John Krasinkski - The Early Years
Before he was Jim on The Office, John Krasinski was a very enthusiastic NASCAR supporter. And before that, he was a young actor who strolled into our casting session and made it clear he was a future star. Did this 3-minute compilation reel from our shoot catapult him into the spotlight? Almost certainly possibly maybe.
He even spoke about the experience during this interview with NPR (around the 17:30 mark).
And the story showed up in the press as well. We’ll let Matt Kenseth take the credit; he was awesome to work with too.
