Turns out John Krasinski is just as big of a trickster as his character on "The Office."

In a recent interview with Mashable, the show's hairstylist Kim Ferry recalled the "Quiet Place" star, now 40, wanted to appear in the film "Leatherheads" while still working on the third season of "The Office."

The catch: Krasinski would have to cut his hair for the role, and Greg Daniels, the comedy's showrunner, had vetoed the cut.

The actor leaned into his character -- office funnyman Jim Halpert -- and recruited Ferry to pull a fast one on Daniels, 57, buy tricking him into letting Krasinski wear a wig.

"I'm thinking like, 'Uh-huh. He doesn't know John's wearing [the wig] right now,'" said the hairstylist. "So it made me feel better. And I was like, 'Well, that's interesting.'"

Ferry said she peeked into Daniels' office, where she saw Krasinski had taken the wig off and set it in front of the writer.

"The first thing Greg said was, 'Wow. You guys have balls,' and then goes, 'But I have to say I didn't see that coming,'" said Ferry.

Ultimately, Daniels allowed for Krasinski to use the wig and he was able to appear in "Leatherheads."

"It was worth it cause he really wanted to do that movie and I didn't want to disappoint him," said Ferry. "It was nerve-wracking, but it turned out okay. Thank God."

A rep for Daniels did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.
