Party Lines Slideshow: B.J. Novak, Jason Bateman, Isabella Rossellini, and More at the Webby Awards

At the Webby Awards, held earlier this week at Cipriani Wall Street, we asked host B.J. Novak what he thought of recent web phenomenon ChatRoulette. Turns out, Novak has already tried to use it for a plotline on The Office. "We had our Office writers' assistant Kelly Hannon go on ChatRoulette for us to do research for a potential story line," he told us. "I’m surprised we haven’t been sued for putting her through that. It’s a dangerous place, ChatRoulette." Don't worry, we alerted him, they're supposedly working on software that can detect a penis and then flag those users."That software will be misused by somebody soon. They have penis-detecting software now? That’s not gonna stay on ChatRoulette’s server for long." For more celebrities talking Internet, click through to our Party Lines slideshow.
