John Krasinski says he would 'absolutely' love to do a reunion for The Office
'Tis the season for reboots upon reboots - we're looking at you Will & Grace, Charmed, Twin Peaks and X-Files.
But it feels like there's rumours buzzing of one possible reboot that just never seem to fade. We're talking, of course, about The Office.
And John Krasinski - who played Jim Halpert for all nine seasons of the NBC comedy - recently fuelled reunion rumours, as he paid tribute to the "he most important people in that most important experience in my career".
“The Office was absolutely everything to me. I mean it is my beginning and my end. I’m pretty sure at the end of my career I’ll still be known for Jim,” the actor told Esquire.
“That was my first experience with Hollywood. It was the first creative family I’ve ever had. In many ways, they will always be the most important people in that most important experience in my career. So yeah, if they did a reunion, I would absolutely love to do it.”
And Krasinski - who directed the upcoming horror film A Quiet Place II - recalled how he didn't see a clear path for himself following the end of The Office in 2013.
“The Office was so big at the time, but I think a lot of people were afraid to cast certain cast members in anything else because they were just known as that one thing, which I completely understood,” he explained. “It wasn't an aggressive anger towards it. It was just a reality that I think I wasn't, if I'm honest, genuinely prepared for.”
A Quiet Place II is set to premiere in Irish cinemas on March 19.
