Rhea Perlman May Have Pulled Out Mindy Kaling's Hair While Filming 'The Mindy Project'

Rhea Perlman's having the time of her life shooting "The Mindy Project" this season.

The veteran actress told HuffPost Live on Monday that she'd be happy to be featured as a series regular in her role as Danny Castellano's mother, and she spoke specifically about a physical sequence she had with Mindy Kaling that they perhaps got a little too excited about.

"We rehearsed it a little bit, but because it's physical, we did quite a few takes," Perlman recounted. "I think I pulled her hair out of her head a couple of times."

Still, the former "Cheers" star said "it's a lot of fun doing the physical stuff." The two ladies' characters hysterically clash throughout the show, as Kaling plays the girlfriend of Perlman's character's son -- Danny Castalano's -- girlfriend.
