Krasinski played the lovable Jim Halpert on the hugely successful NBC series. But it appears that he’s been kept in the dark about a potential reboot.
He was appearing on Ellen when the host asked him whether he had heard anything about it.
“I did hear that on the internet. Guess who didn’t get a call? Me.".
“What does that say? NBC’s like, ‘You know who we didn’t like? Jim.'”
“They wouldn’t do it without you,” said Ellen.
“Well, it looks like they are. I haven’t gotten a call yet.”

In December the Hollywood Reporter reported that NBC were planning a reboot of the hugely successful comedy series. Sources said that Steve Carell wouldn’t feature but they hoped that other familiar faces would return.
Ellen also used the opportunity to play one of her scare pranks on Krasinski. Check it out here.
