Before rising to Hollywood stardom, John Krasinski made his first stage appearance in a 6th-grade school production of "Annie" as Daddy Warbucks.

Novak when they were high school seniors, not knowing that they would in the future reunite as co-stars on the NBC sitcom "The Office". After graduating from Brown University in 2001, he moved to New York to pursue an acting career. There he worked as a waiter and at the same time also appeared in commercials in addition to landing guest spots on television shows and doing readings of off-Broadway plays.

Krasinski began to earn notice and positive reviews after starring as Jim Halpert on comedy series "The Office". The role earned him Screen Actors Guild Award nominations for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series for four consecutive years (2006 - 2009). He, in fact, won the first two nods. During his time on the series, he also landed guest spots on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation", "Without a Trace", and "Arrested Development".
