James “Jim” Duncan Halpert (born October 1, 1978) is a fictional character in the U. version of the television sitcom The Office, portrayed by John Krasinski.
The character is based on Tim Canterbury from the original version of The Office.
Though Jim loves to play pranks on Dwight, he is shown to have some things in common with his nemesis, such as a knowledge of comic books and an appreciation for the sci-fi/fantasy genre; as demonstrated in "Take Your Daughter To Work Day" when Jim and Dwight correct Michael on details about Superman and Aquaman. Prior to getting engaged to Pam, Jim previously drove a 2008 Saab 9-3, 2006 Saab 9-2x and 2005 Toyota Corolla. He is adamant throughout the series about his job as a salesman at Dunder Mifflin Paper being a temporary one, saying, "Right now, this is just a job. And if this were my career, I'd have to throw myself in front of a train." This outlook is most apparent in the elaborate pranks that he plays on his workmates, primarily Dwight, as well as his sarcastic remarks and facial expressions to the film crew and his provoking comments during often ridiculous employee meetings.
However, he succeeds professionally and is consistently one of the best salesmen.
