Steven Spielberg’s no dummy. If he’s going to make a movie that largely revolves around internet trolls, he’s going to go right to a man who’s spent the last several years antagonizing people from behind (or, at least, adjacent to) a keyboard.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Silicon Valleys TJ Miller has joined the cast of Ready Player One, Spielberg’s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s ridiculously successful ode to the art of “Hey, I remember that.” Miller will play online griefer i-R0k, a minor character from the book, who targets hero Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) when he embarks upon a massive online scavenger hunt for control of a futuristic virtual world. Miller joins a cast that includes Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance, Ben Mendelsohn, and Olivia Cooke. It’s not clear whether Miller’s casting means the character will have an expanded role in Spielberg’s film; the actor has certainly proven that he can fill whatever space he’s given while the camera rolls.
