John Krasinski, who stars alongside Claire Danes and Hank Azaria in The Public Theater’s production of Dry Powder, made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to chat about his latest role.
Krasinski told the host that one of his biggest nightmares became a reality during a recent performance when he realized his fly was down. The duo discussed other stage mishaps like forgotten cues, breaking character and ringing cell phones. Krasinski admitted he was particularly anxious about laughing during a performance; he recounted a story in which an audience member “expelled air,” testing his ability not to break.
