Amazon Studios is bringing another actor to the role in their new series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan. What rugged macho man have they nabbed for the superspy role?

John Krasinski is set to star in the series, and, to his credit, he’s broken the Jim Halpert mold in recent years, starring in movies like 13 Hours.
