Did John Krasinski Play the Monsters in A Quiet Place?

John Krasinski Actually Plays 1 of the Monsters in A Quiet Place — See Him in Action

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt hushed us into complete suspense in A Quiet Place. Not only did John direct and costar in the film, but as revealed in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, he also played the sound-sensitive monsters. Donning a motion picture suit, Krasinski crawled around exactly how he imagined the scary beings would move. And if you have any doubts about the validity of his dedication to portraying the monsters, Kimmel whipped out a hilarious photo of Krasinski in full character as an other-worldly beast.

"Yeah . . . that's embarrassing," John joked as soon as he saw the photo. "They took that picture, and I thought I was auditioning for Lion King. I don't know what's going on in that. I was there, though, just dialed in."

Krasinski also talked about getting to star alongside his wife, calling her the "classiest, smartest, most dedicated actress I've ever known." Watch him talk more about costarring with Blunt as well as suiting up to play a terrifying fiend in the clip above.
