It was reported a few weeks ago that ‘The US Office’ could be getting a reboot. Now John Krasinski has told Ellen that he is waiting for the call and that he would love to get the gang back together.
when asked by talk show host Ellen if he would be returning to the show if it got the go ahead he replied
“I did hear that. On the internet,” he told Ellen DeGeneres. “Guess who didn’t get a call? Me. What does that say? NBC’s like, ‘You know who we didn’t like? Jim”.
Ellen aded that “They wouldn’t do it without you,” with John adding that “Well, it looks like they are. I haven’t gotten a call yet, I was just looking for a phone. Imagine if they were like, ‘Will you?’ And I’m like, ‘Let’s suit up.'”
John who played character Jim Halbert alongside on screen wife Jenna Fisher added that if he was to get the phone call he would say yes. Replying to Ellen John said “Oh my god, are you kidding? I’d love to get that gang back together,”
Last month Jenna Fisher told reporters “I don’t know anything about The Office revival. I know as much as anyone else,” she said. “I think that’s for networks to figure out if I were to be asked, but I haven’t been approached about it. But I love Pam!”
“I think the idea of an Office revival is—I think it’s a great idea. I would be honoured to come back in any way that I’m able to”
Jerry Seinfield also Joined Ellen for a chat and when asked if there could be a possible ‘Seinfeld’ TV reboot he replied ” It’s possible” to a cheering audience.
Ellen replied with “wow”
Seinfeld and the show’s co-creator Larry David have been asked about bringing his beloved series back from the dead before. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Seinfeld said he was not interested in picking back up with the series as David then planned to do with Curb Your Enthusiasm.
In 2017, when asked whether the show would come back in any form, Seinfeld told Entertainment Tonight, “Why? Maybe it’s nice that you continue to love it instead of us tampering with something that went pretty well.”
The cast, which includes Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards, reunited for a fake Seinfeld reunion as part of an arc on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm.
