First Look: 'The Office' Star B.J. Novak Joins 'Amazing Spider-Man 2'
Another day, another cast member for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Just last month Chris Cooper boarded the sequel as another potential future villain in the form of Norman Osborn, founder of Oscorp and father to Peter Parker's best friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan). Now director Marc Webb has keyed us into another cast member, likely only playing a bit part, as he tweeted one of his behind-the-scenes production photos, and it just happened to be of "The Office" star B.J. Novak. While the photo looks rather ominous, it's likely Novak is playing some university figure as the story is said to take Parker to college.
Here's the photo of B.J. Novak in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 from Marc Webb's Twitter:
Making a joke, Webb tweeted, "Day 38. A supposed rumor about a Dunder-Mifflin takeover of Oscorp?" But for those who don't watch "The Office," you might recognize him from Inglourious Basterds or Reign Over Me. He also hit on a pregnant Katherine Heigl in Knocked Up and voices Baker Smurf in The Smurfs. Novak joins an impressive cast that includes our returning leads Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone along with Jamie Foxx, Shailene Woodley, Paul Giamatti, Felicity Jones, Sally Field and even Martin Sheen (likely in some sort of flashback). The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters everywhere May 2nd, 2014. Excited?
