Novak is also known for his work on NBC’s Emmy Award-winning comedy series The Office as an actor, writer, and executive producer, as a standup comedian, and for his performances in films such as Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds and Disney’s Saving Mr. Banks. He will next appear in The Founder alongside Michael Keaton. His debut collection of short stories, One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories, was a New York Times best seller, and Novak’s children’s book, The Book With No Pictures, is a #1 New York Times best seller.
