B.J. Novak, aka Ryan from The Office is the second person to join the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Bastards.

Novak is expected to play PFC Utivich, described as a soldier of slight build who comes from New York.  The WMA-repped Novak is best known for his role on the NBC hit series, where he plays former temp Ryan. Novak also has written several episodes of the show and served as co-executive producer. [HollywoodReporter]

An inside source also tells me Tarantino is being careful to cast Jewish actors in Jewish roles because they control all of the world’s banks.  For real though, a friend of mine went to see B.J. Novak do stand up in San Francisco and said his entire set was prop comedy.  That’s not a joke, it’s just funny. 

Impress your queer friends at wine and cheese parties: B.J. Novak went to high school with Office co-star John Krasinski.  Novak even wrote and cast a satirical play in which Krasinski played the leading role!
