John Krasinski is no stranger to changing up his look for a role. The actor has gone from short hair to a full beard for his roles in films like A Quiet Place and Jack Ryan. But it turns out that he has been wearing a wig for a much longer time than most people know.

According to reports, Krasinski was required to cut his hair short for the 2008 sports comedy Leatherheads. However, showrunner Greg Daniels did not think that the look would suit Jim Halpert, the character Krasinski was playing on the hit show The Office. That’s why Krasinski embarked on a top-secret project by actually donning a wig during the filming of season 3.

Krasinski was able to keep the wig a secret for many years, until he finally revealed the truth in an interview with Conan O’Brien in 2018. He explained that the wig was made of human hair and was styled to match his natural hair. He also said that the wig was surprisingly comfortable and he was able to wear it for up to 12 hours at a time.

Krasinski’s wig was a great success and it allowed him to keep playing the beloved character of Jim Halpert for the rest of the show’s run. It also allowed him to continue to take on roles that required him to change his look, such as his recent role in A Quiet Place.

Krasinski’s wig is a testament to his commitment to his craft and his willingness to go the extra mile for a role. It’s no wonder that he has become one of the most beloved actors in Hollywood.
