First Look: 'The Office' Star B.J. Novak Joins 'Amazing Spider-Man 2'

Another day, another cast member for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Just last month Chris Cooper boarded the sequel as another potential future villain in the form of Norman Osborn, founder of Oscorp and father to Peter Parker's best friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan). Now director Marc Webb has keyed us into another cast member, likely only playing a bit part, as he tweeted one of his behind-the-scenes production photos, and it just happened to be of "The Office" star B.J. Novak. While the photo looks rather ominous, it's likely Novak is playing some university figure as the story is said to take Parker to college. Read more.

Though Iron Man and Cowboys & Aliens directorJon Favreau was looking to slow down on the action for an adaptation of the hit musical Jersey Boysat Columbia Pictures, producer Graham King moved the project to Warner Bros. once he got a first look deal with the studio.

Pixar Confirms 'Nemo' Sequel 'Finding Dory' Set for November 2015

 Even though we have to wait over two more years to see this, Disney and Pixar have officially confirmed and announced details on the Finding Nemo sequel. It will be officially called Finding Dory, which certainly hints at the plot, and will be arriving in theaters on Wednesday, November 25th, 2015, Thanksgiving week. It was first revealed last summer that Andrew Stanton would be returning to Pixar after making John Carter to develop this new Finding Nemo sequel. Ellen DeGeneresis also confirmed to return as the voice of Dory, which is just perfect. "There is no Dory without Ellen," said Stanton. We couldn't agree more. Read more.

With Emma Watson Out, Three New Ingenues Face Off For Cinderella Lead 

Bella Heathcote, Lily James, and Margot Robbie are all being screen tested for the role in London this week.
