Back in March, director Marc Webb confirmed that “The Office” star B.J. Novak had joined the cast of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, though he never specified which character he would be playing. In a recent interview with The Huffington Post, Novak offered some hints as to who his character is, saying:
“I’m in a couple of scenes. Yeah, I was never told whether or not I could say. I can say that I work at Oscorp. And I am someone from the comic books, someone from the original. So, yeah, I’m somebody. I wouldn’t say I’m pivotal, but I’m not an extra, either.”
Who do you think Novak might be playing in the sequel? Could it be Otto Octavius whose arms were teased in yesterday’s trailer? Or perhaps it’s Spencer Smythe who has been the subject of multiple posts on the film’s viral site? Sound off with your theories below!
Opening in theaters on May 2, 2014, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, Chris Cooper, B.J. Novak and Sarah Gadon.
