John Krasinski Talks Academy's Effort to Increase Diversity
The 36-year-old actor was joined by Joshy star Thomas Middleditch.
John was recently asked about the Academy’s membership changes in an effort to increase diversity.
“Pushing diversity forward is not only a major step that we all need to take, but it’s a responsibility that we should be doing all around,” John told THR. “So as disappointing as I think it is to hear about the Oscars and the lack of diversity in the announcements, i think it’s a nice call to arms for the rest of our business to be talking about what movies we’re making, who we’re allowing to direct that, who we’re allowing to be in the stories we’re trying to tell.”
