I’m slightly obsessed with Parks & Recreation at the moment. It is probably the Thursday night show I look forward to most now (what? I KNOW!)
One of the funniest characters on the show is Ron Swanson. He plays Amy Poehler’s boss on the show– a public servant who is actually quite resentful of government, and thinks Parks should be privatized.
Well, now I know the truth.
You know that moment, when you’re reading someone’s imdb page, where you scream out HOLY CRAP, THAT WAS HIM?
It is imdb’s greatest contribution to the world, that moment. Well, I’ve decided to share some of those moments with the rest of the internet.
I’ll start with my inspiration: Mr. Vincent Kartheiser, who incidentally I kind of love. (Read this. Or watch this. He’s just ADORABLE).
Some random article I was reading mentioned he was Angel’s son, and though I never watched Angel and that meant very little to me, it suddenly occurred to me that I didn’t really know what Kartheiser had been in before Mad Men, so I imdbed him.
