Watch John Krasinski, Steve Carell share favorite 'Office' memories

The corona virus quarantine couldn’t stop two of our favorite stars from getting back together.

John Krasinski made his debut on Sunday new YouTube series, “Some Good News,” with an interview from Steve Carell, his former co-star on “The Office.” The pair thought about their time on the show and gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at some of their favorite moments.

The sit-down took place in honor of the 15th anniversary of the cult favorite, which took place last week.

“So Steve, this week was a big anniversary for you and me. We were on a little show called ‘The Office’ and it turned 15 this week,” said Krasinski, 40, joking that he never expected the show would catch on like this.

“I mean, I was a waiter when I got that job. I was 23 years old, ‘the father of two recalled. “After the pilot, I went back to waiting tables because I was sure that nothing would happen to it. We all got into it with that vibe. I remember that none of us had done anything great. ‘

Carell, 57, added, “It’s such a happy surprise that after all these years, people still tune in and still find it today. It’s pretty cool.”

When asked about his favorite memories, Carell quickly selected the episode in which his character, Michael and Jan from Melora Hardin, hosted a dinner party. In it Michael brags famously about his (very) small plasma TV. As the “Beautiful Boy” star remembered, outtakes from Krasinski, Carell, Jenna Fischer, aka Pam Beesly and Hardin.

“I think most of the memories have to do with things we shared as a cast – when we were doing ‘Fun Run’ and it was about 105 degrees outside,” said Carell, as a clip rolled from Michael fettuccine Alfredo getting involved in a charity race.

Carell also likes the episode where Krasinski mimics Jim, like Jim’s nemesis, Dwight, because Carell believes it emphasized how much the stars of the show supported each other.

“Part of what was so great about it was that everyone in the cast was rooting for everyone,” said Carell. “People stepped back when it was time for other people to shine and celebrate. When you came in as Dwight that day, it was crazy to see Jim doing Dwight. You are generally a very good impressionist. I don’t think it’s something people know. “

The making of the series led to countless laughs, but there were also some tough moments. Krasinski said that shooting Michael’s last episode was “the most emotional thing I did on set” and that it took at least “17 or 19 shots.”

Carell added, “Some of my fondest memories, personal or professional, are intertwined and connected to that show.”

“No doubt,” said Krasinski. “Listen, I know everyone’s talking about a reunion. Hopefully one day we’ll get back together as people and we can all say hello. ‘

Carell replied, “It’s so great to see your face.”

Krasinski continued, “I miss you very much, man. It’s so good to see you and thank you so much for doing this. We’re trying to set up a news network just for good news, and boy are you good news. ‘

Before he said goodbye, he joked, “I really think you’re going to make something of yourself, Steve.”
