LOS ANGELES, March 31 (UPI) -- Hollywood actor John Krasinski said he is thrilled to be back at work on "The Office" following the Writers Guild of America strike, which shut down production.
"I'm very, very excited to be back in 'The Office.' .... Coming back from a hiatus in the summer, you just sort of say: 'How is everybody?' and 'How was your summer?'" Krasinski said while promoting his new big-screen romantic comedy "Leatherheads."
"But coming back to the show this time, after being forced to have a hiatus, it's great to be back where everybody's got a real new appreciation for what we're doing," he explained. "I mean, acting and being on a crew like this and being in the entertainment industry, but especially being on this show. Because when you're working day in and day out, it's very easy to sort of get into that place of, 'Oh, it's just a job.' And it's not a job at all. It's a fantasy. It's not a real 9-to-5. It's good to be back."
