There are a pretty wide array of things worth looking forward to when it comes to the upcoming second season of FX’s “Fargo,” and to us one of the biggest ones is simply going to be the opportunity to see Nick Offerman in a role that is very much different than the one we’ve come to know him as in Ron Swanson.
While we have seen the actor featured in some promotional material for the show, we have admittedly not had too many opportunities (at least before now) to know specifically who he is going to play. Entertainment Weekly reports now that Nick will be taking on the part of Karl Weathers, a lawyer for one of the local towns who is a “flowery drunk” (per the actor) and also a “true con artist.” Given Nick’s talent, this will more than likely be a captivating part to watch.
Offerman also did his part to detail just the sort of shock that people tend to give him when they seem him these days sans the famous mustache that he sported on “Parks and Recreation” for so many years:
“I’ve had to learn to take it as a compliment when people say ‘I saw Nick Offerman without his mustache, and I vomited because it was so horrible.’ That means Parks and Rec was so effective that people can’t imagine me without my mustache.”
They better get used to it. We certainly cannot imagine Offerman having a similar mustache for really any other show, since we’d just see Ron in it.
