What's so amazing about this picture is that John Krasinski is only 5'7" | Photo courtesy of Universal

I'll be in the minority when I attend Leatherheads this weekend because I'm not going to see George Clooney. As an increasingly obsessive fan of The Office (I record the repeats on TNT), I'm paying to see my man John Krasinski finally--let's hope--be in a good movie. After mega-stinkers like License to Wed and The Holiday he is way overdue to be in a film that properly utilizes his narrow but sharp comic instincts.

Shine a Light feels like it's about twenty years overdue. Don't get me wrong--I still love Scorsese (though I'd rather see him try something along the lines of The Age of Innocence again). The Rolling Stones, however, seem like an awfully creaky subject. I accord full respect to any band that can still fill a stadium after forty years of playing, but I'll pass on buying a movie ticket and stick with a DVD of Rock and Roll Circus instead.
