John Krasinski

As the bright, but beleaguered Jim Halpert on NBC's hit comedy "The Office" (2005-2013), actor John Krasinski struck the fancy of both viewers and critics alike with his boyish antics and one-of-a-kind facial expressions, usually directed straight at the camera. As one of the few sane employees in the workplace asylum known as Dunder-Mifflin, Krasinski's Halpert was often forced to deal with such day-to-day challenges as the boredom of his hum-drum existence, the demands of an annoyingly needy boss (Steve Carell) and lastly, a crush on co-worker Pam (Jenna Fisher) that captured the public's attention until the characters actually dated and later married. Prior to his "Office" stardom, Krasinski had a handful of minor feature roles while logging episodes of popular shows like "Without a Trace" (CBS, 2002-09) and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" (NBC, 2001-2011). Because of his success, he landed roles in the features "Leatherheads" (2008), "Monsters vs. Aliens" (2009) and "Something Borrowed" (2011), which increased his profile. As he branched out into writing and directing with "Brief Interviews with Hideous Men" (2009), "The Promised Land" (2012) and "The Hollars" (2015), Krasinski allowed himself the opportunity to bring his Everyman charm to a much wider audience.
