  1. Some of us here in the fan community of the #MCU; would love if #JohnKrasinski and #EmilyBlunt would play #Mr.Fantastic and the #InvisibleWoman. Make our dreams come true #MARVEL

  2. Wow am I ever making them procreate in my own demented fictional universe… GOOD DAY. I SAID GOOD DAY!!!

  3. I'm watching this just after seeing the quiet place trailer in theater previews, so the line about not raising the kids to speak is surprisingly ironic

  4. What if they both paid for dinner? They each did the thing when they go to the bathroom, and the waiter rang them up twice.

  5. I wouldn’t be surprised if they get divorce from their wives and get married to each other. Such chemistry btw these two. Kudos.

  6. How is it that John Krasinski can be really outgoing and really awkward at the same time? It's honestly great lmao

  7. Comedians must watch actors on talk shows trying to be comedians or trying to be funny and cringe out the entire time. Everytime I see this guy on a talk show it's cringe worthy to me, YET I'm a huge fan of his movies and the Office.

  8. "… We are raising them so they can't speak."

    And then they go on to do 'A Quiet Place', where everyone literally can't speak, haha

  9. Are we not going to talk about the best joke John made in this interview? He walked in to Under Pressure. If that's not the most Jim thing ever…

  10. I'd like to binge watch a show starting Stephen Colbert and John Krasinkski instead I'll have to settle for these interviews and season 9 episode 5 of The Office🤷‍♀️
