Steve Carell to Star In Imaginary Friends Alongside John Krasinski

Actor Steve Carell recently expressed and shared his excitement for his reunion with actor John Krasinksi in their new upcoming film, Imaginary Friends. Before this reunion, the two previously starred in the immensely popular NBC sitcom, which was a remake of the British show, The Office. 

Created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the American version of the sitcom featured Carell as Michael Scott, regional manager of the Dunder Mifflin paper company. At the same time, John Krasinski played sarcastic salesman Jim Halpert. Through its nine seasons, the sitcom was a massive success as it received 42 Primetime Emmy nominations, won five times, and Carrell won a Golden Globe for his work on the show. 

Both Carell and Krasinski had huge success outside of the realm of the popular sitcom. Krasinski, although primarily known for his work on the sitcom, has also had great success in other projects as well. The actor has directed the drama-comedy film, The Hollars, which stars actors Anna Kendrick and Richard Jenkins. Krasinski has also produced A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place II, starring him and his wife, Emily Blunt. Krasinski’s most recent project is Imaginary Friends, a comedy about a man who can talk and see other people’s imaginary friends. The film will also star actors Ryan Reynolds, Fiona Shaw, Louis Gossett Jr., and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. 

Carell expressed his excitement in an interview with ET saying, “Well, I haven’t started working on the film with him yet, but I can’t wait. I’m anticipating just joy and fun. I mean, he’s the best, and he’s a great director. I’ll put him through his paces, you know? I’ll make him work for it. I might be one of those persnickety actors that don’t always agree or won’t come out of my trailer. You think you hired somebody that is your friend, but you got that wrong!”
Carell’s and Krasinski’s upcoming reunion in the new film Imaginary Friends will show how far both of their careers have come.

    Mind-Bending Movies to Watch if You Liked Inception

    One of the best (and my personal favorite) genres in movie watching is mind-bending, also called thought-provoking movies. Movies that have hidden twist and turns just subtle enough to captivate and completely alter the audience’s perception of the film are exciting and riveting! Most mind-bending movies are fast paced with high stakes, revealing little bits and pieces of the ending so subtly that by the end of the movie, the audience doesn’t know what hit them!
