3 Truths & 1 Lie with The Mindy Project's Ike Barinholtz
The comedian knew President Obama before he was even a senator
1. He used to play basketball with President Obama.
“We used to play pick-up games in the park together all the time. It was before he was even a senator. I hope we’ll reconnect when he’s no longer busy being president.”
2. He’s a romantic.
“I’m a big gesture guy. These days, that means offering to change our [17-month-old] daughter [Foster]’s diaper and letting my wife [Erica] get good sleep.”
3. He has a green thumb.
“My wife loves flowers. When we were struggling financially, I became a master of keeping a bouquet alive for weeks.”
4. He was a train conductor for the Chicago Transit Authority.
“My line always ran on time!”
Which one of these wasn’t true?
“I wasn’t a conductor, but everyone assumes I was! I worked in marketing. It helped pay for improv classes I have seen a lot on those trains, though.”
