B.J. Novak, who both wrote for and played Ryan in NBC’s The Office, asked his old co-star and real-life buddy Mindy Kaling to appear in his oh-so-French book trailer. Promoting his collection of short stories called One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories, Novak and Kaling play up the French stereotype of cultured pretensions, before breaking character and becoming BFFs again. (Kaling even calls Novak “Beej.”)
The book, which was excerpted in The New Yorker, is due out on Feb. 4.
