Well, it turns out if John Krasinski was asked if he’d come back to play Jim that he “would absolutely love to”! In a recent interview, when asked about a reunion he said “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. It was the first creative family I’ve ever had.”
Could this be even more proof that we might soon see a reboot of the show we all love? Maybe! During an interview with Hollywood Reporter, former NBC Entertainment chairman, Bob Greenblatt said that Greg Daniels (Creator of The Office) is interested in rebooting the series on NBC’s Peacock. In fact, he even said he has ideas for it!
So we might see a reunion with Jim but I sadly I don’t think we’ll see Michael anytime soon. In an interview this year with Esquire he said “I mean, the whole idea of that character, Michael Scott, so much of it was predicated on inappropriate behavior, A lot of what is depicted on that show is completely wrong-minded. That’s the point, you know? But I just don’t know how that would fly now. There’s a very high awareness of offensive things today—which is good, for sure. But at the same time, when you take a character like that too literally, it doesn’t really work.”
With the launch of Peacock, we might get to see an Office come back in 2020. But if not Krasinski new movie A Quiet Place 2 is hitting our screens in March!
