Is John Krasinski from the Office the new Fletch?
I would be very skeptical of the idea of a new Fletch movie. But the idea that John Krasinski from "The Office" as the lead character is a very appealing idea. The guy is loved by all & if anyone should be the new "Fletch", it's Johnny boy!
The Office star John Krasinki is the hot favorite to play Irwin 'Fletch' Fletcher in a new adaptation of Gregory McDonald's series of novels. A number of actors have been considered as successors to Chevy Chase - who played Fletch in two 1980s films - including Jason Lee, Ryan Reynolds and most recently Joshua Jackson.
But Krasinki admits he is in the running for the role. He tells MTV News, "My name was tossed around a little bit for the role, and it's something that (I might consider). I have no idea (if they'll cast me). I've been shooting a movie down in North Carolina, so I've kind of lost touch with who (else) is in the running. I read the script, and it is hilarious. It's just one of those things that is so terrifying, to step up and be in a role that was done so perfectly. I mean, Chevy Chase not only created that role, but he did it pretty damn well. So (playing that character) is a scary situation. I don't know what's going on with it right now, but I am sure whoever does it will be fantastic. You just have to have some guts to do that."-StarPulse
