“Parks and Recreation” star Nick Offerman — the man behind grizzled anti-bureaucrat bureaucrat Ron “Effing” Swanson — is the other big winner in exec producer Mike Schur’s (photo, right) new deal with NBC Universal.
Under Schur’s new pact, he’ll remain at the helm of “Parks and Rec” for many years to come.
“It’s the best job I can imagine,” Schur said. “I don’t want to go anywhere else. I’m so attached to this show now, and have come to care about it so much.”
That should mean a continued nice, steady paycheck for Offerman, who can then plow his earnings into his other love: Woodworking.
And Schur is even taking some of that new deal money to buy his 2-year-old son a chest of drawers (perhaps similar to above, from Offerman’s website) — handcrafted by Offerman himself.
