Made on a budget of approximately just $20 million, A Quiet Place became one of the surprise hits of 2018. After watching the largely silent horror, however, some viewers were left puzzled about one particular aspect of the film. But luckily for them, A Quiet Place’s star and director John Krasinski has been more than happy to clear the matter up.
And Krasinski caught the acting bug at an early age, having appeared in a production of Annie in sixth grade. In high school, moreover, he branched out into writing by penning a play alongside B.J. Novak, his eventual co-star in The Office. Krasinski went on to hone his craft by majoring in theatre arts at Brown University and taking classes at Waterford, Connecticut’s National Theater Institute.
Then, after relocating to New York, Krasinski landed a position as a scriptwriting intern on Late Night with Conan O’Brien. It wasn’t until 2004 that the actor landed his big break, however, after he won the role of genial sales rep Jim Halpert in NBC’s remake of The Office. Krasinski was an ever-present in the hit show and earned roughly $100,000 every episode of the third season.
