Ryan Reynolds and Randall Park remember a beloved moment from Office in the latest teaser for John Krasinski’s new film IF. In the commercial, Ryan Reynolds, who is also one of the stars of the film, appears behind the scenes and talks about the film. Park then interrupts by taking the director’s chair and introducing himself as Krasinski, who wrote, directed and starred in IF.
“Wait, wait, wait. What are you doing ? asks Reynolds. Park goes on to say, “I’m talking about our movie.” Reynolds responds: “You are not John Krasinski. You are Randall Park. John Krasinski is much shorter and less Asian.
Reynolds then uses a Park quiz to prove that he is really the director. Finally, the Fresh off the boat alum announces that the preview can wait until Sunday. The song continues throughout the backstage simulation, with Park replacing Krasinski.
The whole video is a nod to OfficeThe opening prank of the season 9 episode of “Andy’s Ancestry”in which Jim asks his actor friend (Park) to pretend to be him while he’s at the dentist, much to the chagrin of Dwight (Rainn Wilson).
IFwhich is a live-action animated fantasy comedy, was first announced in October 2019. The Walking Dead‘s Cailey Fleming stars as Bea, a girl who realizes she has the power to see everyone’s imaginary friends who have been left behind, called “FI.” Bea teams up with her neighbor, The Man Upstairs (Reynolds), who also shares her abilities, to reconnect the FIs with their old adult friends.
