With a homemade sign crafted by his daughters hanging behind him, John Krasinski — known for his roles in “The Office” and his Amazon Prime series “Jack Ryan” — is bringing the internet a little good news.
And it hasn’t come soon enough.
The 40-year-old actor said he needed some uplifting content, so he asked his Twitter followers to share good news stories with him. He received so many, he decided to start a YouTube show called “SGN,” which stands for “Some Good News.”
“For years now, I’ve been wondering, why is there not a news show dedicated entirely to good news?” explained Krasinski. “Well, desperately seeking my fix somewhere else, I reached out to all of you this week, asking — nay, begging — for some good news.”
“And boy, did you deliver,” he continued. “After reading those replies and the incredibly heartwarming stories that came with them, I thought, ‘All right. Enough is enough, world. Why not us? Why not now?’ So, ladies and gentlemen, this is your fault, and this is ‘SGN.’ I’m John Krasinski, and if it isn’t clear yet, I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing.”
Clearly inspired by the trappings of any news broadcast, a suit-clad Krasinski sat at a desk shuffling papers as he shifted between two cameras capturing different angles as he worked his way through a buffet of positive headlines.
Krasinski also celebrated the 15th anniversary of “The Office” by calling up his former costar Steve Carrell. And for this “Office” fan, nothing could have been better.
“Hopefully one day we just get to reunite as people, and all just get to say hi,” he told Carrell. “I miss you a ton, man. … Boy, are you good news.”
