"Hunting Nazis is a good job if you can get it," says B.J. Novak with a big smile.
Novak had the pleasure of popping off rounds at those Nazi scumbags in Quentin Tarantino's WWII epic Inglourious Basterds. In the film, he's a member of the eponymous unit charged with scalping the enemy and going right for the head honcho himself, Hitler. As PFC Utivich, The Office star definitely got the rhythm of scalping and murdering Nazis down to a science.
However, he had a solid selection of music on his iPod to help him get in to the "scalpin' mood."
"I actually have stolen a lot of songs from Quentin Tarantino," he says. "I got into the Grindhouse soundtrack a lot when we were filming this movie. I also really listened to some of the songs that I knew were going to be in this movie like the David Bowie song 'Cat People (Putting Out the Fire.' I put that on my iPod."
Novak opened up his playlist for ARTISTdirect.com in this exclusive feature. It's definitely influenced by Mr. Tarantino! Check out Novak's playlist in the video below and don't miss him in Inglourious Basterds, Friday August 21.
