About John Krasinski
John Krasinski’s name became synonymous with Jim Halpert The Office’s a slightly sardonic, adorably lovesick male. Since the show came to an end, the actor successfully transitioned in o not just starring in movies, but taking lead roles, and he has even successfully become a writer and a director.
Krasinski is now a force to be reckoned with at the box office, with the success of his feature film, A Quiet Place, which is something that was not to be expected after his role in The Office came to an end. The actor has proven himself to be a one man band, being able to write, direct, and produce his own material, as well as star in the movies too! Not to mention husband to British beauty, Emily Blunt.
Krasinski got off to a slow start with earnings of only $20,000 per episode for the show’s first three seasons of The Office. After season four however his earnings went as high as an estimated $100,000 per episode. He was also enjoying his work, he has said that “each cast member brings their own vibe and antics to the set. You’re constantly surrounded by fun loving people who can make you laugh in their own way.”
Outside of becoming famous of TV. Krasinski has also appeared in a number of box office hits, like A Quiet Place which grossed over an estimated $340 million worldwide. He directed, co-wrote and starred in the movie.
John Krasinski starred in The Office: An American Workplace for all nine seasons, playing the romantic lead and being the subject of the token “will they, won’t they” relationship in the TV show.
The actor has also produced and directed episodes of the show that happen to be some of the fans’ favorite episodes. For the final two seasons, Krasinski took up the mantle of being the lead actor after Steve Carell retired his iconic role as Michael Scott. For viewership, the show peaked dead in the middle of it’s run, with the fifth season reaching nine million viewers, though every season enjoyed a high amount of viewers from beginning to end. The series received a total of 42 Emmy Awards.
Though his leading roles in movies prior to the end of The Office underperformed at the box office, his post-The Officestarring roles have performed outrageously well. The actor turned in terrific leading performances and worked with some of the most acclaimed directors working today in the 2010s movies 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, Detroit, and A Quiet Place. The actor has also lent his voice to a considerable amount of hugely profitable animated movies including Shrek The Third, Monsters vs. Aliens, Monsters University, and more.
Krasinski currently plays the titular role in the Amazon Prime series, Jack Ryan, which is based on the popular Tom Clancy novels, and he even serves as producer on the show too.
If all that wasn’t enough, Krasinski is now producing Some Good News, a web series on YouTube that the actor created, produces, and hosts.
In the final run of the show, Krasinski was earning an estimated $125,000 per episode of The Office, and considering there’s roughly 25 episodes per season, that’s more than three million dollars per season. As the actor had a hand in producing and directing several episodes, it’s likely that Krasinski saw even more than that figure and might even receive money from syndication sales of the show.
It isn’t just from starring in movies and TV shows that has helped the actor reach his enormous net worth.
Krasinski is the founder of the production company Sunday Night Production, which produces extremely successful television comedies such as Dream Corp LLC., an absurdist comedy aired on Adult Swim, and Lip Sync Battle, the shockingly popular reality where two celebrities compete against each other by seeing who can lip syncing to their favorite songs better. The show was co-created by Krasinski and Stephen Marchant, who worked with Krasinski during the writing process of The Office.
It is unclear how much money the actor made from his directorial effort, A Quiet Place, but considering how Krasinski not only directed it, but starred in it, and even executive produced it (meaning he and his production company put up most of the budget,) It has to be on the high end of seven figures. Krasinski’s would likely have received a percentage of the box office gross, which would be a huge payout as the movie made over $350.3 million.
There’s no doubt that the sequel will financially reward him even more as the success of the first movie was based on word of mouth. Now that the series is established, the sequel will surely rake in much more than its predecessor.
In the eyes of America, Krasinski can do no wrong. He is America’s sweetheart. He is tall, dark, and handsome, and even has a sense of humor. The actor is almost too perfect. Krasinski is charming and humble, as he is on record as saying that no actor should feel like they deserve the success.
“Trophies and medals have never meant much to me. I’ve had amazing experiences, which let you feel like you’ve accomplished something,” Krasinski has said.
It is his charm that apparently caught the eye of George Clooney who cast Krasinski in the movie Leatherheads.
Even more humbling is that Krasinski does not feel the need to take more serious roles to distance himself from the comedic role he played for nine years, like many actors do in that situation (like his co-star Steve Carell.) You can find Krasinski all over TV making a fool of himself on late night shows and having dance-offs with his wife, which has introduced him to bigger audiences than ever.
John Krasinski was in the running to play Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After the role went to Chris Evans and made dozens of millions for every MCU movie he starred in Krasinski didn’t miss out too much, has he has made an extremely successful and lucrative living.
Krasinski has a great relationship with Amazon as he not only executive produces Jack Ryan, but he also executive produced the multi award winning Manchester by The Sea, which is most well known for Casey Affleck’s Oscar winning performance in the lead role. Though it only had a limited release in the cinema before it subsequently went straight on to the streaming service Amazon Prime, the movie still made an amazing $79 million in its short run.
It is well documented that Krasinki’s wife is the English actor Emily Blunt, who became a movie star years before Krasinski. It is also well known that not only does the power couple have a great relationship, but they also have a great working partnership. Krasinski directed his wife in the horror movie A Quiet Place, to which he also co-starred. Everybody involved in the making of the movie must have been surprised by the movie’s success as it had the low budget of just $17 million.
Krasinski’s Total Net Worth
While John Krasinski only earned $20,000 per episode for seasons one through three of The Office, he earned $100,000 per episode from season four onwards. He has also earned major sums from his film roles and from TV series, like Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan.
Overall, it is estimated that Krasinski has earned career income of around $110 million dollars. That includes his work as a producer, writer and a director, as well as his other behind the scenes work like working on soundtracks, combined with all the appearances that he has made as himself, including in advertising.
After tax, it is estimated that Krasinski’s career earnings are at around $59.4 million, having paid $50.6 million dollars (46%) in taxes. That is, having lived and worked between Los Angeles and New York but mostly having paid taxes on his earnings in the state of California.
John Krasinski married Emily Blunt in 2010 and they remain together. They have two children together, Hazel and Violet. In his personal life Krasinski has seemed of balanced demeanor and likely kept his financials in order.
In real estate, he and his wife Emily sold a property to Kendall Jenner in the Hollywood Hills, for $6.5 million in 2016. They then relocated to Brooklyn, where they purchased a 6-bedroom townhouse for $6 million. They then invested over $250,000 on renovations that same year. In 2017, they sold a 5-acre property in Ojai, California for $2.4 million. Then in 2018 they sold their Brooklyn townhouse for $6.5 million but stayed in Brooklyn, buying one entire level of a Brooklyn condominium for $11 million dollars.
In his other investments it is likely that Krasinski has earned more. It seems that he may not have earned anything on his property acquisitions yet at all, after factoring in capital gains tax that is. However, he is estimated to have earned around $4-5 million dollars from his other investments, but also spent $2-3 million dollars of his career earnings as well. Overall, that makes John Krasinski’s net worth about $60 million dollars.
Though the four time Emmy Award winning actor rose to fame by starring in the most successful American adaption of a British comedy of all time, it is due to his expert production skills and business mindset that John Krasinski has an estimated net worth of $60 million. Not only that, but the actor has a combined net worth of over $100 million with his wife, Emily Blunt. Krasinski remained busy in 2021 as season three of Dream Corp LLC was in its final stages of production.
Following that, A Quiet Place II was released in May 2021, which he directed, wrote, and produced.
