I became a fan of John Krasinski after watching him in a few episodes of The Office – 2005 – 2013. Ironically, l couldn’t stand the British version and preferred the American series and that’s how l became aware of him. However it wasn’t until l saw him properly in the 2008 film , Leatherheads that l started to really appreciate his ability. Been a fan ever since, and so below are my personal Top 10 of his works.

Now the former U.S. Marine is featured in an episodic series for the first time, with John Krasinski portraying Ryan in this Amazon original thriller that centers on Ryan as an up-and-coming CIA analyst.

  1. Oh dear, oh dear – Here I am out of the entertainment loop yet again, or perhaps I should say still LOL – I’ve never heard of the guy!

  2. I’ve seen a few of the early episodes of The Office, and I liked him in that.

    I’ve seen The Wind Rises, but I prefer Japanese audio and subtitles. I prefer ALL films in their original language, and subtitles 🤷🏼‍♀️

    I like him okay. I’m not a HUGE fan.🤷🏼‍♀️
