In a film career that has spanned 15 years, Newton native John Krasinski has yet to evolve into a consistent leading man. Even his most famous role, as Jim Halpert on NBC’s The Office, is a sidekick to Acton native Steve Carell’s clueless boss Michael Scott.
His newest role, however, puts him squarely in action-hero Mark Wahlberg territory: he plays a Navy Seal tasked with defending an American diplomatic compound in Michael Bay’s new film, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, which hits theaters Friday.
That said, not every actor needs to be a Mark Wahlberg, and throughout his career, Krasinski has added quite a bit to films in a secondary role.
With that in mind, here is every John Krasinski movie ranked from worst to best, based on the ratings of critic aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes.
