Why Adam Scott Was Left Off Entertainment Weekly’s Parks and Rec Cover

Yesterday I wondered about the odd exclusion of Adam Scott from the photo on the cover of the latest Entertainment Weekly. Here’s the man himself with an explanation:

Being a lifelong New Yorker (I grew up in Northern California and live in Los Angeles), when Entertainment Weekly called and begged me to be on the cover of their magazine (the show I’m on, Parks and Rec, was going to be on the cover, and thus I would ride its coattails) and that the shoot would be anywhere but Manhattan, I, of course, said no (yes).
To even consider leaving my fair city (I’ve never lived here) makes me literally vomit (not literally, actually not at all). So the decision was easy: I’d triumphantly stay in New York (I’m working on a movie here, and due to a giant storm, all flights were cancelled) while my fellow castmates mug it up in EW (I’m a subscriber). Victory (devastation)!!!
Mine (yours),
Nick Offerman (Adam Scott)
