John Krasinski Admits It's 'Super Intimidating' to Step into Alec Baldwin and Harrison Ford's Shoes as New Jack Ryan

Originally posted 08/26/2016 03:55PM

John Krasinski is officially adding his name to the illustrious list of stars who've portrayed Tom Clancy's iconic character Jack Ryan – and, yea, he's "a little nervous."

Krasinski's turn as the CIA agent will headline a new, 10-episode Amazon series. Ryan has previously been brought to the big screen by Harrison Ford in Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger, Alec Baldwin in The Hunt for Red October, Ben Affleck in The Sum of All Fears and, most recently, Chris Pine in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

"People say there's nothing like your first, so the first time I saw Jack Ryan it was with Alec Baldwin," Krasinski tells PEOPLE. "And then Harrison Ford, I don't know if you can get better than him. And Ben Affleck and Chris Pine are huge superstars of our current day."

Krasinski knows that he has some big shoes to fill, but is "thrilled" for the challenge: "It's super intimidating coming behind them to add something new and something fresh. They are just going into the writers room now so it's very new."
