In the meantime, he's still showing a huge amount of gratitude for the role, talking about how lucky he feels, and how he thought Clooney was just playing a joke on him.
Here are highlights from his interview with USA Today: John is pretty humble in addition to being cute and talented, but something tells us there are plenty of women out there who wouldn't mind spending some time with him.
Instead, she learned classical piano at age 5, graduated near the top of her high-school class, and studied law, religion, and philosophy at Harvard.
As if that weren’t enough, she’s been a Gap model, sung backing vocals for Maroon 5, and even dabbled in journalism.
John Krasinski stepped out to lunch with his "very good friend" Rashida Jones in LA yesterday.
We've been missing John's big smile at all the promotional events for Leatherheads this week, but hopefully he'll be joining his co-stars for the big red carpet premieres soon.
AVC: This project seemed like it was shrouded in mystery forever. But those guys are really smart and really funny, and they’ve done such a great job with The Office.
How long was it before you found out exactly what it was all about? I was on hold for this for six months, and I didn’t know much about it. If you’re gonna trust anything to anybody, I would say I’m happy to trust my career with them. [Laughs.] AVC: And now it’s on record, for whenever this show tanks your career. AVC: How is your character Ann different from The Office’s Karen?
Before the show’s première, Jones spoke with The A. Club about why her new character is nothing like Karen, her own experiences with working inside the bureaucratic system, how her parents kept her from turning into another Nicole Richie, and whether we’ve seen the last of her on The Office. I had the same level of confusion myself at the beginning.
But I feel like once the first episode airs, it’ll all be cleared up.
Plus, if The Office couldn't make him a ladies' man, maybe his new movie will help make his love life a little more interesting.
Rashida Jones didn’t really have to do anything with her life: The daughter of mega-producer Quincy Jones and actress Peggy Lipton, she was born into Hollywood royalty, and easily could have become just another club-hopping socialite.
I just really trust these guys, so I was like, “Whatever, when you figure it out, let me know.” But I didn’t really know anything about it until November. RJ: I play a nurse, and I‘m not in a love triangle.
