Matt Damon: 'John Krasinski is the next George Clooney'

Post by silly girl on Tue Dec 04 2012, 20:37

I saw him say this on the Today show this morning but this is a good recap:


The Oscar winner has grown close to Krasinski since working with his actress wife Emily Blunt on 2011's The Adjustment Bureau, and they recently sat down to write the screenplay for the drama Promised Land together.

And Damon was so impressed with the 33 year old's work, he insists Krasinski - who is best known for his role on the small screen comedy - has what it takes to follow in the footsteps of TV star-turned-movie icon Clooney, who first found fame on medical series ER.

Damon tells U.S. breakfast show Today, "He's just a really talented guy and people don't even (know it yet). I knew him from The Office and was a fan of his and the show, but the scope and breadth of his talent is so much more vast than that and as I got to know him I really wanted to work with him...

"It's kind of similar to when I met George Clooney years and years ago and everybody knew him from... ER. But Steven Soderbergh did a movie with him (Ocean's Eleven) and instantly formed a company with him and everybody in Hollywood was going, 'What is Steven Soderbergh doing forming a company with the guy from ER?' What Steven knew is what... George was capable of and I think the same is true for John."

I don't think he meant that John K is like GC in the respect to looks, I will try to find video but I think MD meant that there is more to JK than just a TV show. More of a film career thing than a looks thing.

Oh puhhhleeze, no one even knows John Krasinski compared to Clooney. Not everyone watches The Office, or that much TV at all compared to yesteryear. I just don't see that future stardom with John. The "guy from ER" was much more recognizable if Matt got his facts straight. ER was a HUGE hit!!

Can't see the interview but I would assume Matt means in the all american guy, humble from middle America kind of way like George. And the "in a beloved fan favourite on screen tv couple" way. I don't think (or at least I haven't seen) any work of John's that is dramatic or different from the roles on The Office or in Leatherheads. I can't recall him stepping outside the romantic comedies and comedy genres.

George's role was heart throb and smart doctor on TV that was a major hit. John's role was dufus on a comedy. No comparison. Matt's probably smoking something with his la la land comments or just wants to promote his bud.

I don't think it is a role comparison. I think MD meant that JK is more than some actor on a sitcom but that he wants to write and produce and maybe direct in his future. Same as GC was more than an actor on a TV show he wanted more out of his career. Again I don't think it is comparison of the role's they played.

John Krasinski may go the path Matt Damon suggests but so far he is a nobody related to fame. LEAVING the show ER George Clooney had tons of fame, so we shall see. George leveraged that fame into all those next projects. And the rest is history. I don't see the next George Clooney thought being accurate at all at this stage for John. He will need to accomplish a lot more than just The Office. Hollywood and TV are all about breaks, mixed in with a little bit of luck.
