LOS ANGELES (WISH) — Actor John Krasinski traded in his trademark suit this week for a different look.

Krasinski, best known for portraying Jim Halpert on the long-running sitcom “The Office,” went all out during his lip syncing performance of Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary” on the new show “Lip Sync Battle.”

Krasinki began his performance of the Turner hit in a suit, but as the song reached the infectious and catchy chorus, the suit came off and a fringe dress was revealed.

A new report says NBC turned down “Lip Sync Battle,” which is produced by “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon. So, Fallon and his production partners took the show to competitor Spike TV.
