John Krasinski may have made friends for life while on the set of The Office, but he's not sure he'd trust their on-screen personas to babysit his daughters.

In an exclusive preview of the Pop Culture Moms podcast shared with PEOPLE, the actor and director, 44, was asked which character from The Office he'd let babysit his daughters Violet, 7, and Hazel, 10, whom he shares with wife Emily Blunt, 41.

"Oh my god, definitely not Steve. That would be the only one," Krasinski jokes of his friend and costar Steve Carrell's character Michael Scott. "I mean, Steve in real life, maybe, but not Michael."

"I guess the person that I would choose to be my babysitter...It's gotta be Angela because that baby will be safe," he says of costar Angela Kinsey. "That child will stay safe. It may be in a crate, but it will be safe the whole time."

Speaking to PEOPLE in May about his new movie IF, Krasinski noted that his daughters were able to be involved in his movie-making process, but said they were already more "biased" towards his wife's more magical jobs.

"When they found out that I was going to do it, it was really exciting because it was the first time that I had ever involved them in anything," Krasinski told PEOPLE. "I was pretty sure that they thought I was an accountant before this because their mom was Mary Poppins and in Jungle Cruise."

"So she was off to a very biased start with our girls. And so on this one, I pitched them the idea. I told them when I was going out to write in the mornings and in the afternoons, and then I was just sketching all the IFs as I was writing," the dad of two continued.

"And I would bring home the sketches," he shared. "I would show them. And then of course, I'm a terrible artist. So then once I started interfacing with real artists and talking about how it would really look, they got really excited, and their two imaginary friends are in the movie, which is great."

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski attend the 81st Annual Golden Globe Awards on January 07, 2024 in Beverly Hills, California.

As Krasinski and Blunt walked the red carpet at the premiere of IF last month, the two spoke with Extra about whether their daughters have watched the movie yet. The couple noted that the film got "two thumbs up" from their kids.

Though his girls were ultimately fans, Krasinski said that there was added pressure "because I made it for them, completely and entirely about their magical world, so this is one I can't screw up."

When the family did get to watch the film together, the proud dad said it was "amazing" and "unbelievable."

"I don't even know about 'cool dad,' it was emotional dad, for sure. It was so beautiful." he added.

"For our kids to have their mom in the movie too was so massive. It was a family affair," Krasinski continued.
