John Krasinski On New Sequel, Chris Evans & More
We all know and love John Krasinski for his role as Jim Halpert in the NBC sitcom, The Office. Dunder Mifflin for life, of course. But he might be the first Hollywood actor to get where he is now without any scandals. He is undoubtedly the least problematic actor in the industry and the most underrated.

On Upcoming Movie
— A Quiet Place Part II (@quietplacemovie) January 31, 2020
But how is he the star of the sequel if he died in the first film? That’s the question we all had when we saw the trailer and Ellen decided to ask him.
“That’s what ego is,” Krasinski joked. “But no, I wasn’t going to even do a second one since the first one was such a personal experience. It was my love letter to the kids, which looks insane now that you’re watching that. But it was really important for me to continue the metaphor and we started to deal with how it all started. So there’s a bit in the movie that you get to know how it all started.”
There was also a scene in the film where Emily Blunt, his wife, had to have a bus smash into her. John revealed he told her and she was a good sport but once he put her in the car the bus was supposed to smash into, he realized he just put his entire marriage in the car. And if the scene hadn’t gone well, ooff. We DO NOT want to think about that. But John was very cheery about it. Classic Krasinski.
John And Chris: High School Rivals
Ellen also asked him about his Super Bowl commercial with Chris Evans. He revealed he actually went to Evan’s rival high school and they might have played against each other at a high school game and didn’t know. They both also auditioned for Captain America that obviously Chris ended up getting. But he said he wouldn’t have done as well as Chris did as Captain America.
He was also really excited to have used his fake Boston Accent while making the commercial.

John Krasinski’s Daughter Is Really Funny
John recalled the time when he wanted to make a gallery wall when Ellen asked what his six-year-old, Hazel was up to. He had laid out all brand new frames on the ground before putting them up on the wall to see how they would look. And Hazel leans over his shoulder and says, “So good, Daddy. But don’t you think you should put pictures of us up?”
I mean, come on. That’s funny. And has good timing. Like father, like daughter, that’s all we’re gonna say.
