Well, judging by how some followers of The Office reacted to it, maybe secretly is the improper phrase. John Krasinski played Jim Halpert all through the whole lot of The Office, however his star started rising fairly early on and the actor had quite a few roles in feature-films.

In Andy Greene’s e-book “The Office: The Untold Story of the Greatest Sitcom of the 2000s” (h/t Collider), The Office’s hairstylist Kim Ferry recounted how creator/showrunner Greg Daniels initially did not need Krasinski to chop his hair, however Krasinski reached out to Ferry for help.

It would have meant reducing his hair right into a 1920s coiffure. But continuity-wise and contractually-wise, actors are obligated to maintain their hair how it’s for a series except they get producer approval, after all. But it could have been reducing his hair tremendous quick, which might imply eliminating the wings on the side and his lengthy hair. He came to me and stated, ‘Could we do a wig?’ He went to speak to them and stated, ‘I actually need to do that challenge.’ And they have been like, ‘I feel it could be apparent that it was a wig.’ Greg actually felt prefer it won’t seem like him.

John Krasinski had Ferry make a wig for him in secret and deliberate to speak to the producers before revealing the existence of the hairpiece. Ferry defined how she walked into Greg Daniel’s workplace and noticed Krasinski talking with Daniels, all whereas the wig sat on Daniel’s desk. “John informed me later that Greg stated to him, ‘John, I’ll know if it’s a wig. You can’t faux that type of factor,’” Ferry recounted. “As he’s observing him with the wig on. And then John’s like, ‘Really? I don’t suppose you’ll,’ and he takes it off right in entrance of him.’ And then Greg stated, ‘You win, I offer you full permission to put on the wig.’ When I came in [Greg] stated to me, ‘You guys have numerous balls.’ For a minute I actually thought I used to be going to get fired.” Although Greg Daniel’s was fooled in by John Krasinski’s wig in individual, it appears that evidently followers of The Office weren’t as they’ve regularly introduced up simply how unusual his hair appears to be like in the third season.

John Krasinski will subsequent be seen in A QUIET PLACE: PART II, which is at present slated to hit theaters on September 4, 2020.
