John Krasinski dropped a new episode of his delightful web series Some Good News on Sunday night, and yep, it’s pretty much guaranteed to put a smile on your face. The Office alum and Quiet Place filmmaker kind of broke the internet when he launched this web series out of nowhere a month ago, highlighting feel-good stories from around the globe while also offering some neat cool thing in each installment whether it’s an interview with Steve Carell or a Hamilton reunion.
Last week, Krasinski extended Some Good News to Friday, when he hosted a digital Prom 2020 for all the kids who have had their proms cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a legitimately nice thing for Krasinski to do, and he brought along a few special guests to help out.
In Some Good News episode 4, Krasinski highlighted more feel-good stories and recapped his Prom 2020 event. You get to see some of the behind-the-scenes of how it was put together, and highlights from the event itself which includes a wonderful little back-and-forth with Rainn Wilson that is very Jim/Dwight. And then Chance the Rapper shows up. And then the Jonas Brothers. And then Billie Eilish.
Again, it’s a really fun and neat thing that I think is best summed up by Billie Eilish’s brother Finneas Eilish, who notes that only a dad would care so deeply about kids missing prom that he’d put something like this together. He’s definitely not wrong.
