John Krasinski’s Net Worth in 2023

John Krasinski’s Net Worth is $80 Million

Ever heard the saying, “Behind every smirk, there’s a story”? John Krasinski is living proof of that. This cool-guy Hollywood heavyweight, born John Burke Krasinski, has stacked up a crazy fortune. As of December 2022, he and his fabulously famous wife Emily Blunt are sitting on $80 million. Turns out there’s money to be had in the smirking game. Oh, and their respective film and TV careers.

Even though it’s a shared bank account, word on the street is that Krasinski might be bringing in a tad more. His work as an actor, director, and writer speaks for itself. Our crush on Jim Halpert on The Office started in 2005. From there, he’s created his own production company, Sunday Night Productions, and has pretty much become the poster-boy for the American dream.

From the Spark of Drama to a Blazing Career

Born and brought up in Newton, Massachusetts, John Krasinski, the baby brother of three, knew from a young age that he was destined for the spotlight. High school is where it all started, with his buddy B.J. Novak writing and casting him in a hilarious satirical play. This was their first collaboration but certainly not their last. Their paths would cross once more, though under a much brighter spotlight.

After waving goodbye to high school in ’97, John was itching for an adventure, so he jumped on a plane to Costa Rica and spent a semester teaching English. Eventually, though, he swapped the sandy beaches for the campus of Brown University, where he honed his writing skills and graduated as a playwright in 2001. To top it off, he spent time studying at the Eugene O’Neill National Theatre Institute, soaking up everything he could about theatre.

Ever the go-getter, John left university and headed straight for the Big Apple. You may have even spotted him in a few commercials or smaller film roles while he was finding his groove. Heck, he even cut his teeth serving as an intern script writer on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” in 2000.

But the role that put him on the map was the lovable Jim Halpert on The Office. It was here that he reunited with B.J. Novak (a.k.a. Ryan the intern). From 2005 to 2013, John earned heaps of love from fans and critics alike. The show even bagged the Screen Actors Guild Awards for Outstanding Performance in a Comedy Series in both 2006 and 2007. Always pushing boundaries, John also showed off his directing skills and wrote several episodes’ scripts.

The Financial Fruits of John’s Stellar Career

Who knew Jim was quietly saving away all those Dunder-Mifflin paychecks? John Krasinski started off on The Office earning a respectable $20,000 an episode for the first three seasons. The sitcom turned out to be a mega-hit—thanks in part to the charm of its leading hunk. So John got a proper raise. His paycheck hopped five times up to $100,000 an episode from the fourth season and continued until the show’s last, ninth season.

But John didn’t just stop at acting. He mined his creative side to make “A Quiet Place” and its sequel, “A Quiet Place: Part II”. John wrote and directed both films while his production company, Sunday Night Productions, were behind these awesome scares. The first part of this freaky horror series collected $340.9 million at the box office—an astonishing return for a film that only cost $17 million to make. The exact amount they handed over to John is uncertain, but given he was the director, writer, and executive producer, we’re sure he made a bundle.

Branching Beyond Hollywood: An Expanding Revenue Stream

John Krasinski does indeed have a life outside The Office. He has an entrepreneurial streak, blending his creative passions with some savvy business ventures.

During the pandemic, while the world stayed home amid turmoil, John self-produced Some Good News—a YouTube series that delivered only good news. It was a huge hit, delivering to the people what they so badly needed during a turbulent period. The program was such a hit that ViacomCBS licensed it after a bidding war broke out for the privilege. The exact figure John took home for a series he produced in what looks like his den is unknown, but any time a bidding war breaks out, you can rest assured the numbers were substantial.

John’s Lavish Lifestyle and Benevolent Deeds

John Krasinski and his wife Emily Blunt own a $15.3-million pad in Brooklyn. More than a pad, it’s the entire eighth floor to themselves in the Standish. Originally a hotel, it’s got a fitness center, a children’s playroom, even a dedicated bike room. Just imagine what their actual apartment must look like.

They also owned a $2.57-million place in the Hollywood Hills. They bided their time and sold it for an impressive $3.49 million in 2016. Crazy, right? Shows just how clever they are with their investments.

Following up on the success of Some Good News, John launched Some Good Merch in 2020. Every cent made from the shop goes to numerous noble causes, making sure your shopping spree is also a deed well done. Plus, he teamed up with the Starbucks Foundation to do more good. Not just cementing his status as a good guy, he’s also proving you can make bank and make a difference at the same time.

A Down-to-Earth Family Life Behind the Hollywood Glam

As the youngest of three brothers, John was lucky enough to grow up in a caring household with parents in health care. His mom was a nurse and his dad was a doctor. His blended Polish-Irish roots played a big role in shaping him into the person he is today.

It was love at first sight when John met Emily Blunt back in 2008. He was already caught up in her spell after watching her film The Devil Wears Prada (like, 70 times!). On their first date, he just knew she was the one. After a quick romance, they got married in 2010. Since then, they’ve added two little stars to their family: Hazel, their eldest, was born in ’14; Violet in ’16.

John and Emily have proven that couples can work together, as proven by their roles in A Quiet Place and its sequel. They manage to balance work and family life, even when that work involves being a couple of Hollywood A-listers.
