Krasinski brings ‘Promised Land’ screening to Boston

It’s easy to tell when a Krasinski walks into a room. They are quite tall, and they have nice hair. When one of actor John Krasinski’s brothers arrived at the Revere Hotel’s Theatre 1 on Wednesday for a private screening of John’s new movie “Promised Land,” spectators buzzed about the strong resemblance. The brothers looked rather identical, in similar winter coats.

Newton native John, who returned home this weekend for the screening (and Thanksgiving), says his brothers are actually taller than him, but that doesn’t stop him from slumping in his chair during movies. After introducing “Promised Land” — a drama he wrote with Cambridge’s own Matt Damon — Krasinski slid down in his seat next to his parents so that he didn’t block anyone’s view. “I learned it from my brothers,” he admitted.
