John Krasinski Conducts An Intense Interrogation In New Jack Ryan Teaser

He may have been the goofy prankster from the desk over in The Office, but John Krasinski is straight-up intimidating as analyst Jack Ryan in Amazon's upcoming series Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan. Nothing proves this better than the newest teaser trailer for the show, which the streaming site released Friday evening. 

The footage is mainly comprised of an actual scene from Jack Ryan rather than a group of small moments strung together. We watch as Ryan and another man eat a meal together at a table in what appears to be some kind of underground bunker. The man asks Ryan what the CIA wants with him, but Ryan neither confirms nor denies that he is part of the elite government organization. 

Realizing that Ryan won't budge, the unnamed man grills him, asking, "Do you do this often? Kidnapping innocent people off the street and interrogate them?" Ryan then gives a seriously unsettling answer. "You're my first one, actually," he says. "I'm an analyst. How am I doing?" 

Throughout the entire interaction, Ryan is calm and collected, exuding an air of experience that he clearly doesn't have, which cranks the intensity of his very first interrogation up to 11.

The clip goes on to show bursts of footage that don't reveal any plot details, not the least of which would include the identity of the man Ryan apparently abducted and is holding against his will, his motivation behind doing such a thing, or why he, an analyst, is working the field rather than sitting at a desk running numbers. 

Joining Krasinski for Jack Ryan are Wendell Pierce (Ray Donovan, The Wire) as Jack's boss James Greer; Timothy Hutton (Leverage, American Crime) as the CIA's Deputy Director of Operations; Abbie Cornish (Limitless) as infectious disease doctor Cathy Mueller, who turns out to be Ryan's love interest; and Peter Fonda (3:10 to Yuma) as Cathy's father. Krasinski follows in the footsteps of Ben Affleck, Alec Baldwin, and Harrison Ford, all of whom have played Jack Ryan previously. 

Here's the official synopsis for Jack Ryan: "The series follows an up-and-coming CIA analyst thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time as he uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that throws him into the center of a treacherous stratagem with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale."

Executive produced by Krasinski and Carlton Cuse (Lost) and based on Clancy's books, the series will consist of eight episodes and premiere on Amazon Prime video sometime next year.
