Nick Offerman Discusses Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe's 'Parks and Rec' Departures

Last week, it was announced that Parks and Recreation cast members Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe are departing halfway through the upcoming sixth season. Costar Nick Offerman discussed the matter in an interview with Collider today:

"We’re all sad too. I think it’s incredible that we’ve managed to keep this ridiculously talented ensemble together for as long as we have. People like Rashida and Rob and a bunch of the rest of the cast are exploding. They’ve got all kinds of opportunities going on, and so while we’re all sad that those two are moving on, I’m very grateful that we kept them around as long as [...]

ADHD Review: 'Axe Cop' Drools; 'High School USA!' is a Teenaged 'South Park'

Sneak previews of Axe Cop and High School USA! will run Sunday at 9:30 and 9:45 p.m. eastern, respectively, with all due respect, on Fox. The shows will make their official series premieres beginning at 11 p.m. Saturday, July 27th.

Fox's initial raison d'etre was to be the "alternative" to the staid, lame network programming us human beings had foolishly grown accustomed to. While Fox still reaches the youngest viewers among the "big four" channels today, cable has become the home to the more subversive, niche, talked about TV shows. Not coincidentally, cable is also where more and more viewers, and more and more money, are going. This cannot [...]

Watch a New Trailer for 'The Kings of Summer' Featuring Nick Offerman and Alison Brie

Watch Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally in the 'Kings of Summer' Trailer

Here's the trailer for a new coming of age comedy called The Kings of Summer, in which Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally play supporting roles as the parents of a couple of the lead characters. Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Comedy Central's Mash Up), the movie drew critical acclaim when it premiered at Sundance earlier this year, despite the casting director making a big mistake by casting real life married couple Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally as the parents of different kids.

Nick Offerman Made a Crazy Video with Famous People and Did a Reddit AMA

Sam Elliott to Play Ron Swanson's Rival on 'Parks and Rec'

The list of guest stars for Parks and Recreation's upcoming sixth season continues to grow. TV Line reports that mustachioed character actor Sam Elliott has signed on to play a rival/counterpart to Ron Swanson who does his same job in Pawnee's rival town of Eagleton and may or may not have a better mustache. It was previously reported that Kristen Bell would be appearing in the same episode, the season's second, as Leslie Knope's wealthier and better-dressed Eagleton equivalent.

Parks and Rec's hour-long season premiere, the show's first double-length episode, airs September 26th and it takes the gang to London where Leslie Knope is receiving a political [...]

Nick Offerman Is Writing His First Book, 'Paddle Your Own Canoe' Out October 1st

Mustachioed Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman is about to become an author. The actor/carpenter has written his first book, called Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man's Principles for Delicious Living. It's set for an October 1st release, but you can pre-order now. Paddle Your Own Canoe is a humorous memoir made up of anecdotes, rants, and life advice from Offerman, and it's probably the closest thing you'll ever get to reading a book written by Ron Swanson because he's a fictional character and fictional characters don't write books.

Hit the jump to check out the full-sized book cover and official description from the publisher:

Here's a brand new trailer for the upcoming Fox animated series Axe Cop that the network debuted at comic book gathering WonderCon this weekend. The show, based on a comic created by a five-year-old and drawn by his much older brother, will be a 15-minute series that premieres on Fox's Animation Domination, a new late night animated Saturday night block that begins July 27th. Parks and Recreation's Nick Offerman as the voice of the title character "Axe Cop," which is the most badass part of an already badass trailer.

'The Kings of Summer' Is a Very Nick Offerman-y Thing

The Kings of Summer opens in select cities today. It will make its way to the other, non-select cities at some point soon. Patience is a virtue.

The Kings of Summer seems to have come from the mind of Nick Offerman, but it was actually written by first time screenwriter Chris Galletta, a former David Letterman joke writer. The plot of the film finds three teenage boys spending the summer in the woods, building a house and trying to live a Walden type existence to get away from their annoying and overbearing parents. While this goes on, Nick Offerman, who plays Frank, the father of the lead MIA rapscallion, [...]

Watch Louis C.K. and Nick Offerman in an Old Movie Together

Here's an independent movie called Tuna from 2000 that the writer just uploaded to YouTube in its entirety. It stars Louis C.K., Nick Offerman, Jon Glaser, and a 4-year-old Angus T. Jones (he was a quarter of a man at the time). Writer Adam DeCoster put the movie on YouTube this week. It was directed by Bob Byington, who recently directed Offerman in Somebody Up There Likes Me. So, if you've ever wanted to watch Louis C.K. and Nick Offerman act in the same thing outside of C.K.'s episodes of Parks and Rec, this looks like a pretty good bet.
