He describes Steve Carell as “a person you want to run to and hug, and that’s exactly what Blue is”reports Slash Movie.

Beyond this touching testimony from the actor-director to his mentor, the reunion with Carell was moving. John Krasinski says:

“Even though I had a lot of fun working with him, the best part was that he arrived with the most sincere speech about how proud he was that I was making films. By reading the scenario, he said: 'I'm very honored to be part of it. I will do whatever it takes'. While I was prepared to laugh all day, I cried all day.”

A beautiful testimony of mutual admiration from the two actors who were both part of the cast which twice won the SAG Award for Best Cast in a Comedy Series.
