John Krasinski

John Krasinski is an Emmy nominated actor and director best known for portraying Jim Halpert on The Office, his turn as the titular character in Amazon’s Jack Ryan series, and writing and directing the hit horror thrillers A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place II. But Krasinski’s skills don’t stop at the screen; He’s also an ordained minister of the Universal Life Church!

Krasinski’s breakthrough role was in the mockumentary comedy series The Office as Jim Halpert. The show was a mega-hit for NBC, and the will-they won’t-they romance of Halpert’s Jim and his love interest Pam was a major key to the show’s success. A multi-talented performer, Krasinski not only starred in nine seasons of the show, but even directed several episodes too.

After The Office turned him into a household name, Krasinski took to creating his own films, writing, directing, and starring in the critically and commercially successful thrillers A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place II. Starring alongside his wife, Emily Blunt, Krasinski proved that not only can he make audiences laugh, he can make them afraid, too.

At the height of the pandemic in 2020, Krasinski started a web series called Some Good News, filmed from his home in Brooklyn. The show was intended to be a beam of positivity in a dark time. In a very memorable episode, Krasinski got ordained by the Universal Life Church to officiate the wedding of a pair of The Office superfans over Zoom! Not only were their parents (virtually) invited, but the entire cast of The Office dropped into the Zoom call as well to wish them well, dance, and celebrate.

From the office to the altar, Krasinski’s a man of many talents, and we can’t wait to see what movies (or weddings) he does next!
