New Film

John Krasinski is mining gold from his days on “The Office.”

Krasinski and Ryan Reynolds have unveiled a fresh teaser for their forthcoming film, “IF,” which also features Randall Park. In the teaser, Park assumes the role of Krasinski, reminiscent of the Season 9 episode “Andy’s Ancestry” from the NBC series. Notably, Park recreates Jim Halpert, played by Krasinski. In the mentioned episode, Krasinski and Jenna Fischer’s Pam enlist Park’s Steve to impersonate Jim as part of a prank on Rainn Wilson’s Dwight. Throughout the episode, the trio engages in elaborate schemes to prank Wilson’s character.

The “IF” teaser revisits the old joke, with Park once again declaring he is Krasinski. You’re not John Krasinski. You’re Randall Park,” Reynolds tells him.

“Uh, Ryan, I know it’s been a while since we shot, but we spent like four months together, like 10-hour days,” Park says.

Reynolds quips, “Ten-hour days? The genuine John Krasinski is aware that I only put in four hours a day.”

The forthcoming film “IF,” penned and directed by Krasinski, revolves around a young girl facing challenges, who starts witnessing the manifestation of everyone’s imaginary companions.

Krasinski’s ex-“The Office” colleague Steve Carrell lends his voice to one of the companions.

The cast also features Emily Blunt, Jon Stewart, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Matt Damon, Maya Rudolph, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Meloni, Richard Jenkins, Awkwafina, and Louis Gossett Jr.

The film is scheduled for release in May.
