“There’s not an insignificant part of me that thinks that Kelly might be in jail, a crime of passion,” Kaling said in a video that Variety shared online this week.

Kaling, who wrote the screenplay for and stars in the upcoming comedy-drama “Late Night,” also indicated her willingness to be involved in a possible reboot of the hit show, which aired its final episode in May 2013.
“I think that anything that [executive producer] Greg [Daniels] decided to do… I would watch and love and want to help him with,” she said.
