I’m not normally a squeeing fangirl, but I have to admit, he’s adorable.

Tipsters: nemme, KC


  1. i might end up attending brown unversity, just on the off chance he might visit again ;)

  2. He seems like such a genuinely nice guy…it’s refreshing considering how many celebrities are. And he is very adorable. I wish I went to Brown!

  3. aww that’s very sweet of him to take a picture with a fan in the middle of his appearance.

  4. I went to the talk and the best parts aren’t in these videos… But it’s cool to see someone posted it online. The fact that he came to Brown definitely legitimized all the time I’ve procrastinated away watching the Office!

  5. I agree that the sweater is a bit of an odd choice, but I still stand by my statement that there is no reason on earth that John Krasinski cannot stop by Boston College on his way home to Newton and say hello to the fans here. It may not be his alma mater, but I can promise he’d be well-received!

  6. ahh … i wish he would come to my school!

    actually i heard he was walking around here in september (i go to school in new york) which i thought was odd — because it’s an all girls school. but anyway, i didn’t see him so he should come back.

  7. He is so darn cute! He is just so down to earth and approachable — he doesn’t have a snotty, snooty air about him and he isn’t braggy. What I would give to meet him…sigh.

  8. I’m not a big fan of the man cardigans either…but then again, it is John Krasinski we’re talking about here–he’s always cute no matter what he wears.

    And coincidentally, Mindy Kaling recently talked about man cardigans in her blog, where she says this about man cardigans: “They’re especially charming on guys under the age of 35, because it’s as though they’re playing this sexy idealized version of “Dad”. But instead of reading Fitzgerald translations of the Aeneid and listening to Harry Belafonte, sexy Cardigan Young Fake Dad reads George Saunders and likes Lily Allen and will of COURSE buy you a drink.
    All in all, super extra hot and adorable.”

    Maybe John took a fashion tip from Mindy?

  9. whoa, CH, another BC student? i’ve been thinking the exact same thing–come home, krasinski!

  10. Tanster, you are totally a squeeing superfangirl. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.

  11. Seriously, Molly, we should bring him to campus. I don’t mean abduction or anything, but he would definitely be more exciting than Third Eye Blind was! Haha
    Good to know the Eagles represent on OT!

  12. The man cardigan looks super cute on him. No cross dressing for this fella! He seems so down-to-earth, intelligent, and funny. Aww, I wish I went to Brown, too.

  13. i don’t blame you. squee’d at every part.

    and i bet mindy kaling put him up to that cardigan. cuuuuute.

  14. Um…I think women actually stole cardigans from us *men*. Along with pants and jackets (which explains why Michael got confused a couple of episodes ago).

    The fashion mags have been pushing cardigans on men like crazy recently, and I think it’s always a classy look. Not sure why there was so much confusion about it…

  15. For me- cardigans are very ‘English’ and schoolboys in the U.K. wear them as part of their uniform. I think it is a very smart look and also looks really good on guys!!
    European guys rock the cardigan and I love the fact that John Krasinski wears it too.

  16. It’s ok about the cardigan…don’t get stressed guys. It just looks kinda odd, maybe overly long (twss)?.

    Yay for those vids. Jkras is super cute.

  17. Dang! I live 10 minutes from Brown University and didn’t realize he was even in Rhode Island this weekend! Oh well…

  18. I don’t think it’s the cardigan that’s confusing people, it’s the fact that he only buttoned a few buttons in the middle… I thought only women did that??
    I don’t care, really… he’s still a cutie.,,

  19. the cardigan looks super sexy. more like john looks super sxy in the gray cardigan that is only partially buttoned

    also. mr. roger from the show had a dozen cardigans in his closet. of every color. does anyone else remember this?

  20. hehe.. he took mindy’s fashion advice.. that’s cute.

    seriously, he can’t be more adorable. or it will break my brain.

  21. Well said, all of you. I’d like to personally thank JK for giving me that giddy, crush on a celebrity feeling that I haven’t had since age twelve. The best part is, you feel like you could just bump into him accidentally on the street somewhere and he’d be the nicest guy.

    Seriously, we need some real life guys like this.

  22. Hey Chrissy (post #30 below) – where are you from? You said you’re 15 minutes from Brown. I’m in Cranston, RI.

  23. OH YEAH, I definitely went up on stage and hugged him that day during his little question and answer sesh. JUST TO BRAG! :) IT WAS AWESOME.
