“Hey @TheRock remember when you pitched me ‘BROMANCING THE STONE?…And then cast my wife?…And called it JUNGLE CRUISE ? Well, you can make it up to me now! #JKbday@familyreach,” Krasinski tweeted at Johnson.
“Hey @TheEllenShow remember when you did this to me? To this day I still can’t go near coffee tables. Time to make up for it! #JKbday@familyreachhttp://venmo.com/jkbday,” he tweeted at DeGeneres.

One of the celebrities Krasinski asked to donate to Family Reach was Evans. The actor brought up that Evans won the role of Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe over Krasinski.
“Alright getting into the afternoon here and this donation train keeps a rollin! Hey @ChrisEvans remember when you robbed me of the role of Captain America?… time to pay up? #JKbday@familyreach,” he tweeted.
Evans had the perfect reply to Krasinski’s request. He replied with a gif of Krasinski playing Jim Halpert in The Office. In the gif, Jim cuts part of his tie to make Pam feel better about her veil ripping.
“There. Now we’re even,” Jim says in the gif.
