While filming Season 3 of the hit series, he was also set to star in the 2008 movie Leatherheads, which would require him to cut his hair.

However, Office showrunner Greg Daniels rejected his request to wear a wig for the six remaining episodes that they still needed to film. And so, he came up with a plan with Kim Ferry, the show’s hairstylist.

“He paid for the wig — a human hair wig made by a friend of mine, Natascha Ladek, who’s the best wig maker in town. She came in to do a secret little fitting for him, she made the wig, we got it, and it looked amazing. [Krasinski] came in a little later that day, and I had the wig hidden in a little secret spot ready for him. When it was just him and I, I put it on him, and then he went out and filmed,” she revealed to Mashable.

He then ended up driving over to the showrunner’s office after filming in order to convince him that the wig worked and that he could star in Leatherheads.

“I very crazily and nervously grabbed my bag and jumped in my car,” she explained.

B.J. Novak approached her and said “Hey Kim, is this about John‘s wig? Well, I’ve gotta tell you…I just saw John and I feel like we’re gonna know if it’s a wig or not.”

“I’m thinking like, ‘Uh huh. He doesn’t know John‘s wearing [the wig] right now,’” she said.

“The first thing Greg said was, ‘Wow. You guys have balls,’ and then goes, ‘But I have to say I didn’t see that coming.’”

Greg kept saying, ‘No! I would know if you’re wearing a wig.’ So John leaned over the desk and said, ‘No I don’t think you would.’ That’s when he ripped it off and shut it down, and we got to do the wig. It was worth it cause he really wanted to do that movie and I didn’t want to disappoint him. It was nerve-wracking, but it turned out okay. Thank God.”

John Krasinski Reveals The Reasons Behind His Decision To Sell 'Some Good News' To CBS

Some Good News made even more headlines last week when host John Krasinski sold the webseries to ViacomCBS.

This caused a lot of fans to voice their disappointment in the 40-year-old actor for his decision to “sell out” to a bigger entity instead of continuing the show on his own on a free platform.

However, John‘s reason to sell the show wasn’t based in money, but was based in how busy he was going to be once production on his projects picked back up after quarantine.

“Well it’s funny, it was one of those things where I was only planning on doing eight of them during quarantine, because I have these other things that I’m going to be having to do very soon like Jack Ryan and all this other stuff,” John explained to former co-star Rainn Wilson on his “Hey There, Human” broadcast.

He added, “But more than that, it was something that writing, directing, and producing with a couple of my friends was so much [that] I knew it wouldn’t be sustainable with my prior commitments.”

John continued that the CBS deal came at the perfect time for him and for the show.

“I knew the two options were always gonna be that I leave it off with eight in my office — which I would love to keep doing this show from my office forever, [but] it just wasn’t sustainable,” he says. “So I’d need a partner coming on. And it’s funny, in the first episode I said, ‘Why isn’t there a news show dedicated entirely to good news?’ and now we have one of the biggest news programs in America, CBS News, saying that they want to make it part of their permanent news cycle, which is insane.”

“The fact that we were able to accomplish that—in eight weeks it went from not existing to now being on one of these huge news networks—is honestly one of the most amazing honors I’ve ever been able to pull off. And again, it was all due to the community and to the people.”

Over the eight episodes, John hosted a reunion of The Office, held a prom, and even had Brad Pitt report the weather forecast.

Fans Express Concerns About John Krasinski Selling 'Some Good News' to ViacomCBS

John Krasinski tearfully signed off as the host of Some Good News, his weekly feel-good webseries that launched during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

The 40-year-old star told fans in his final broadcast that “we’re taking a break for now, but there is more to come! Stay tuned.”

Just days later, it was revealed that ViacomCBS had bought the rights to the series for television and that John would no longer host.

“Could not be more excited and proud to be partnering with CBS/Viacom to be able to bring Some Good News to so many more people!” he said in a statement.

Some fans though, were not too happy about the purchase and move to television and voiced their concerns about it on Twitter.

“So he made 8 YouTube videos comprised largely of unpaid contributions from fans, sold the brand to a major conglomerate, and isn’t even going to make it anymore?” one fan tweeted. “Just cashed out? Does this rub anyone else the wrong way, kinda?”

Another added, “I can’t believe you sold it. It’s not about the good news, it’s about the profit.”

The Some Good News Twitter account did address some of the fan concerns.

John Krasinski's 'Some Good News' Bought By ViacomCBS, But He Will No Longer Host

John Krasinski has won the hearts of his fans with his Some Good News web-series during quarantine and now the show is making the move to television!

Some Good News was licensed by ViacomCBS after a bidding war among the networks, according to THR.

Sadly, John will not continue as the host of the show, but he will still have an on-air presence.

CBS All Access, which is being rebranded this summer, will have the first window of the new episodes of Some Good News and then other ViacomCBS networks will get the second window.

“Could not be more excited and proud to be partnering with CBS/Viacom to be able to bring Some Good News to so many more people!” John said in a statement. “From the first episode, our goal was to create a news show dedicated entirely to good news. Never did I expect to be joining the ranks of such a historic news organization as CBS.”

John Krasinski's 'Some Good News' Web Show Is Taking a Break

John Krasinski is signing off the air – just for a little while anyway.

The 40-year-old actor launched his Some Good News show at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, as the country started to shut down and he announced tonight that the show would be taking a little break.

“Some Good News has always been… about YOU! SGN wants to thank each and every one of you for being a part of this story. For sending in your clips, weather reports, and art,” John wrote in the notes. “For watching, laughing, crying, dancing, and celebrating with us. There IS always GOOD in the world!”

He added, “Now, it’s time for everyone to continue to spread good news in their own ways. We’re taking a break for now, but there is more to come! Stay tuned.”

We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future of Some Good News.

John Krasinski Reveals He Has One Very Special 'The Office' Prop That Jim & Pam Fans Will Love

Whenever a television show ends, many cast members get to take a keepsake from the set and in John Krasinski‘s case, he has a lot of memorabilia from The Office.

While joining former co-stars Angela Kinsey and Jenna Fischer on their Office Ladies podcast on Wednesday (May 13), the 40-year-old actor and director listed off the number of things he has.

On top of stealing the Dunder Mifflin sign that everybody did talking heads to, John revealed that he also has the teapot that Jim gifted to Pam in the second season.

“Phil Shea [prop master] is the reason I have anything,” he shared. “He sent me a box years, like three or four years later of my bag — yeah, my satchel — my nameplate, and the teapot, bro.”

Both Jenna and Angela didn’t even know he had the teapot at all.

The Office fans will recall that Jim gives the green teapot to Pam in the Christmas episode, but before he does, he takes out a note he wrote to her. The note pops up again in season nine, when he finally gives that to her.

While the contents of the note were never told on the show, Jenna did share after the show was over that it was a note from John telling her what their time together meant to him.

If you missed it, the cast of The Office recently had a virtual reunion for a very special reason.
