While speaking to John Krasinski for the Disneynature documentary Born in China, which he narrated and which opens in theaters April 21st, our own Christina Radish also got a chance to talk about the upcoming Jack Ryan TV series. The series comes from executive producer and showrunner Carlton Cuse, with Michael Bay also acting as executive producer for a number of episodes; Krasinski also has producing credits on the series in addition to starring as the title character.

Krasinski is stepping into the role created by Tom Clancy and made famous on the big screen by Harrison Ford, Alec BaldwinBen Affleck, and most recently, Chris Pine. However, the ability to tell Ryan’s story from desk worker to field operative over the course of eight episodes rather than a single movie should offer up interesting possibilities for the character and the creative team. Krasinski and Bay already share prior working experience thanks to the war drama 13 Hours, an experience that has prepped Krasinski for the action-heavy role. But there’s more to Ryan than guns and fisticuffs, as he explains below.
