Actor John Krasinski has been playing cupid for his "The Office" co-stars B.J. Novak and Mindy Kaling after helping to reignite the former couple's romance. Novak and Kaling split in 2008 but sparked rumors they had rekindled their relationship after they were spotted enjoying a night out in Hollywood together just before Christmas, December 2009.
And the reunited couple has Krasinski to thank for bringing them back together after he tricked his pals by recruiting them to help plan his upcoming wedding to Emily Blunt. A source tells the National Enquirer, "(Krasinksi got them together) under the guise of planning his wedding and honeymoon. Before too long, the old spark reignited and the two were dating again."
"As B.J.'s best friend, John knew his pal never really got over Mindy. They dated for a long while but broke up over a year ago because of the difficulty of mixing work and romance. (But) they're in love again."
