The Last of Us series has found its Bill: Parks & Recreation actor Nick Offerman.
As per Variety, Offerman is replacing Con O'Neill, who previously had the role. O'Neill departed the project after a "scheduling conflict."
Some may have seen the recasting coming, all thanks to a prior interview with Frank actor Murray Bartlett.
On The Last of Us series, Bartlett had nothing but praise for show co-creator Craig Mazin. "The scripts he’s written blew my head off. It’s an epic show, but beautifully human and intimate," Bartlett said.
Offerman may be best known as Ron Swanson, the surly director of Pawnee's Parks & Recreation department, but he's also struck out in more dramatic roles, including on Fargo and Deadwood.
The Last of Us series is currently filming in Canada, and a handful of leaked set videos and photos have given us a sneak peek of what to expect. There’s Joel, Ellie, and Tommy in Jackson in one video, while a previous fungus-filled image marks the beginning of Joel and Ellie’s journey out west.
