Jenna seems like she'd be happy being a TV star with a few supporting movie roles. Krasinski seems like he's more interested in movies, but also in directing. Or being a househuband.

May 10th 2011

D=TF, you are wise. Krasinski does need to show some range if he's going to play in the big leagues, and he's not going to show it playing in bad rom/com after bad rom/com. He needs to talk someone into giving him a juicy bad guy role or something.

I see him more as a Hanks than a Clooney, which in my book, is a good thing. The only time Clooney "acts" well is when he's playing a character like himself. Most of his roles are him being pretty, glib, smug, and kinda funny. That's being a movie star, but it's not great acting.

Or being a househuband.

Shoot if I had him, I'd keep him locked in the bedroom, too.

May 10th 2011

You presume he's good in the sack. He might be all thumbs, for all you know.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

(Whew. I am saying a lot of things...)

They are both making a lot of money from The Office and if they can get 200 episodes out (2 more seasons) they may be set for life.

Out of the two, I always felt that JK has been more ready to move on. That may stem from Jenna struggling all those years and John basically hitting a home run in his first at bat. But, from watching recent interviews, John seems a lot more receptive to sticking around for a while. I guess a string of movie flops will do that. And a lot of cash.

May 10th 2011

And a lot of cash.

I'm convinced that, rather than hire some big name to replace Carell, they are going to throw his salary at the remaining top three to convince them to stick around for two more seasons. Of Wilson, Krasinski and Fischer, Rainn is the one I think would leave first.

May 10th 2011

I was very impressed with Wilson's acting (and his range) in Super. Though I thought Krasinski was good in Away We Go, Wilson is the one who seems most to have a future away from The Office, which is strange given that Dwight is the most caricatured of their characters.

May 10th 2011

(Or, much more likely, a sort of lesser Hanks,

Colin Hanks?

May 10th 2011

He's better than Colin Hanks.

I don't know. Often it's the folks who play the craziest or most caricaturish characters that end up having the most range. John C. Reilly, Edward Norton, Alan Rickman, Sean Penn (wasn't he typecast as a surfer dude in the beginning?), Tim Curry, Alan Cummings...a lot of those people play extreme dumbed down stereotypes, but have an amazing range.

Hey, I laughed.

Aug 30th 2011

Those were funny. I especially laughed at the fact that Simon Dempsy has a Nickleback poster above his desk.

Aug 30th 2011

Dempsy sounds like a bit of a tool.

Aug 30th 2011

That is hysterical.

I am so changing someone's business cards out to say Horse Whisperer.

Aug 30th 2011

So, those were real?

Aug 30th 2011

You're not real!

Aug 30th 2011

That was my thought too. A lot of those kinds of things are hoaxes, but still funny.

Aug 30th 2011

I am so changing someone's business cards out to say Horse Whisperer.

This was my favorite. I'm still laughing.

Aug 30th 2011

Oh no, I'm sure they're fake. But it's still an awesome idea.

I saw that Matt Damon is directing and co-writing a movie with JKras. Maybe writing will be JKras' golden ticket, since acting and smoldering good looks kind of aren't.

Oct 20th 2011

smoldering good looks kind of aren't.

He may not be Russell Crowe, but I wouldn't kick him out of bed for eating crackers. That said, unless he really scores with a dramatic role soon, I think he'll end up either directing or writing or producing. He seems to enjoy the people part of it.

Oct 20th 2011

He's goofy-looking, I'm sorry. He's not ugly at all, but he looks like droopy dog. I've never understood his sexual appeal in the least.

Oct 20th 2011

I've never understood his sexual appeal in the least.

Well, for starters you're a straight man. (right?)

Oct 20th 2011

but I wouldn't kick him out of bed for eating crackers.

I'm going to use this, except I'll substitute him for her. Maybe I won't.

Oct 20th 2011

Well, for starters you're a straight man. (right?)

This is not a disqualification for recognizing the sexual appeal of a man. I can see how George Clooney or Brad Pitt would be considered "sexy". I don't want to sleep with them, but I get the appeal. Krasinski is a reasonably attractive guy, but, like DftF I've never gotten the squealing about him.

Oct 20th 2011

I can almost never recognize an attractive man, at least not a man women tell me is objectively attractive. When I point out a guy to my wife who I think might be good looking, she inevitably tells me I'm wrong. I'd suck at gay. Pun!

Oct 20th 2011

Well, for starters you're a straight man. (right?)

Wrong.
