Before The Office hit the airwaves, John Krasinski’s acting resume was a little thin, to put it kindly. He had low-profile, anonymous, and uncredited roles such as “Judge’s assistant,” “Flea Club Candidate,” and “Process server.”

A gig on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in 2005 was Krasinski’s most prominent role before playing Jim Halpert on The Office from 2005 to 2013.

How much did he make from The Office?

Since John Krasinski’s acting resume was on the thin side before The Office, he wasn’t paid a ton early in the show’s run. He and co-star Jenna Fischer both earned about $20,000 per episode in the beginning. Once it proved to be a hit, Krasinski was pulling in $100,000 for each show, according to Medium.

His career after The Office

Once The Office became a TV sensation, John Krasinski started landing major roles in big-time movies.

He appeared in 2006’s The Holiday with Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, and Jack Black, among others.

He shared the screen with Robin Williams in License to Wed in 2007 and voiced Lancelot in Shrek the Third the same year.

His biggest silver screen success so far is A Quiet Place, which he starred in, wrote, directed, and produced. The movie earned $188 million in the United States on a $17 million budget, according to IMDb, so you know what that means: Sequel. The release date for the followup is May 15, 2020.

He also stars in and produces the Amazon action series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, which had a $60 million budget for the first season, according to Observer.
