As a response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Krasinski launched a web series titled Some Good News (SGN) on YouTube in March 2020. The series featured celebrities such as Steve Carell, Robert De Niro, the entire original Broadway cast of Hamilton, Brad Pitt, Samuel L. Jackson, Oprah Winfrey, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Steven Spielberg, Jon Stewart, Malala Yousafzai, and The Office cast.

On April 17th, 2020, Krasinski hosted a Livestream virtual prom for high school students whose proms were canceled due to the pandemic; 210,000 people watched the event, which featured live performances by Billie Eilish, Finneas, the Jonas Brothers, and DJ D-Nice.

ViacomCBS announced on May 22, 2020, that they had acquired the show for broadcast on CBS All Access, but Krasinski later confirmed that he and ViacomCBS did not proceed with development plans for the company’s streaming platform.

John Krasinski 13 Hours

Krasinski starred in Michael Bay’s biographical war film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, which was based on Mitchell Zuckoff’s 2014 book of the same name. The film follows six members of the Annex Security Team as they fight to defend the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, after waves of Islamic militant attacks on September 11, 2012. Krasinski played Jack Silva, the team’s newest member, and a former US Navy SEAL. The film’s production began on April 27, 2015, in Malta and Morocco. On January 15, 2016, the film was released. It grossed $69 million worldwide against a $50 million production budget.

John Krasinski The Office

Krasinski’s big break came in 2004 when he was cast in the NBC sitcom The Office, a remake of the popular British TV show of the same name. He played Jim Halpert, an intelligent and mild-mannered sales representative and, in later seasons, co-manager of the paper distribution company Dunder Mifflin in Scranton, Pennsylvania, in the series, a mockumentary about life at a mid-sized paper supply company.

The characters played by Krasinski and Jenna Fischer also served as the series’ central love interests. Krasinski conducted research in Scranton and interviewed employees at actual paper companies in preparation for his role. He also shot the Scranton footage used in the opening credits. He appeared in every episode of the show and directed several of them, including “Sabre.” Krasinski earned approximately $100,000 per episode of The Office’s third season, which was four times his salary for the previous two seasons.

John Krasinski SNL

Krasinski hosted his first episode of Saturday Night Live, which was watched by 6.69 million people and received positive reviews from critics. Saturday Night Live is an American late-night live sketch comedy and variety show created and developed by Lorne Michaels and Dick Ebersol. Michaels is currently the showrunner of the show. George Carlin hosted the show’s debut on NBC on October 11, 1975, under the original title NBC’s Saturday Night.

The show’s comedy sketches, which frequently parody current culture and politics, are performed by a large and diverse cast of repertory and newer cast members. Each episode is hosted by a celebrity guest, who usually delivers the opening monologue and performs in sketches with the cast, with musical guests providing featured performances. A typical episode starts with a cold open sketch that ends with someone breaking character and proclaiming, “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!” and thus officially kicking off the show.

John Krasinski A Quiet Place Part II 

Krasinski directed and co-wrote the post-apocalyptic horror thriller A Quiet Place in 2018, in which he also co-starred with his wife Emily Blunt. It was released on April 6, 2018, by Paramount Pictures and received widespread critical acclaim, with rating it 95 percent Fresh based on 367 reviews, with the site describing Krasinski as a “rising talent.” The film was also a box office success, grossing over $340 million worldwide. Following the critical and commercial success of A Quiet Place, the series was renewed for a second season four months before its premiere. Krasinski directed and co-wrote the sequel, A Quiet Place Part II, in which he also appeared as a supporting actor.
