Charismatic and immensely appealing, the ever-versatile JOHN KRASINKSI (Carter Rutherford) is poised to become one of this generation’s brightest leading men.

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 the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2006, the SAG Award for Outstanding Ensemble in a Comedy Series in 2007 and 2008, and was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series—Musical or Comedy and an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2007.

Also a gifted writer, John adapted the David Foster Wallace book “Brief Interviews with Hideous Men” and directed his own adaptation in an independently financed feature last fall. The film stars Julianne Nicholson as a graduate student who is coping with a recent breakup by conducting probing and revealing interviews with various men. The illustrious cast also includes Bobby Cannavale, Josh Charles, Dominic Cooper, Timothy Hutton, Christopher Meloni, Max Minghella, Lou Taylor Pucci and Ben Shenkman among others.

Krasinski’s feature film credits include Shrek the Third; Ken Kwapis’ License to Wed; Gregg Araki’s Smiley Face; Christopher Guest’s For Your Consideration; Nancy Meyers’ The Holiday; Bill Condon’s Dreamgirls and Kinsey; Sam Mendes’ Jarhead, starring Jake Gyllenhaal; Duane Hopwood; and the animated film Doogal, in which Krasinski voiced three characters.

Among Krasinski’s additional television credits are appearances on NBC’s Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Ed and Without a Trace.

Krasinski graduated from Brown University as an honors playwright and later studied at the National Theater Institute. Born and raised in Newton, Massachusetts, Krasinski currently resides in Los Angeles.
