Office star John Krasinski is popping over to Sesame Street to teach us a valuable, hilarious lesson about vocabulary, with a little help from proud little lamb owner Murray. In an exclusive clip, Krasinski tries desperately to explain the definition of the word “soggy.” Shenanigans ensue, involving a sock, a sponge, and an elephant. Krasinski looks like he’s having a ball, so clearly there are no hard feelings about Elmo’s spot-on Jim Halpert impression.
John Krasinski is teaming up with Aaron Sorkin for a miniseries about the Chateau Marmont!
Based on the book Life at the Marmont by a former co-owner of the hotel, John and Aaron will tell “the interconnected stories of the people who frequented the famed Hollywood landmark over several generations,” Deadline reports.
John, 31, will produce the film and hopes that he can bring in many different actors to play roles in the project. “My dream is to have a whole slew of great actors —some very famous and some not famous at all, to make it an homage to Hollywood,” he said.
John Krasinski isn’t the lead character of Something Borrowed, but you wouldn’t know that from the recent barrage of TV ads, all of which lean heavily on his presence to sell a story with an eyebrow-raising plot: Ginnifer Goodwin’s character sleeps with the fiancé of her best friend, played by Kate Hudson, but you’re still supposed to root for her. Meanwhile, Krasinski is the platonic fourth lead who occasionally comments on the action, but it’s a testament to his natural likability — and, perhaps, his big-screen potential — that the studio is putting its marketing campaign on his shoulders. As he continues to topline The Office after the departure of Steve Carell, it may even be a sign that he could follow in the footsteps of another refugee from NBC Thursday nights who made it big in the movies: George Clooney. To find out, we spoke to industry insiders to answer the question: If John Krasinski were a stock, would you buy, sell, or hold?
John Krasinski is in talks to star in the indie comedy “Nobody Walks,” The Wrap reports; the film is co-written by Lena Dunham, who made waves with her independent hit, “Tiny Furniture.” “Nobody Walks,” is about “a young artist who is invited into a Los Angeles family’s home — and disrupts the family’s life,” The Wrap says.
Olivia Thirlby is also in talks to co-star.
Krasinski had his biggest film success as the co-headliner of the indie film, “Away We Go,” playing the slightly eccentric yet charming husband of Maya Rudolph. He’s also appeared in the romantic comedies, “It’s Complicated,” and “License to Wed,” the latter of which he starred in with Mandy Moore and Robin Williams. Krasinski played an early 20th century football player in George Clooney’s comedy “Leatherheads.” He’ll next be seen in yet another rom-com, “Something Borrowed.”
On Steve Carell’s departure from The Office this season.
Shooting the last episodes with Carell has been “completely bittersweet,” says Krasinski. “It’s an insanely special relationship we have with each other on the show, and Steve’s leaving is the first time we’ve been snapped out of it and had to think about how much we all rely on each other. No one can replace him. That goes for him as an actor, because no one has the sense of humor he does, but also there’s no person who has his incredible positivity and professionalism, and just a really good heart. So we’re losing a friend first and foremost.”

Emily Blunt flashed her British passport last night as she and her husband John Krasinski got ready to board a flight out of LAX. The actress is in double promotional mode chatting up both Gnomeo and Juliet, which she recently shared all about at the junket, and her project with Matt Damon called The Adjustment Bureau.
IGN spoke to Office star John Krasinski about the current season, Steve Carell’s imminent departure and other upcoming storylines. Here’s what he had to say!
IGN: Have the writers kept quiet what their master plan is still or do you have an idea how they’re handling Michael’s departure now?
Krasinski: I do. The ending of this… the surprises are going to be phenomenal, but Steve’s last moments will be really, I think, epic. And again, I’ve said this for years, but it’s true – our writers are so good, but they’re so good because they write real characters and real scenarios. Absolutely, we go to some zany places, but at the end of the day, what keeps everybody watching, hopefully, and what’s kept us so excited about doing it, is real moments. So when he leaves, yes it will be funny and yes it will be sentimental, but it won’t be one or the other in a huge way. It’s going to be a real man that you’ve seen for a really long time leaving the thing that he loves most. Which is not only his job, but his friends. And I just can’t wait to see it. I will be the first person to cry!
