Justin Bartha: Brainy Sidekick in National Treasure Sequel

Reuniting with Cage and Bruckheimer in Walt Disney Pictures' new action adventure.

Justin Bartha was still something of a newcomer to the movies when he was cast as computer geek Riley Poole, the out-of-his-depth accomplice of Nicolas Cage’s Ben Gates, in the 2004 blockbuster “National Treasure.” Bartha nonetheless gave a very funny, scene-stealing performance thanks to some cleverly off-kilter line readings, an easy way with the script’s technical jargon and the occasional, quizzical lift of an eyebrow.

Now, the boyish-looking actor, who also starred in the romantic hit “Failure to Launch” with Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew McConaughey, reunites with Cage and producer Jerry Bruckheimer in Walt Disney Pictures’ new action adventure “National Treasure: Book of Secrets.”
