It’s hard not to build a mythology around Parks and Rec’s Nick Offerman when he just keeps overperforming as a human being like this. In an interview with E! Online, Offerman replied to a question about how much his wife Megan Mullally has influenced his career by saying: “Meeting Megan pretty much made my life amazing. I was pretty happy biding my time looking for my dream job, and she by far is the most supportive element of my life. She really always kept my confidence up and she coaches me in my auditions. When I finally got the part of Ron Swanson, I was so grateful all of these other crappy TV shows that I had tested for [didn’t hire me]—I was like, thank God, the universe saved me for this job. I could not have written a part that was so much my dream part. I could not have even fathomed that it exists.” Allergies! I poked my eye with a pencil! My tear ducts don’t operate properly! Don’t look at me!
