John Krasinski paid homage to his character of Jim Halpert by pulling a prank on his old co-star from “The Office,” Jenna Fischer.
Krasinski, a fan of the Boston Bruins, has been trading friendly insults with Fischer, a St. Louis Blues fan, during the Stanley Cup Finals.
For Game 7 at TD Arena in Boston, Krasinski shared a video of his guest for the evening … none other than Roy Anderson from “The Office!”
Roy was famously engaged to Fischer’s character, Pam Beesley, on the series. Of course, we all know she ended up dumping Roy for a life with Jim.
“Jenna Fischer, I know we’ve been having our ups and downs recently I just wanted to say I’m really sorry you’re not here,” Krasinski said, adding that “I was really bummed you couldn’t make it.”

While Krasinski delivered his message, he moved out of the way to reveal Roy, played by actor David Denman.
Denman looked at the camera and took a big gulp of beer while Krasinski grinned wide.
Fischer appreciated the jab, and clapped back by saying, “Well played. Just be careful he doesn’t leave you at the game,” as a nod to an episode of “The Office” when Roy left Pam at a minor league hockey game.

Other “Office” stars also got in on the action.
Angela Kinsey commented on Jim and Roy being BFFs, writing, “Whaaaat the effing whaat?!!!”
Unfortunately Fischer got the last laugh because the St. Louis Blues beat the Boston Bruins 4-1 to win the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history.
The only other person who may be happier for Jim’s loss than Pam … is Dwight Schrute.
