VAN NUYS, Calif. -- "The Office" star John Krasinski's grandmother, Regina Krasinski, lived in Natrona Heights, where his father grew up. She passed away during the run of "The Office" but John visited his father's hometown while filming "Promised Land" in Western Pennsylvania in spring 2012. Mr. Krasinski starred in and co-wrote the film with Matt Damon.
"My dad came and visited me on set and we drove through Natrona Heights and went through the whole neighborhood," he said. "It was one of those rare moments you get to have with a parent where he explained his whole childhood by pointing out the spots where it actually happened, from where they used to eat to where he walked to baseball practice to where he used to stand to wait for his dad to get out of the steel mill."
