Born John Burke Krasinski on October 20, 1979, in Newton, Massachusetts, he shot to fame with his amiable turn on the American version of the popular TV series The Office. Even though he took a playwriting degree with honors from Rhode Island's Brown University in 2001, Krasinski quickly turned to acting. He made his beginnings as an actor in New York, where he initially found work in TV commercials. Later on, Krasinski appeared in small roles both on TV and in movies, eventually landing the part of Jim Halpert on NBC's hit comedy The Office (2005-2013). With his turn as the bright and yet beleaguered Jim Halpert, John Krasinski won the fancy of both viewers and critics alike thanks to his one-of-a-kind facial expressions and likable boyish antics. With a career that was already off and running, he easily landed feature roles in popular movies like License to Wed (2007, with Robin Williams), Jarhead (2005, starring Jake Gyllenhaal),Dreamgirls (2006, starring Jennifer Hudson) and Away We Go (2009). Whereas the big screen parts in Leatherheads (2007), Monsters vs. Aliens (2009) and Something Borrowed (2011), only boosted his profile as a performer. It was in 2009 that he branched out into writing and directing with Brief Interviews with Hideous Men and continued to helm other film projects like The Promised Land in 2012. Over the years, John Krasinski has proved over and over again to possess skills to work both as an actor and director making his Everyman charm to charm a much wider audience.
