I was a little skeptical of the upcoming movie Everybody Loves Whales when I first heard of it back in February, but here's a reason to warm up to the project: John Krasinski has joined the cast! Krasinski will play a news reporter who breaks the story about three California gray whales that got stuck under the ice of the Arctic Circle. (Drew Barrymore is already set to play a Greenpeace activist).
While the rest of the world is still at odds regarding whether Krasinski will make a good Ethan in Something Borrowed, I'm happy to see he's branching out a little from the romantic comedies. Plus, I can totally see him with a pencil behind his ear.
