'Sexiest Man Alive 2011': Which TV Stars Made the Cut?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 17th 2011 6:05AM
Bradley Cooper, People's 'Sexiest Man Alive 2011'Bradley Cooper's been celebrating being named as 'People' magazine's 'Sexiest Man Alive 2011.' After saying his first thought on hearing the news was, "My mother is going to be so happy," the buff 'Hangover' star joked "I'm waiting for Dax Shepard to come out, and that it's an episode of 'Punk'd.'"

Cooper added: "I think it's really cool that a guy who doesn't look like a model can have this. ... I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying."

So which TV stars have been deemed hot enough to join Cooper on the list? Well, there are some conventional hotties like 'Luther' star Idris Elba, 'Community's Joel McHale and 'Game of Thrones' glowering Horse Lord Jason Momoa, but there are also a few guys who are, well, perhaps less obviously hot in the conventional sense.

Nick Offerman Was Living in a Basement When He Met Wife Megan Mullally (VIDEO)

Nick Offerman, 'Late Show with David Letterman'While most people would consider living as a starving artist in the basement of a bunch of fellow artists perhaps one of the roughest times of their lives, it turned out to be the best possible situation for Nick Offerman to be in. On 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) he talked about why.

It was around 2000 and Offerman was doing a play at a local theater alongside Megan Mullally. This was about two years into 'Will & Grace,' though, so most everyone else there was too intimated to talk to her.

"I didn't have a television, so I didn't know any better," he explained. "I went up to her and said, 'Hi, how you doing? You're really funny.'"

Ron Swanson's Facial Hair Takes Center Stage in 'Parks & Recreation' Season 4

Ron Swanson, Parks and RecreationWhen Season 4 of 'Parks and Recreation' kicks off, expect a supporting player to shine: Ron Swanson's prodigious facial hair.

Yes, that epic and oh-so manly mustache will be featured prominently in the fourth season of the hit NBC comedy.

"The current plan is for Ron's facial hair to go through a lot of changes in the first few episodes," Mike Schur, 'Parks and Rec.' executive producer, told TV Guide. "He'll have several different looks in the first few episodes if things stay the way they're planned. Honestly, it wasn't our goal -- to send Ron's facial hair through its own arc -- but we pitched these stories for him involving Tammy 1 and all these other things and we found ourselves in this funny situation where a lot of the ways that we wanted to tell the story of what was happening to him involved his facial hair -- as it should, probably, when you have someone with facial hair as distinctive as Nick's."

Megan Mullally Talks 'Party Down' and Returning to 'Parks & Recreation'

by Kim Potts, posted Apr 22nd 2010 7:00PM
Yes, Jane Lynch has gone off to more 'Glee'-ful pastures, but thanks to new star Megan Mullally, the second season of Starz' buzzworthy comedy 'Party Down' (premieres April 23, 10PM ET), isn't missing a single drop of the funny.

Mullally, the two-time 'Will & Grace' Emmy winner, joins the Party Down catering crew -- as Lydia Dunfree, a recently-divorced mom who has moved to Los Angeles so her daughter, Escapade, can become the next big kid star. Yes, that's right, Escapade ... sounds like something Mullally's Karen Walker would name her kid.

And speaking of the scene-stealing 'Will & Grace' character, Mullally will also soon bring her iconic TV alter ego to theater stages. 'Karen: The Musical' is currently in development, and Mullally talked to AOL TV about Karen's return to pop culture (and the Karen spin-off series that could have been), her 'Party' days, her gig as the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spokeswoman, guest-starring with hilarious hubby Nick Offerman on 'Parks and Recreation' and which 'Saturday Night Live' star she helped discover.

Al Roker Gets Crude With Nick Offerman on 'Today' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Apr 15th 2010 3:30PM
During an appearance on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC), Nick Offerman of 'Parks and Recreation' discussed his hobby of woodworking and a nude New York magazine photo spread in which he appeared with wife Megan Mullally. Seeing an opportunity for a double entendre, Al Roker then commented on Offerman's "wood." You can probably guess how things went from there.

"Just missed showing the wood," Roker said, after viewing the naked photo.

"I'm sorry," Ann Curry apologized. "The show was fine until that moment."

Watch the video after the jump.

Nick Offerman on Being Ron "F@%&in'" Swanson

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 11th 2010 2:01PM
Nick Offerman of Parks and RecreationWhen viewers and critics first saw the government-hating parks director Ron Swanson on 'Parks and Recreation,' they didn't quite know what to make of him. Is he just a hard-ass? Or was there more to him?

Well, as the show has improved so has viewers' opinion of Ron, played by Nick Offerman. In the first half of 'Parks and Rec's' second season, Swanson has become a favorite of fans and critics; we've seen his love of breakfast food, his ability to build a small harp while drinking, and his secret life as smooth jazz stylist Duke Silver. And the 'stache... oh, the 'stache. It's the best one on primetime since Tom Selleck's.

When I was at the NBC party at the TCAs last month, I spoke to Offerman about how Swanson has developed, having his real-life wife (Megan Mullally) play Swanson's ex, and if we're going to see more of Swanson's jazzy alter ego.

Nick Offerman Really Does Have a Woodshop

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 8th 2010 5:02PM
Ron Swanon in his woodshop on 'Parks and Recreation'
On last week's 'Parks and Recreation' we saw Ron Swanson prove to Leslie how much of a tolerance he has for alcohol: he finished building a small harp in his woodshop while downing a bunch of whiskey. Power tools, precise measurements, minute tuning, the whole works. He even showed her photographic evidence (above).

When I spoke to Nick Offerman at the press tour, he told me that the show would be getting a look inside Swanson's woodshop. When he talked about the prospect, his eyes lit up and said, "I'm very excited about it." Well, now we know why: Offerman owns his own woodshop, and has a website full of examples of his and his crew's work. They make some very nice furniture, and they also build small structures and canoes.

Parks & Recreation: Rock Show (season finale)

Parks and Recreation
(S01E06)
Ah, so that's how they're going to do it. While the pit was still the underlying thrust of the episode, the stories were more about the characters and relationships. And realizing even more what a big dumb sap Mark is. It's really more a testament of Leslie's own insecurities and issues that she's so hung up on him because he is even more lame than Tom. At least Tom is charismatic and charming, in his own creepy way. Mark is just creepy, a lot older than he seems to think and kind of a doofus.

Parks & Recreation: The Banquet

Aziz Ansari of Parks and Recreation(S01E05) Man, Leslie Knope is a dope. But Tom is the bomb! Okay, I'm sorry. There's no excuse for that kind of crap. Still, though, Tom was hilarious in his speech to Leslie's mother, who will always be Jericho's Gail Green to me, at the banquet. Certainly it was smoother than Leslie's. But then Ron's speech of facts was better than Leslie's painful attempt at name-dropping.

It's amazing that Leslie and her mother are related, considering how vastly different they are. Her mother is shrewd and calculating, and clearly willing to muck around in the dirt to further her own agenda (i.e. a politician), while Leslie is an optimistic do-gooder who's more heart than smart ... oh crap, I did it again, didn't I?
