8) John Krasinski
Here is another actor from The Office who is not only gaining status as an entertainer, director, producer, and writer but also has a degree from one of the prestigious Ivy League schools. Krasinski initially became familiar to audiences through his poignant and often painfully funny role as Jim Halpert. Within the last several years, he has starred in several major Hollywood films and branched out into dramatic writing, directing and producing. One show on which he is executive producer, Lip Sync Battle, has a huge public following and the patronage of Hollywood’s brightest and biggest stars. Given his talents, it may not surprise you to know that Krasinski went to Brown, where he majored in English and graduated with honors with a Creative Writing degree. He has remarked on how important his years at Brown were to his skills as a screenwriter.
