During the premiere of season three of The Mindy Project Tuesday night, Chris Messina — aka Danny Castellano — danced around partially clothed not once but twice, first to Boston's "More Than A Feeling" and then to Lenny Kravitz's "American Woman."

The episode – which was super funny otherwise, this show seems to have hit its stride – required Danny to do all this physical exertion because Mindy found out that he worked as a stripper to pay his way through medical school. But it actually wasn't th e first time Messina showed off his dancing skills; last season, he did a very good routine to "Try Again" by Aaliyah. At the time, he told Vulture that ever since the producers found out he used to dance as a kid, they've taken advantage of it. I mean, when you have a talent...don't waste it.
