Interview with John Krasinski, Robin Williams, and more



[Comments] A reverend puts an engaged couple through a grueling marriage preparation course to see if they are meant to be married in his church.

Our good friend Kate Flannery suggested we go to the premiere of "License to Wed" in Hollywood and chat with her "The Office" co-stars, and so, we did. This Stipko Live short is a excerpt from those interviewes.

Angela Kinsey Can you imagine a half an hour of miserable Angela Martin? You'd want to go jump off a cliff! ...I think she's a mall walker because she doesn't like the sun. Then she would have a Tupperware party, but she's really militant about her Tupperware.

John Krasinski I wasn't trying to put too much pressure on [this movie]. I just wanted to pick a role that was fun.

Robin Williams When you look up to [tall] Mandy Moore, it's a beautiful view, because right there you're right at... a... wonderful place.

Newly engaged, Ben Murphy (John Krasinski) and Sadie Jones (Mandy Moore) can't wait to start their life together and live happily ever after. The problem is that Sadie's family church, St. Augustine's, is run by Reverend Frank (Robin Williams), who won't bless Ben and Sadie's union until they pass his patented, "foolproof" marriage-prep course. Consisting of outrageous classes, outlandish homework assignments and some outright invasion of privacy, Reverend Frank's rigorous curriculum puts Ben and Sadie's relationship to the test. Forget happily ever after--do they even have what it takes to make it to the altar?
