John Krasinski Reveals He Also Played The Monster In A QUIET PLACE (w/ BTS Picture!)


Whatever your thoughts might be on the film itself, it’s hard to deny that A Quiet Place was one of the early hits of 2018. Our very own MFR previously described the film as a master work that packs an emotional wallop in his review for the site. Personally the strength of lead actor and director John Krasinski is a big part of why he’s currently my personal favorite suggestion to both direct and star in the next Superman film… whenever such a project actually comes around.

And while it isn’t much, Krasinski revealed a fun bit of future movie trivia knowledge about his work on A Quiet Place. In a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the actor-director revealed that he also appeared in the film as its signature monster in the final sequences where audiences could finally get a full look of the creature.

Nobody knows it because I’ve kept it [a secret],” Krasinski teased. “This is gonna end my career. Yeah, the commitment level was very high. The amazing people at ILM, said, ya know, ‘So how does the creature move?’ So I said, ‘Well, this is how I think he’s gonna crawl.’ And they just said, ‘Well, why don’t you throw on the suit?’ And I was like, ‘Totally!

Aside from his recounting of the experience, Krasinski and Kimmel also released the on-set picture below of the actor in suit for the part.


Again, this isn’t exactly groundbreaking news. However I think it’s a fun bit of future movie trivia and it’s always interesting to learn more about the quirky behind-the-scenes events that go on in making memorable movies. It’s also further proof that John Krasinski is a unique talent more people should be paying attention to.
