Matt Damon: John Krasinski is the Next George Clooney!
Later in the day, the 42-year-old actor signed autographs for fans after landing at LAX airport in Los Angeles.
Matt recently praised his Promised Land co-writer John Krasinski.
“He’s just a really talented guy and people don’t even (know it yet),” Matt said on the Today show. “I knew him from The Office and was a fan of his and the show, but the scope and breadth of his talent is so much more vast than that and as I got to know him I really wanted to work with him.”
“It’s kind of similar to when I met George Clooney years and years ago and everybody knew him from ER,” he added. “But Steven Soderbergh did a movie with him and instantly formed a company with him and everybody in Hollywood was going, ‘What is Steven Soderbergh doing forming a company with the guy from ER?’ What Steven knew is what George was capable of and I think the same is true for John.”
