John Krasinski Would 'Absolutely Love' To Do The Office US Reunion
| Last updated
It's been more than six years since we said goodbye to the team at the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company from the infamous The Office US TV show.
All the characters have since gone on to do bigger and better things and that's totally okay. But, as with all cult favourite shows, there have been calls for a massive reunion show with the original cast.
The idea certainly has John Krasinski's support.
The actor, who played salesman Jim Halpert, said he would ab-so-lutely be down for a cheeky reunion special, as long as everyone else was.
When asked by Esquire about the idea, he replied with: "The Office was absolutely everything to me. I mean, it is my beginning and my end. I'm pretty sure at the end of my career I'll still be known for Jim.
"That was my first experience with Hollywood. It was the first creative family I've ever had. In many ways, they will always be the most important people in that most important experience in my career.
"So yeah, if they did a reunion, I would absolutely love to do it."
Two years ago, John actually came up with an ingenious way to have a reunion special with everyone there.
He insisted that he didn't want the show to be rebooted in the same way as Will and Grace with the same cast but updated cultural jokes. But instead it would be a one or two-off episode special.
Krasinski told IndieWire: "It's one of those things where I'm sure people don't believe me when I say I would totally do it, because the truth is I would totally do it.
"I think the UK thing that I always have pitched and wanted to do is that Christmas special thing, where we do a Christmas special this year and then two years from now, or three years from now, we do another one.
"I love that idea coming back finding out where everybody is. I would totally be down for that."
That could be very appealing to anyone who's been dying to see the cast back together. The idea of a reunion has been touched on by NBC executives with differing levels of support.
Showrunner Greg Daniels told Entertainment Weekly that the show was wrapped up in such a nice bow that it could ruin everything if they brought everyone back in.
Whereas NBCU's former head of streaming Bonnie Hamme said they had plans to reboot the entire show when it leaves Netflix next year.
Who knows what will happen.
