John Krasinski Couldn't Believe Stephen King's Reaction to A Quiet Place- Late Night with Seth Meyers

Late Night with Seth Meyers


  • The movie remainded me of the last us but with aliens

  • One of my favorites, but his over enthusiasm for tv interviews gets old

  • How did this man go from the guy behind a desk to looking like Captain America? The beard huh

  • Great film. Not enough noise makers perhaps but all in all a tense and fantastic experience.

  • Stephen King was a neighbor of mine when I lived in Bangor,Me... I gave him the Gospel of Jesus Christ once while he was signing one of his novels! We both got hit by a vehicle in 1999.... he was hit before me!

  • He should get a Dundie for best director/actor

  • John seems like a legit good dude

  • Seth being more concerned about the doorman seeing his wife's vagina than about his own wife's welfare. What a jerk.

  • A Quiet Place is a damn good movie and the entire cast should be commended.

  • A Quiet Place was a lot better than I ever thought it would be. Though I did think at one point "this feels like someone saw Hush and thought 'what if instead of a serial killer we had crazy alien monsters?'"

  • Actually this movie is rather full of plot holes and maybe overrated. Not really scary but interesting. Cool monsters but overall just another film that would be better in a different medium.

  • Just watched the movie. It was intense and scary but mostly very moving.

  • Why is Jim Halpert disguised as this John Krasinski Guy?

  • AQP is a really great movie one of my faves

  • Krasinski keep the beard dude u look so badass!!

  • Awesome movie!!❤

  • Seth is the best interviewer of all the late night hosts. He’s smart while questioning and listens during the answer.

  • That movie was chilling 😵

  • It matched with Infinity War

  • I’m sorry to say that I very much disliked the film. Having said that, I still like John very much. He’s a funny guy.

  • This movie reminded me of a short story I read a long time ago. Was a story called, "Milk Teeth". It is also an audio dialogue on youtube. It comes to me as no surprise that Stephen King found this movie in high regard. Great concept and good acting. Can't say it was my favorite movie or the best movie, but John did a bang up job in a genre that was out of his element. Anything can be made with heart, bravo.

  • Though a Quiet Place was filled with suspense, I kept thinking of The Office whenever there is a close up shot of John Krasinki.

  • The acting in the movie was great, but probably even better was the fact that they took a different approach to the horror genre. I mean, think about it. With the classic horror films, they were always gory and filled with blood. But this movie, you don't even see blood until quite a while into the movie. If you haven't seen it, I would highly recommend it


  • he says the same thing in every interview lol

  • So talented, both of them.

  • John is genuinely one of the funniest people of all time

  • Jim got inspiration to write a horror movie from Creed, Dwight, and Toby

  • Amazing. A big ol' movie director now and yet still good ol' Jim Halpert.

  • Movie sucked balls In all honesty. It was a genuinely horrible horror film

  • I saw it. It was one of the very best thriller films I saw and will ever see in my entire life. Stellar film! 100/100

  • Nice job jim

  • It look like Shia labuf

  • Those are some tight pants he's got on. I guess he doesn't want a third... We have three, once you are out numbered, forget about it. It's over, might else well have four at that point. At least the older one will be helpful, until teen years anyway.

  • The movie is incredible. I loved every minute of it. Highly recommend

  • Stephen King is awesome

  • Sadly, the movie sucks.

  • I dun think the movie wasn't that good

  • Jim Hopper

  • "how bout this, NO DIALOGUE!"

  • for people who dont have kids and dont care about kids, hearing parents talk about their babies and kids is one of the most annoying things of all time.

  • Identify theft is not a joke, Jim! Millions of families suffer every year!

  • And who wouldn't let their toddler straggle behind walking through a dangerous environment? SK must really like Swiss cheese.

  • One of the best films in recent years

  • There is something cozy about watching the B-list talk shows. They feel more relaxed and grounded.

  • "Spirit animal" that's so perfect

  • How is every movie the #1 movie?

  • Nice guy, a believable actor, but terrible director. When you make a movie try to have a beginning and an ending to a movie. "A Quiet Place" was void of them

  • 5:43 save your time Your welcome

  • what a fucking queer

  • This movie is more than just horror. I'm tired of people not seeing it because they are afraid of a horror movie.

