If you've got the Monday blues, then we've got some news that will make you feel better! After it was revealed that The Office might be getting a reboot, fans wondered if any of the OG cast would return. Well, one person who is definitely down to join is John Krasinski! After all, what's Dunder Mifflin without Jim Halpert? Though it's not even close to *official*, the actor told Ellen DeGeneres he'd agree to do the reboot if the network asks him!

Who knew it would be that easy!? He's a big-time actor now so many thought John might be too busy to consider it. Luckily, we were wrong which means a Jim and Pam reunion is possible!

During his recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, John revealed he has not yet been contacted by NBC about the possibility of joining the reboot. “I did hear that on the internet. Guess who didn’t get a call? Me,” he told Ellen, after she questioned his involvement with the rumored revival. “What does that say? NBC’s like ‘You know who we didn’t like? Jim.'”

“They wouldn’t do it without you,” Ellen replied, before John said, with a very Jim Halpert expression on his face, “Well it looks like they are. I haven’t gotten a call yet.”

When Ellen asked if whether he'd consider it, he said yes without hesitation. “Oh my god, are you kidding? I'd love to get that gang back together,” he told her. Watch in the video below!

Last month, Jenna Fischer also said she's willing to join the reboot. “I don't know anything about The Office revival. I know as much as anyone else,” she said. “I think that's for networks to figure out if I were to be asked, but I haven't been approached about it. But I love Pam!”

“I think the idea of an Office revival is – I think it's a great idea. I would be honored to come back in any way that I'm able to. I loved playing that character, and as long as Greg Daniels is the person in charge and the visionary behind it, then I would absolutely be up for it,” Jenna added. “That show was so great because of the talent involved in the show, behind the scenes, not just on the screen.”

With both John and Jenna on board, The Office reboot looks promising. Now, all we need is Rainn Wilson, Mindy Kaling and other stars to agree! Though Steve Carell once said that bringing back the show wasn't such a good idea, he always has time to change his mind! We really hope he does.

News of the possibility of a reboot made headlines in December after TVLine reported that NBC was looking to revive the show during the 2018-2019 season. Since then, no new details have emerged, but perhaps they're trying to keep information under wraps for now. The good news is that John and Jenna are 100% down to do it, so all NBC has to do is give them a call!
