John Krasinski: If It Weren't for The Office, I'd Never Have Met My Wife Emily Blunt
John Krasinski is very grateful for his role on The Office -- because it's how he met his wife!
After nine seasons and seven years on the show, The Office is coming to an end and Krasinski is wrapping up his role as the lovable Jim Halpert. Before landing the role in 2005, Krasinski told Matt Lauer on the TODAY show Monday that he nearly quit acting. Luckily, his mom convinced him to stick it out.
"It's a little bit of an existential crisis after a while, because I wouldn't have met my wife [Emily Blunt], I wouldn't have been out in L.A.," he said. "Truly, when I say the show has given me everything, it's given me everything."
Although The Office is ending, Krasinski's future career is looking bright.
He most recently tackled producing, co-writing and acting in Promised Land. Matt Damon, 42, also stars in the film and co-wrote the script with Krasinski.
"I just drove to his house every weekend. He wins by default with four little girls, and so that's a very busy house that I have to go to him," Krasinski explained of working with the star. "We actually wrote with children climbing all over him, and he was doing bath time and dinner and everything, and we still got it done."
