To return to John Krasinski, then 23 years old at the time, he auditions for The Office and the sequel becomes rather embarrassing for him and the producer. Without knowing who the man in front of him is, Krasinski launches: “I’m terrified of who is making this show because I feel like Americans are used to taking brilliant shows and ruining them.” After knowing he was telling producer Greg Daniels this, John Krasinski claims his face turned green “vomit” and that he immediately called his manager saying “I will leave now.” It seems despite everything that Daniels appreciated the personality and the honesty of the young actor.
