Yet Another "Fletch" Possibility

by | June 26, 2007 | Comments

Frankly I’ve lost track of how many actors and filmmakers have been attached to a new "Fletch" flick. But the latest possibility is pretty intriguing … especially if you’re a big fan of NBC’s "The Office."

Yep, the latest potential "Fletch" is none other than John Krasinski, better known as the VERY funny Jim Halpert on "The Office." According to the MTV Movies Blog, the young actor is definitely in the running for the part.

"I have no idea [if they’ll cast me]," the 27-year-old actor grinned. "I’ve been shooting a movie down in North Carolina, so I’ve kind of lost touch with who [else] is in the running … I read the script, and it is hilarious. It’s just one of those things that is so terrifying, to step up and be in a role that was done so perfectly."

JK is of course referring to Chevy Chase, who played the title character in both "Fletch" and "Fletch Lives." I definitely think this is the best choice yet. Nothing against Joshua Jackson, but Krasinski definitely seems a lot "fletchier."
