“They wouldn’t do it without you,” DeGeneres reassured the actor, there to promote his directorial efforts on upcoming horror film The Quiet Place, which he stars in alongside wife Emily Blunt.
“Well, it looks like they are. I haven’t gotten a call yet,” Krasinski reiterated. “I was just looking for a phone. Imagine if they were like, ‘Will you?’ And I’m like, ‘Let’s suit up.'”
But all hope of seeing Jim and Pam (played by Jenna Fischer) back together isn’t completely lost. When DeGeneres asked Krasinski if he’d be ready to answer the call, should his old network come calling, his answer was a resounding yes.
“Oh my god, are you kidding? I’d love to get that gang back together,” he told her.
