The latest of Hollywood's multi-talented golden boys, actor-writer B.J. Novak was on the fast track to having a truly charmed career, most evidently following the success of the American version of the U.K. sitcom, "The Office" (NBC, 2004-13), where he served as both writer and on screen performer. Groomed for success since early childhood, Novak, the son of noted editor and comedy scholar, William Novak, literally grew up surrounded by celebrities, comedians, and stand-up comics - an environment in which he would flourish throughout his life.
