Nick Offerman is best known as Ron Swanson, the mustache-adorned, scotch-drinking woodsman, grumpy-yet-hilarious character he plays on NBC. Yet, Offerman is more than meets the eye.

Overall, it’s a fantastic read and you should really pick it up. More…

It should be action packed and fantastic to watch for fans and casual viewers alike. More…
