John Krasinski has “some good news” for high school graduates who will be unable to attend the ball this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking to Twitter, the star of “Jack Ryan” – who recently launched the new web series “Some Good News” – wrote that “he can’t stand the lack of prom anymore. Let’s do something!”
To fill the void, he will organize a virtual ball.
According to Krasinski, he will take on the functions of DJ “with friends live on YouTube”.
He posted a similar message on Instagram, showing a sample of his DJ skills – as well as a brief vocal performance of Chris de Burgh’s “Lady in Red”.
Although Krasinski did not reveal who the other guest DJs would be, given that his previous shows had featured guests such as Steve Carell, the original Broadway cast of “Hamilton” and the Boston Red Sox, he would not be out About expect big-name celebrities.
At the start of the show, Krasinski was dressed in a tuxedo with neon glasses with a disco light in the background.
The show included Krasinski trying to DJ despite “not knowing how” and guest appearances by Rainn Wilson, Chance the Rapper, the Jonas Brothers in the opening minutes.
Billie Eilish joined where she said she “had never really been to the ball”, adding, “I went to the home school ball which is not really a ball.”
Eilish was then joined by her brother, Finneas O’Connell, who said he “wanted to cry” for Krasinski’s “love” by creating this ball before performing together.
“It’s the least I can do, embarrassing for you,” Krasinski told those watching the show coming to an end.
