AceShowbiz - Fans of "The Office" rejoice when it was reported that NBC was trying to reboot the hit comedy. However, it seems like %cJohn Krasinski%, who was one of the original cast members, is kept in the dark about the project.
Appearing on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", the actor/director revealed that no one approached him regarding the reboot of the series, on which he played Jim Halpert. "I did hear that. On the internet," John told %cEllen DeGeneres%.
"Guess who didn't get a call? Me," he joked. "What does that say? NBC's like, 'You know who we didn't like? Jim.' "
The host, however, told him that it might be impossible to do a reboot without him. "They wouldn't do it without you," Ellen reassured the actor, who can next be seen on Amazon's "Jack Ryan". The husband of %cEmily Blunt% responded, "Well, it looks like they are. I haven't gotten a call yet."
John didn't rule out the possibility of him reprising the role of Jim though, should he be offered. "I was just looking for a phone. Imagine if they were like, 'Will you?' And I'm like, 'Let's suit up,' " he said.
John's on-screen wife %cJenna Fischer% previously said something similar of the planned revival. "I don't know anything about 'The Office' revival. I know as much as anyone else," she said on Monday, January 8 at the Television Critics Association press tour, promoting her upcoming ABC series "Splitting Up Together". The Pam Beesly depicter added, "I don't know. I think that's for networks to figure out if I were to be asked."
Just like John, Jenna also revealed she was all down for the reboot. "I love Pam! I think the idea of an 'Office' revival is--I think it's a great idea," she said. "I would be honored to come back in any way that I'm able to. I loved playing that character."
