John Krasinski joins Ginnifer Goodwin in Something Borrowed
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Fresh off the erroneous news that he was in the lead for Captain America, John Krasinski has signed on to star in the upcoming romantic comedy SOMETHING BORROWED. The Office actor will star with Ginnifer Goodwin, who signed on to the film in early February. The film is about a 30-something NYC lawyer (Goodwin) that falls for her best friend’s fiancee. The film will be directed by Luke Greenfield and is based on the series of novels by Emily Giffin.
You might be thinking that Krasinski is going to be playing the fiancee, but you’d be wrong. Krasinski actually signed on for two movies in this series and in the first one, he’ll be playing Goodwin’s best friend and confidant. In the second, his role will develop into the main lead. I think this is a risky endeavor for Alcon productions as Goodwin is less than a proven talent to carry a film, let alone an entire series of films. As for Krasinski, this is a bit of a letdown considering we were talking about him becoming Captain America.
