Susan and John, whose marriage proposal echoed Jim’s to Pam on “The Office,” were surprised by Krasinski on a live videoconference, who first brought their parents and friends.
Krasinski, officiating the virtual nuptials, then introduced Jenna Fischer as Susan’s maid of honor and country singer Zac Brown, who performed a new yet-to-be-released song, “The Man Who Loves You the Most,” for the couple.
After pronouncing Susan and John man and wife, Krasinski delivered the big reveal: Virtually the entire cast of “The Office” popped up on the screen and dance to Chris Brown’s “Forever” — a nod to the famous scene in the show’s Season 6 episode of Jim and Pam’s Niagara Falls wedding (which was itself based on a viral video). The wedding celebrants included Jenna Fischer, Steve Carell, Rainn Wilson, Ed Helms, Mindy Kaling, B.J. Novak, Angela Kinsey, Brian Baumgartner, Phyllis Smith, Kate Flannery, Creed Bratton, Oscar Nunez and Ellie Kemper.
Krasinski, who starred as Jim in the NBC primetime comedy hit, launched “Some Good News” six weeks ago to share uplifting stories during the COVID-19 crisis.
In the March 29 premiere episode, he sat down with Steve Carell to reminiscence about the 15th anniversary of “The Office.” Krasinski also teamed with AT&T for the telco’s surprise announcement that it was giving three months of free wireless service to nurses, doctors and other health care workers.
Sunday’s “SGN” episode also featured Emma Stone delivering a weather (“Looks pretty good,” she says) and kicked off with Emily Blunt, who is Krasinski’s wife, sitting in the anchor chair and delivering an impersonation of “The Office” star.
