John Krasinski (better known as Jim Halpert on THE OFFICE) will be in Austin this weekend to promote his new movie and directorial debut, Brief Interviews with Hideous Men. The movie is based on the book of short stories by influential and recently deceased author David Foster Wallace.
On Friday (Nov. 13th) at 7 PM, Krasinski will attend a special screening of the movie at the Alamo Ritz Theater. The Austin premiere will include a Q&A session following the film. On Saturday (Nov. 14th) at noon, Krasinski will be at BookPeople to discuss the movie and sign Brief Interviews with Hideous Men postcards.
While Krasinski plays an easy-going, likable guy on TV, this film seems to be his way of displaying a darker and more provocative side. Here’s a trailer for the movie:
