John Krasinski is so much more than Jim Halpert from The Office. He’s also a writer/director, and one of the hardest working men in Hollywood. Looking to shed his everyman image from the NBC comedy, Krasinski starred in a few action films before settling in behind the camera for A Quiet Place. The unsettling soundless horror film was a huge hit and established the star as a force to reckoned with in the industry. It doesn’t hurt that everyone he’s ever worked with loves him. Here’s everything you need to know to help you fall in love with Krasinski, too!
He Did A Lot Of Research For The Office
After getting the role of Jim Halpert on The Office, John Krasinski flew out to Scranton, Pennsylvania to see what the city was really like. He interviewed people in the paper supply business and shot footage of the area.
Believe it or not, the footage that Krasinski shot ended up being used for the show’s opening credits. It turns out he dipped his toes into directing long before he was hiding from monsters and protecting his family in A Quiet Place.
