"The Office" star B.J. Novak is in the action film, but not much has been released about his mysterious role. "I'm in a couple of scenes," Novak tells The Huffington Post. "I was never told whether or not I could say [what the role is]."

While Novak couldn't say outright who he will be playing, he did offer up a few clues. "I can say that I work at Oscorp," Novak teases. "And I am someone from the comic books, someone from the original. So, yeah, I'm somebody. I wouldn't say I'm pivotal, but I'm not an extra, either."

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" hits theaters May 2, 2014.
