Back in sixth grade, John nailed the role of Daddy Warbucks in a school production of “Annie.” He went to Newton South High School with B.J. Novak, who later starred alongside him in “The Office.” When they were seniors, John was in a play written by Novak. After graduating in 1997, he taught English in Costa Rica for the summer. He then pursued playwriting at Brown University, where he got his Bachelor of Arts in English in 2001; in 2019, Brown honored him with a degree. During college, John was part of the sketch comedy group Out of Bounds and coached youth basketball. Post-graduation, he furthered his studies at Connecticut’s National Theater Institute, England’s Royal Shakespeare Company, and New York’s Actors Center.


Krasinski went to New York to dive into acting, appearing in off-Broadway plays, commercials, and guest spots on TV shows. In 2002, he interned as a scriptwriter on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” a launchpad for “The Office” stars like Mindy Kaling and Ellie Kemper. In 2004, he landed the role of Jim Halpert on “The Office,” which ran from 2005 to 2013. Besides acting, Krasinski directed some episodes and shot the Scranton footage in the opening credits.

He was considered for “Captain America: The First Avenger” (2011) but lost the role to Chris Evans. In 2012, he starred in the indie film “Nobody Walks.”

Post-“The Office,” John directed, produced, and starred in “The Hollars” (2016) and “A Quiet Place” (2018), and appeared in “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” (2016) and “Detroit” (2018). He co-created and produced “Lip Sync Battle” and was an executive producer on “Manchester by the Sea” (2016). In 2018, he starred in Amazon Prime’s “Jack Ryan.” Amid the pandemic, he launched the YouTube series “Some Good News,” which he later sold to ViacomCBS. “A Quiet Place II” premiered in 2020, grossing $300 million.
