John Krasinski hosted a wedding during his latest episode of “Some Good News” — becoming an ordained minister just before — while bringing back the original cast of “The Office” for a goodhearted surprise.

On his internet show “Some Good News,” Krasinski shares stories from around the world that shed some light in the somewhat dark news cycle that largely focuses on the developments of COVID-19.
In his latest episode, Krasinski shared what he said might be his “favorite love story of the week.”
“[It] was a couple down in Maryland, whose wedding proposal was oddly familiar,” he said.
That’s because the couple — named Susan and John — recreated the famous proposal from “The Office” where Krasinkski’s character Jim got down on one knee at a gas station. To commemorate, Krasinski brought his on-screen wife Pam, played by Jennan Fischer, to be Susan’s maid of honor.
But the surprises didn’t end there.
Apparently, the sitcom meant a lot to Susan and John.
“So I knew the proposal needed to be something really special but also really something unique,” John said. “‘The Office’ has been something that has connected the two of us for a very, very long time so it just felt right.”
The pair tweeted at Krasinski afterward to see if he would attend their virtual wedding. Which is when Krasinski revealed that he had been ordained and he would be the one marrying them.
He surprised them with their parents and best friends as guests on the video call. He even surprised them with country star Zac Brown singing as Susan “walked” down the aisle (when, in reality she just sat there).
And as icing on the virtual wedding cake, Krasinski followed that by saying he had invited some of his family to the ceremony as well — the cast member of “The Office.” The cast recreated their famous wedding flash mob dance from a past episode where Jim and Pam go married.
