‘Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Reveals an ‘Office’ Nazi Hunter in the Cast — PICS

While Sam Raimi’s third Spider-Man film might be a tear-inducing memory for many of us, there are a handful of Hollywood names who owe their big screen careers to the trilogy. Known best for their work on television, the likes of James Franco and Topher Grace joined the world of cinema with Raimi’s series. And this promotion of sorts seems to carry forth in director Marc Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man reboot. The filmmaker, who has been tweeting a slew of pictures from the set of his developing second Peter Parker chapter, reveals the inclusion of one B.J. Novak in the cast — the actor known best as Ryan Howard, the egomaniacal temp/executive from The Office.

Novak is revealed in a joyless pair of specs in the below image from the Amazing Spider-Man 2 set. Although a small but prominent role in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious basterds predicted a transition to film for the actor, we have yet to see him continue a cinematic streak. But this surprise turn in the Marvel venture could mean bright things for Novak’s big screen future. Click the image below to see more pics from the Amazing Spider-Man 2 set.

Novak is also slated to appear in the comedy The Internship and the dramatic biography film Saving Mr. Banks. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will hit theaters in spring of 2014.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
