The actor revealed furthermore that not getting the part somewhere liberated him as an actor and a director too. Not being contractually obligated to play a character year after year would have to some extent bound him to only work as an actor and not allow him to explore directing and writing. John Krasinski believes it certainly that A Quiet Place wouldn't have happened if he got the role of Captain America.
