“I would love to have a bromance with him,” Krasinski told PEOPLE magazine on Tuesday.
“But I don’t even know if I could even use the word ‘bromance’ because he and Ben are so tight and like a married couple that I’ll never get in there.”
The 33-year-old actor stars in the new Gus Van Sant film Promised Land opposite Damon, 42, who also shares producing and screenwriting duties with The Office alum.
While Krasinski can continue to dream big about his new buddy, he’s got some big Hollywood bromance shows to follow.
There’s Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire, whose tight-knit circle also includes Entourage star Kevin Connolly. Next May, DiCaprio and Maguire will reunite on screen in Baz Luhrman’s film adaptation of The Great Gatsby.
“I’m at the stage in my life and I’m married and have children, so I don’t get to see my buddies as much as I’d like and just the fact I was forced to see one of my best friends everyday was fantastic,” Maguire told Celebuzz in October about working with his pal.
“Then, I got to go to work with one of our greatest actors and be inspired by him. So, I felt very grateful for that time. It was great.”George Clooney and Brad Pitt have also sustained one of the industry’s longest friendships. But as Pitt gets ready to marry his longtime love Angelina Jolie, it looks like the Ocean’s Eleven actor will look elsewhere for life advice.
“What can [Clooney] tell me? Other than how to protect my liver!” Pitt told PEOPLE in November.
Over the years, the small screen has also seen bromances blossom between the likes of Zach Braff and his Scrubs pal Donald Faison, and Jon Stewart and his former Daily Show correspondent Stephen Colbert, who of course now has his own program.
Promised Land, starring John Krasinski and Matt Damon, will open in limited release Dec. 28.
