Charismatic and immensely appealing, the ever-versatile JOHN KRASINKSI

Currently, Krasinski portrays sales rep Jim Halpert on NBC’s hit comedy The
Office, part of the network’s “Must See TV” lineup on Thursday nights. The show won

coping with a recent breakup by conducting probing and revealing interviews with
various men. The illustrious cast also includes Bobby Cannavale, Josh Charles, Dominic
