'The Office' Star John Krasinski Gets Cameron Crowe's Hawaii Project
Over the past couple weeks, the talent roster for Cameron Crowe's untitled Hawaii romantic comedy has gotten even more impressive. Initially, Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams made the film pretty enticing, and the last couple weeks has brought confirmation that Danny McBride, Jay Baruchel, Alec Baldwin and Bill Murray were also on board the Sony film which is currently in production. Now one more cast member has joined the mix with THR revealing that "The Office" series regular John Krasinski, who played Jim on every season of the NBC comedy, has landed a supporting role in the film which Crowe wrote.
For those just catching up, the film will follow a defense contractor (Cooper) who falls for an Air Force pilot (Stone) after he's assigned to oversee the launch of a weapons satellite from Hawaii. But the lovers decide to sabotage the launch instead. Krasinski has joined the project as a military man married to McAdams, who is playing Cooper's ex-wife. And now we get a slightly better picture of how some of the story will play out. Krasinski is really digging into features after making films like Away We Go, Leatherheads, Something Borrowed and Promised Land (with Crowe's We Bought a Zoo star Matt Damon) in between seasons of "The Office." But now that the show is finished, he has much more time to partake in big screen projects.
