Well known as the lovable Jim Halpert from “The Office,” John Krasinski is now stealing hearts as an “action guy” in “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” on Amazon Prime.
Unfortunately, it seems he hasn’t sold everyone on his new role.
During Krasinski’s interview on “The Late Show” host, Stephen Colbert questioned the actor’s “action guy” status, starting a hilarious action sequence between the two.
Now, it wasn’t all punches and one-liners. John’s “Office” co-star Ellie Kemper made a quick cameo congratulating him on his new gig, saying, “Wow, comedy and action, that’s so cool!”
The standoff ended on the rooftop with Colbert suggesting “us comedy guys will never be like them. We can’t be heroes. We’re not allowed to be sexy,” to which Krasinski responded by flashing “his abs” and throwing the late-night host off the roof. Watch the whole thing above.
Before the fight, John shared how his mom was the reason he nabbed the role of Jim Halpert. You can watch that below.
