‘Parks and Recreation’s’ Nick Offerman: Manly-Man

Big mustachioed actor Nick Offerman has been the surprise breakout star — alongside Amy Poehler — of NBC’s quirky comedy “Parks and Recreation.” Offerman plays Ron Swanson –red meat-eating, government-hating, manly-man who works for the show’s little fictional city of Pawnee, Indiana. The gruff government worker and libertarian who detests government. The director of parks and recreation who wants to shut down public parks. Privatize. Offerman’s macho, hunting, wood-working Ron Swanson is a hot item. Up next On Point: actor and ambivalent manly-man icon, Nick Offerman.
