Personal Life

Ike married accountant Erica Hanson in 2009, and they have three daughters. While filming the 2018 film "Blockers," Barinholtz fractured two cervical vertebrae in his neck when he filming a falling stunt. Ike had to wear a neck brace during his recovery, and it was incorporated into "The Mindy Project." Barinholtz told "People" magazine, "After the accident, I talked to Mindy and we agreed that the only option was writing it into the show. Luckily, on 'The Mindy Project' I play a character who could break his neck falling out of his bunk bed and it's completely believable." He added, "Sometimes it takes getting hurt to realize how lucky you are to have great people in your life. My family has been taking amazing care of me, and Mindy and all the folks at the show have been so kind. Also, many friends have sent lots of food which is great β€” but I can't exercise, so in a way, it's exceptionally cruel."

Award Nominations

In 2013, Barinholtz earned a Writers Guild of America Award nomination for New Series for "The Mindy Project," and in 2017, he shared a BAM Award nomination for Best Cast with his "The Disaster Artist" co-stars. In 2018, Ike received a New Mexico Film Critics Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor for "Blockers."
