"It's so incredible. The New York Times and Film Independent do this thing called Live Reads... and they asked me to direct one, which means you just cast as many cool people as you can to do it, and I was lucky enough to get a lot of cool people, including my wife, and so we're just gonna read Good Will Hunting onstage in front of like, 860 people, and it's gonna be a lot of fun." John Krasinski jumped at the chance to direct a live reading of Oscar-winning movie Good Will Hunting because he was given free rein to cast whoever he wanted to work with. The actor's wife Emily Blunt has signed up for a role, but her other castmates have yet to be revealed.
