“The Office” star John Krasinski is joining Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin, and Steve Martin in Nancy Meyers upcoming untitled film. Since it has no title, I will now take this opportunity to provide one: Fuck Force Five. You’re welcome, Nancy.
Since Variety provided no detail about who anyone is playing, I guess it’s up to me to deduce. John Krasinski will play the young, handsome guy that the Meryl Streep character wants but is weary of the taboo of a late-middle-aged woman dating such a younger man. Martin will play the man Meryl will eventually turn to and love, putting away childish things like Krasinski. Baldwin will play Snarlax, Devourer of Souls. The film takes a radical turn in the third act.
Back to Krasinski, he’ll next be seen in Sam Mendes’ “Away We Go” this June. Krasinski’s adaptation of David Foster Wallace’s “Brief Interviews with Hideous Men”, which premiered at Sundance, has yet to find a distributor.
