In the article below, you will discover John Krasinski’s Networth, Career Earnings, Homes, Charitable Causes, Biography, and social media accounts.
John Krasinksi’s Reported Career Earnings
Income from The Office:
Krasinksi’s breakthrough came in 2004 on the NBC sitcom The Office, which aired for nine seasons. For the first two seasons, Krasinski earned approximately $20,000 per episode. Once the show became a big hit, he and the rest of the cast were able to negotiate higher salaries, earning himself $100,000 per episode. 25 episodes a season meant Krasinski’s annual salary totaled $2.5 million.
Krasinski should also expect residuals checks to continue to come for decades because of the show’s popularity. Unfortunately, it looks like his deal didn’t cover any points, so he will have to be satisfied with the basic SAG-AFTRA residuals. Unlike his co-star Steve Carrell who probably could retire on those residual checks alone.
Income from jobs outside of acting
Outside of The Office, Krasinski has kept busy and proven himself to be multi-skilled. Not only has he taken leading roles in blockbusters and indie movies, but Krasinski also has producing, directing, and writing credits.
The highlight so far being the horror movie The Quiet Place, which he wrote, produced, directed, and co-starred with his wife Emily Blunt. The movie has a 95% Rotten Tomatoes rating and earned $340 million worldwide and spawned a sequel. His earnings have not been reported for the movie, but we can safely assume, as a producer, that there were points negotiated in the contract.
Krasinski has been taking commercial acting jobs since he first moved to New York to pursue acting. Nowadays, he does not even need to appear in the commercials. He has been the voice for Esurance commercials since 2011. According to IMDB, Krasinski has lent his celebrity voice to other major brands, Apple TV, Ask.com, and Blackberry Storm.
In 2020, Krasinski joined forces with celebrity pals Chris Evans and Rachel Dratch, starring in a popular Super Bowl ad for Hyundai. How much did he make for that 30 second part? A local ad exec who has worked on Super Bowl spots told the New York Post “It ranges from $500,000 to $2 million depending on the commercial and the celebrity,”.

John Krasinski was born October 20, 1979, in Boston, the youngest of three boys. Raised Catholic in the Boston suburb of Newton, Massachusetts, he would go on to graduate from Brown University in 2001 as a playwright. He also was a member of a sketch comedy group and trained at the National Theater Institution in Waterford, Connecticut.
After graduating from Brown, Krasinski would move to New York to pursue acting. He would earn commercial and guest-starring acting roles while working as a waiter. But it was 2004 when Krasinski found his first breakthrough role, Jim Halpert on the NBC sitcom The Office, which ran for 9 seasons.
George Clooney gave him his first starring feature film Leatherheads, a period comedy about the early formation of the NFL. While Krasinski was praised for his work, the film did as well as you would assume a period piece on football would do.
While Krasinski did some directing for The Office, it was not until 2009 that he got his first directorial debut for the comedy-drama Brief Interview with Hideous Man. Based on a David Foster Wallace collection of short stories, Krasinski wrote the screenplay, produced, and also starred in the low-budget indie flick. The film premiered at Sundance and was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize.
Other Notable Works
Matt Damon decided to lean on Krasinski to star, co-write, and co-produce the drama Promise Land, based on a true story by Dave Eggers. Directed by Gus Van Sant, the film premiered at the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival in 2013.
Continuing their successful partnership, Matt and John collaborated to produce the critically acclaimed 2016 drama Manchester by the Sea. Starring Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams, the film received 6 nominations at the 89th Academy Awards including Best Picture.
Some of his other memorable films include Michael Bay’s 13 Hours, the star-filled Aloha, and Kathryn Bigelow’s Detroit.
His last two mainstream hits have come from self-produced projects, the feature film The Quiet Place, and the Amazon television series Jack Ryan. In critically acclaimed The Quiet Place, Krasinski directed, co-wrote, and co-stars with his wife Emily Blunt. The movie would become a blockbuster hit, earning $340 million worldwide.
For the Amazon series, Krasinski would become the fifth actor to portray the titular character, Jack Ryan. The show premiered in 2018 and was renewed for a second season four months before the show was even aired.
Krasinski began dating English actress Emily Blunt in November 2008. After just one year, the couple became engaged in 2009 and married in a private official ceremony on July 10, 2010, in Como, Italy at George Clooney’s former home. They currently live in Brooklyn and have two daughters named Hazel (born February 2014) and Violet (born June 2016).
