How 'Some Good News' Created the Perfect 'Office' Reunion

John Krasinski creates quarantine magic by marrying a couple and throwing an Office reunion on the latest SGN.

Yesterday on Krasinski's Internet show, Some Good News, he invited a couple of mega-fans on to discuss their love for The Office and each other.  Guests Susan and John from Maryland wrote to Krasinski earlier this year about how their relationship has mirrored one from the show. Jim (Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer) provided one of TV's best slow-burn romances of recent years.

"John got down on one knee and, just like Jim, he was like, 'I can't wait any longer,'" Susan said.

The couple invited Krasinski to the wedding, half-joking.

"The truth is, I am able to attend," Krasinski told them. "But only if we do it right now. You think I'm kidding, but I just got ordained as a minister."

After flashing his credentials, Krasinski got all their parents and several friends on the call to act as their wedding party, but he didn't stop there. He added Fischer as well, and Zac Brown provided music.

Once vows were exchanged, Krasinski said, “Since you so elegantly ripped off our show for your proposal, I feel like it’s only fitting that you rip off the wedding, too.”

Then Krasinski surprised the couple by adding Steve Carell, Mindy Kaling, Rainn Wilson, Angela Kinsey, Ed Helms, Kate Flannery, Brian Baumgartner, Phyllis Smith, Oscar Nunez, and Creed Bratton to recreate the dance from Jim and Pam's wedding.

Watch the entire feel-good episode below.

Even in these crazy circumstances, you can help tell fun stories and bring talent, fans, and audiences together in surprising ways.

This is nonsense. SGN straight up ripped off Some More News. Anyone read the CIA in Hollywood? Pretty clear here who Krasinksi's "agents" are. Oh by the way, read that book (CIA in Hollywood) you'll find that they are actually violating the first amendment (favoring speech over others on certain scripts, etc). What a sad and pathetic state of affairs. No Film School better put its people into school if this is the mindless bollocks being peddled around here. How should anyone write a good script without the critical thinking needed to discern a "good" from "bad" story? Sad and pathetic. Sad. Pathetic.
