John Krasinski would 'love' an 'Office' reboot

John Krasinski would love to see Dunder Mifflin re-open its doors.

The actor, who played Jim Halpert on NBC's "The Office," says he'd be interested in joining a much-rumored reboot of the long-running mockumentary series if it ever came to fruition.

"Oh my God, are you kidding?" Krasinski said during an appearance on "Ellen" on Monday. "I'd love to get that gang back together."

Krasinski cautioned, however, that nobody has contacted him about a potential revival of the series, which aired from 2005 to 2013.

Buzz about potential reboot picked up in December, when TV Line reported the peacock network was considering bringing the series back. The report at the time did not indicate which stars would return, though it stated star Steve Carell would not be involved.

BACK TO SLIDE

Krasinski is the latest member of the show's ensemble cast to express interest in returning. Jenna Fischer — who portrayed Jim's wife and co-worker, Pam Halpert — said last month that she'd love to film new episodes, but noted she also hadn't heard anything from the network.

"I would be honored to come back in any way that I'm able to. I loved playing that character," Fischer told The Hollywood Reporter. "As long as (developer and executive producer) Greg Daniels is the person in charge and the visionary behind it, then I would absolutely be up for it."

Angela Kinsley, meanwhile, told Us Weekly last October — before the TV Line report emerged — that she'd be open to returning as well.

"The Office" aired for nine seasons and centered on the employees of a fictional paper company, Dunder Mifflin, based in Scranton, Pa.

Carell played bumbling branch manager Michael Scott for the show's first seven seasons, but left "The Office" in 2011 before returning for the series finale.

He told the Daily News last June that he didn't think it was a "good idea" to bring the series back.

"Even in the best possible scenario, it's always a slight disappointment," Carell said. "I don't see any reason to slightly disappoint people who might have loved your show to begin with."
