T.J. Miller Joins Spielberg’s “Ready Player One”

“Silicon Valley” and “Deadpool” star T.J. Miller has joined the cast of Steven Spielberg’s “Ready Player One” at Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow.

An adaptation of the sci-fi novel by Ernest Cline, the story set in a virtual world called Oasis in which a teenager (Tye Sheridan) finds himself competing in a treasure hunt against ruthless foes after the enigmatic founder (Mark Rylance) of the game dies and offers his fortune as the grand prize.

Miller will play i-R0k, an annoying troller in the online forums of the game. Olivia Cooke, Simon Pegg and Ben Mendelsohn also star in the film which is aiming for a late June start of production. Spielberg, Donald De Line, Kristie Macosko Krieger and Dan Farah will produce.
