You might be surprised to learn that there’s a little bit of hipster inside Ryan Howard on ‘The Office.’

At a recent red carpet, B.J. Novak let us in on what might be coming up for his character, the shady ‘Office’ alcoholic who was once busted for fraud.

“You don’t know his hipster artistic ambitions but you will find out,” he said about Ryan. “I would also love to take him into overemotional territory. Deep sensitive soul to an inappropriate level.”

Could this sensitive soul stuff have anything to do with Kelly and Ryan possibly rekindling their romance?

Novak, who just took his place alongside Brad Pitt on ‘Inglourious Basterds’ also says he prefers television to acting on the big screen. “TV has been very good to me,” he said when asked to choose between the two. “It’s really where the good people are, so just follow the good people.”

The Office airs tonight on NBC.
