You completely transformed your body for 13 Hours. What was that experience like?
When abs show and you can actually count them and there’s more than two? I think that’s a pretty big day. And when you get those lower abs that go into your jeans, you’re like, I don’t even know what those are, but I’m glad they’re here.

Emmy winner Danes (“Homeland,” “Temple Grandin”), who made her Broadway debut in the 2007 Broadway revival of “Pygmalion,” will appear alongside Krasinski (making his theatrical debut in the project) as two colleagues at a private equity firm who have two very different ideas of what to do in the face of a PR catastrophe.

“The Hollars” is set to have it’s world premiere during the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. The movie is part of the festival’s Premieres selection. John directed the movie and stars alongside Anna Kendrick, Margo Martindale, Richard Jenkins, Sharlto Copley and Charlie Day. The first screening will be held on January 29 at the Eccles Theatre and for more information be sure to head over to the official website.
John Krasinski’s big-hearted family comedy takes a touching look at the ties that bind. Krasinski plays John Hollar, a frustrated graphic novelist anxiously awaiting the birth of his baby with girlfriend, Rebecca (Anna Kendrick). When his mother, Sally (Margo Martindale), is diagnosed with a brain tumor, John flies back home, where denial runs deep in the family tree. While his loving but fractured family pulls together to prepare Sally for surgery, John takes a second look at the life he left behind.
Krasinski, last seen at the Sundance Film Festival with his directorial debut Brief Interviews with Hideous Men (2009), takes a gentle approach to the dysfunctional Hollar clan, leavening the heart-tugging drama with inspired character-driven comedy. The large ensemble cast (including Richard Jenkins, Sharlto Copley, Josh Groban, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Mary Kay Place) gives the relationships a lived-in feeling, while Krasinski offers a warm, funny, warts-and-all look at the importance of family.
The festival runs from January 21-31.
