After nine seasons, we're finally bidding adieu to our favorite Scranton residents as The Office ends its run.
After nine seasons, we're finally bidding adieu to our favorite Scranton residents as The Office ends its run. Not to hurt any feelings, but I have to admit I'm going to miss Jim Halpert the most. Helping with the transition is John Krasinski, who hopped on the phone with reporters to talk about his time on the set of The Office and what the show means to him (hint: a lot). Check out what he had to say about the light at the end of the tunnel for Jim and Pam's relationship, the first time he put his foot in his mouth in front of show creator Greg Daniels, and, of course, the show's final episode, which airs May 16.
- He dug his own grave before his Office audition: "I told what I thought to be a nameless person who asked if I was nervous to be auditioning that I wasn't nervous for the audition, but I was nervous for the people making [the show] because we have a tendency in America to screw up all the good shows that come over from England, and I don't see how they're gonna make this work. And he said, 'Hi, I'm Greg Daniels,' and I threw up in my mouth."
- He knows what the saga of Jim and Pam means to people: "There are some people who think they are Jim, there are some people who are looking for a Jim. Playing the Jim-Pam relationship and realizing how important it became to so many people was such an incredible honor that I think there was a small part of my brain that didn't want to let anyone down every single week. I felt like I was given a tremendous responsibility."
