Amazon released its Jack Ryan series starring John Krasinski on 31 August, where he stars as the titular character, a CIA analyst with a desk job, who is handed a dangerous field assignment. Krasinski recently made his directorial debut and co-starred with Emily Blunt in the horror flick A Quiet Place.

But he is remembered for his portrayal of Jim Halpert in the mockumentary show The Office. Funny or Die recently released a parody trailer on Twitter, combining the web series' trailer with footage from The Office.

While the trailer sets a serious tone with espionage, suspense, and action, the result is comedic as the villain that Jim/Jack has to hunt down turns out to be his colleague Dwight Schrute, played by Rainn Wilson.

Jack Ryan is based on Tom Clancy's best-selling books The Hunt for Red October and Clear and Present Danger. The character was last seen onscreen Kenneth Branagh's Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit portrayed by Chris Pine. The show was even renewed by Amazon for a second season ahead of its premiere, reported The Hollywood Reporter.
