B.J. Novak Joins Bastards

“The Office” and “Knocked Up” star B.J. Novak is in talks to play one of Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Bastards” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The long-gestating film about a band of Jewish resisters in Vichy-era France stars Brad Pitt, while Eli Roth was announced yesterday to play one of the soldiers.

Novak is expected to play PFC Utivich, described as a soldier of slight build who comes from New York. Casting is being finalized for a Fall shoot in Europe and wrap time for a debut in May.
