“The Office” star B.J. Novak is apparantly taking a leave of absense. The Ausiello Files broke the story that has yet to be confirmed by NBC. B.J. is leaving to star in the new Quentin Tarantino flick “Inglourious Basterds.”
Is he planning to return though? The stories are conflicting, I’m afraid.
According to one insider, Novak will be MIA for “several episodes” but will return later this season. Another source, however, says Novak may be done with The Office for good, at least as a performer. “He may write more episodes,” whispers my mole, “but as far as playing Ryan, I think he’s ready to move on.”
I hope he doesn’t leave completely. Maybe an occasional guest appearance would make me happy?
So will Ryan be going back to the slammer?
