When the press tries to ‘’Expose the Heretic!’’
For performers in Hollywood, it has long been the case that they strive to avoid being typecast. When it comes to John Krasinski he faced that very real challenge once the beloved comedy series ‘’The Office’’ ended its run after nine seasons. His role as Jim Halpert was a fixture and he faced a real challenge in getting audiences after to accept him as any other character.
This was made even tougher when, even seven years after the series closed, it is by far the most popular streaming option on Netflix. One effort to distinguish Krasinski has seen him having taken on some roles with a strong military foundation. He appeared in the Michael Bay true-life recreation ‘’13 Hours’’, and he is in the titular role of the Amazon series based on the Tom Clancy character ‘’Jack Ryan’’. Along with this, he has branched off successfully into directing, so he has done well to differentiate from his most famous work.
