, which was simulcast in other major cities.

Kaling, who is friends with both Greenfield and Johnson, talked about how similar their characters were to their off-screen personas. 

“I know Max pretty well and he’s such a gentlemanly, normal guy, who plays this character really well,” Kaling insisted, according to the Huffington Post. Johnson disagreed. “I’m gonna go the other way — I work with Max, one of my closest pals and I think he’s pretty close to the character,” he joked.

And what about Kaling’s rom-com obsessed OB/GYN character in her new series?  ”I think the character on the on the show, there’s a bigger overlap than I [like] to admit … The character thinks that she’s going to end up marrying Chris Evans and I think that I’m going to end up marrying Chris Evans. I’m a lot more boring; I don’t go on dates with Ed Helms and Bill Hader.”

Fox’s Tuesday night lineup kicks off September 25th with New Girl.
