In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, a certain well-known comic character (not saying who here because the film's still new and he wasn't in the trailers) shows up with a rather prominent nose and a dark beard, making him look ambiguously Middle Eastern. I looked it up and was surprised to learn that this was John Krasinski, better known to most viewers as Jim from The Office.

That really, really did not look like Jim, especially with the big nose! Was he wearing a prosthetic nose for some reason, or was it just weird camera angles?

    I VTCed this one since it's basically trivia and doesn't add to the understanding of the film or the character(s) or pretty much anything else; it's a one-off topic. Sorry @Mason but I tried finding a reason to keep it open.

  • well, Krasinski doesn't exactly have a 'small' nose...

  • There was one episode of The Office where they were talking about the employees' family history and someone mentioned that Jim was a distant relative of Richard Nixon who was known to have a big nose. Jim shrugged it off at first until he felt his own nose and showed a worried expression. But I think in the opening shot of his character, his nose did seem rather large. I was also taken aback. I think another reason was the camera angle as you said (the camera was facing upwards from Doctor Stange's perspective) May 15, 2022 at 15:40

If the image on the right is accurate [I haven't seen the movie yet to know if this is a true screengrab from Dr Strange] then I'd say no.

I've always thought he has a rather 'intriguing' nose shape anyway, though I don't really know him from as far back as the Office, only from Jack Ryan & The Quiet Place.
