John Krasinski Talks Academy's Effort to Increase Diversity

John Krasinski smiles for the cameras while attending a panel discussion at the Cinema Cafe held during the 2016 Sundance Film Festival on Sunday (January 24) in Park City, UT.

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.”

Also pictured below: John catches up with The Hollars co-star Charlie Day the day before at the Eddie Bauer Adventure House.

FYI: Thomas is wearing an Original Penguin outfit.
