John Krasinski to Star as Jack Ryan in Amazon Series from ‘Lost’ Showrunner

Office star John Krasinski has been cast as the next Jack Ryan in the upcoming Amazon series based on novelist Tom Clancy’s novels, according to Deadline. Lost showrunner Carlton Cuse and writer Graham Roland are heading up the project with Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes, Paramount TV, and Skydance Media producing. The project arrives at Amazon with a series commitment, but nothing has been made official as of yet. This will be “a new contemporary take on the character in his prime as a CIA analyst/operative using the novels as source material.” Krasinski has worked with Bay before in 13 Hours and follows in the footsteps of Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck, and recently, Chris Pine who have also played the character.
