S2E07 – Rejecting Nick Offerman

Show Notes

Nick Offerman is known for his role as the moustachioed, woodworking, saxophone-playing boss of Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation. But before growing out his moustache, Offerman was a struggling actor, living in an unfinished basement and fighting depression after 12 straight years of Hollywood rejection. This week, we tell Offerman’s story. From being told to be more “conventional” to playing one of the most iconic and unique characters of all time.