  • I had a nightmare about this creature concept a long long time ago, very similar to the one in the movie too ! and I always thought it would had made a great movie. Damn.

  • Krasinski is one of those people who deserves his success -- Totally rooting for him.


  • Why does no one ever give credit to the writers lol

  • “There’s wet here”

  • not a horror fan, but this makes me want to watch it. and It.

  • i love this interview. such a pure interaction

  • considering Stephen King hated Kubrick’s The Shining - he’s the worst judge of horror films in history .

    • somanytakennames 1. No 2. Unfortunately, I have neither the time nor the inclination to read your replies, but I will do you the favor of responding, I promise! (At my leisure, of course.) Your preoccupation with impressing me is good fun!

    • bill kaulitz 1) Stop liking your own comments. 2) How would you know? By your admission you didn't even read it. If you struggle to understand a couple of sentences I find it hard to believe you could understand a kids film, let alone The Shining. You probably haven't even seen it, it is for adults after all.

    • somanytakennames 1) No. 2) You don’t write anything worth reading

    • 1) Stop liking your own comments 2) Let me translate your latest comment; "I lack the intellect required to read more than one sentence at a time".

    • somanytakennames I’m not going to waste my time reading all that nonsense but 1) No. 2) You’re wrong.

  • i remember baseball when it was for everyone, not just Trump's friends.

  • How do liberals have babies....liberal men have NO BALLS! lol

  • "That's a baby in your sweatpants."

  • that's jim halpert

  • John Krasinski is SO naturally funny!!! 😂😂😂

  • He should play the adult Stanley in It part 2

  • what a beautiful man

  • I got a Chevy commercial on this video and it’s fucking stupid I feel sorry for people who believe Chevy is a decent company

  • When Seth said "director of horror", and the audience cracks up 😹

  • One of the best films I ever saw. Felt like a cross between "I Am Legend" and "The Last of Us".

  • Correct usage of literally. Instant like.

  • Dang this TV show host is so awkward

  • I dont normally find this guy attractive at all but he is a 10 with a beard...

  • ❤❤❤❤

  • But why would someone have a baby in a world like that?

  • Jim’s growing up 😫

  • Wow, reading the script must have taken gruelling three minutes. :))

  • my Review of A Quiet Place

  • I'm so confused as to why the story is they can't speak so they use ASL to communicate. But then when they film it they cut off like a lot of the signs. Like I bet a lot of the deaf went to go see it. Like yes finally a movie that I can completely pick up on the language. But nope nope they cut the signs out

  • John Krasinski will always be Jim Halpert to me lol

  • @2:30 "....and there's human feces over here"

  • Wow what an amazing movie!! It will make your heart race, then make you cry, then back to jumping out of your seat. A must see in theatres!! Emotional, suspenseful, thoughtful.

  • Tell him there has to be a PART 2

  • crowd sounds super fake!

  • oh jim

  • I am not sure how there is 493 down votes, what the hell are you down voting? John is bing funny and telling a story, lame 0 stars, not one damn explosion or nudity!

  • Oh my god that's a baby! That's a baby in your sweatpants! 😂😂😂

  • Kind of a quiet audience. They must really be into the movie.

  • He is handsome by the way

  • Movie sucked and Blunt had one or two decent acting scenes ( more than her whole career has been). I know schills like Seth are everywhere nowadays, but take the tongue outta the ass , your corporate masters have always been able to afford endless toilet paper. ffs >,;,

  • There is a birth in the movie? Spoilers...😩

  • Scarecrow poisoned the city's water not joker.

  • i love jim.. i mean john! i love john!!


  • #spoilers

  • ... i think i’m in love with john

  • wow. I really need to see this

  • I cant watch this and be scared because Jim Halpert is there

  • Stephen King is the master!! I'll go to a movie theater and watch it now!

  • John is my favorite person in Hollywood. Everybody is telling him how great he is right now yet he still acts like he's good old Jim from the office.

  • I hope Jim will direct Threat Level Midnight
