John Krasinksi: My Movie Career Didn't Make Me Too Big For 'The Office'
The Office is coming to an end in a few weeks after nine seasons on the air where we came to love and learn about the employees of Dunder Mifflin.
And during a recent set visit, OK! spoke to the cast of the hit NBC show to find out how they were feeling as they got ready to say goodbye.
John Krasinski is one of the many actors on the show that have gone on to create great movie careers but says his co-stars are "honored" to be a part of the TV series and no one ever got too big for the long-running show.
"I don't think I ever felt a moment of anybody feeling like it was an opportunity for bigger things, that if bigger things came, great, and we would all fully support it," John explained.
"But to come back was the real treat and the real goal, and I've felt more honored to be a part of this show than anything else I've done, and I feel like that's the way the producers and the studio's been the whole time. NBC and the producers have really acknowledged that we want to try new things, and so when there's little overlaps here, like weeks, they do everything they can to make it happen.
"For the most part, it worked out really well because we're willing to make it work on our end, too, and come shoot two days and fly back to different places or whatever. This is something that you make a priority, period."
The Leatherheads star also recently said that being a part of The Office put him in the position where he met his wife Emily Blunt which he would always be thankful for. The couple met in 2008 and then tied the knot at George Clooney's Italian villa in 2010.
Additionally, show creator Greg Daniels hinted that he would be open to doing an Office movie.
"We have considered that. I think we’ll have to finish this and let everybody decompress, Greg said.
"I’m sure there’ll be a maximal moment to do an Office movie in terms of the cast being the most ready to do a movie. I think they’ll probably do movies with other characters to show off their other sides first."
The Office airs Thursdays at 9/8c on NBC.
