Chris Messina Does Sexy Striptease as “Diamond Dan” on Mindy Project’s Season 3 Premiere: See GIFs

Don't pick your jaw off the floor just yet! Chris Messina made viewers swoon with Aaliyah's choreographed "Try Again" dance, and melted hearts with those adorkable red reading glasses, but nothing else he's done has topped what went down on The Mindy Project's season three opener on Tuesday, Sept. 16. 

Warning: Spoilers ahead!

Messina's character, Dr. Danny Castellano, gave girlfriend Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling) a sexy, half-naked striptease during the show's final scene in honor of his (gasp!) stripper past under the alias "Diamond Dan." The secret was revealed after Mindy found a man's hot pink thong in Danny's drawer and Morgan Tookers (Ike Barinholtz) stepped in to crack the case.

The news was surprising coming from a religious Staten Island native whose most annoying quirk is his love for tonic water, but Danny had a sweet reason for collecting $1 bills — he was trying to pay for medical school and pay off his mom's mortgage.

Alas, Mindy didn't mind his secret past (she did have her own sex tape go viral, after all), and ended up getting a private show set to Lenny Kravitz's "American Woman." Mindy grabbed her glasses for a better look while viewers probably hit rewind.
