What Exactly Happened To B.J. Novak?
- Published on Aug 12, 2019
- B.J. Novak played Dunder Mifflin employee Ryan Howard during The Office's long network run, but he hasn't latched onto an equally high-profile project since the series left the air. That doesn't mean he's been sitting idle, however. This is what B.J. Novak has been up to.
While he definitely isn't appearing on TV quite as much, B.J. Novak never left television. The year after The Office ended, Novak had a cameo on the comedy Community and a recurring role on Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom playing Lucas Pruitt, the owner of the company airing News Night. Along with a bit of voice work for the animated show Arthur, Novak enjoyed a recurring role as Mindy's ex-boyfriend Jamie on The Mindy Project and played a satirical version of himself on two episodes of the musical romantic comedy series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
Novak is also doing a lot more work behind the camera, particularly in terms of his work on The Mindy Project. Just as he did for The Office, Novak has worked as writer, director, and producer on The Mindy Project, which isn't surprising considering his long history with the show's creator and star, Mindy Kaling.
