The show is a spin-off of a bit first introduced on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Merchant, Krasinski and Krasinski's wife, Emily Blunt, were brainstorming ideas for Krasinski's upcoming appearance on Late Night when the idea took shape.
He wrote the screenplay for the film based on David Foster Wallace's collection of short stories, played a minor role in it and also served as producer.
The film premiered on January 19, 2009 at the Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize Film critic A. Scott wrote that "though this experiment doesn't quite succeed, there's enough intelligence and insight in this movie to make it worth the attempt" while Elizabeth Weitzman from New York Daily News felt that "Krasinski deserves credit for having the ambition to adapt material as difficult as David Foster Wallace's short stories." It follows a couple searching North America for the perfect community in which to settle down and start a family. In his review, Michael Rechtshaffen from The Hollywood Reporter, said "terrific performances make this tender if slight little film worth the trip".
Krasinski also starred in the film alongside an ensemble cast of Sharlto Copley, Charlie Day, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick and Margo Martindale.In 2014, Krasinski collaborated with his Promised Land co-star and co-writer Matt Damon on the critically acclaimed 2016 drama Manchester by the Sea which starred Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams.The film was written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan and is based on an original idea of Krasinski's.Krasinski's breakthrough came when he was cast in 2004 in the NBC sitcom The Office, a remake of the successful British TV series.
In the series, a mockumentary about life at a mid-sized paper supply company, he played the role of Jim Halpert, an intelligent and mild-mannered sales representative and, in later seasons, co-manager of the paper distribution company Dunder Mifflin in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
The film follows two corporate salespeople who visit a rural town in an attempt to buy drilling rights from the local residents and was directed by Gus Van Sant.
