Nick Offerman

Nick Offerman has found his way into the hearts of many as the carnivorous libertarian Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation. Nick started his career the way many have, in the Chicago improv scene. Prior to his work on Parks and Recreation Nick had a number of guest roles in television shows such as King of Queens, Will & Grace, Gilmore Girls, and Deadwood. He’s also a skilled woodworker, because apparently being an amazing actor and improviser isn’t enough.
