Screencapped from an episode of “The Mortified Sessions,” here’s little Ron Swanson on his Little League team.
An UPROXX tipster shared these photos of Nick Offerman in high school, as well as this perfect description of it’s origin:
The photos are from Minooka High School 1986/87. I did not go there or know Nick, I am way too young. The photos are from a co-worker who went there but wasn’t in the same class as Nick. I had the Swanson Pyramid of Greatness hanging at my desk, when my co-worker walked by and said he knew Nick Offerman and they went to high school together. I didn’t believe him, so as proof he brought in his yearbook. He said Nick and him weren’t friends, but everyone at school knew who Nick was. He was popular, a very nice guy and in every school play.
Nick and his college roommate, Joe Foust.
Did you know that Nick Offerman was on The West Wing? He was!
Here he is.
Nick met fellow actress Megan Mullally in 2000, when they were in a play together. They were married in 2003.
Offerman even appeared on Mullally’s biggest show, Will & Grace, as a plumber who Karen (Mullally) kisses because her husband wants her to sleep with other people.
Here he is in 2004’s November: a movie about a crazy Courtney Cox. He played a police officer.
In 2005 his Sin City cameo as “Shlubb” is practically unrecognizable.
“Mullally’s hubby, TV actor Nick Offerman, escorted his wife to the opening night bash.”
IMDB has some of the best photos of Offerman—which we assume are his headshots.
While his wife was working on the Broadway production of Young Frankenstein, Offerman decided to build a canoe. He mentioned that he was an actor when he ordered the plans for the boat, and the company asked him to do create a how-to video while he built it.
To be completely honest, we cannot figure out what year this picture is from but we desperately wanted to include it somewhere.
Here’s the Ron Swanson we all know and love. Offerman joined the cast of NBC’s Parks and Recreation in 2009—and soon, his famous deadpan attitude and illustrious mustache became legendary.
