Parks and Recreation features one of the finest comedic casts of any American comedy in recent times, but for me the real star of the show is Nick Offerman’s Ron Swanson. Offerman is given the freedom to show off his incredibly dry comedy stylings in the programme, so with that in mind he seems a good fit for a role in Diabo Cody’s directorial debut rumoured to be titled Lamb Of God.
Offerman will star alongside Julianne Hough, Russell Brand, Octavia Spencer, Holly Hunter and Phil Austin.
Hough will play Lamb, a devoutly religious young woman who renounces her faith following a plane crash that leaves her disfigured. She leaves her home in Washington DC and heads to Vegas to enjoy a life of sin, where she meets and befriends some locals who help her realise that there may be a less extreme way to enjoy life.
At this point there’s no word on who Offerman will play, but Brand is down to play a bartender named William, and Spencer a craps dealer named Loray.
Offerman will next be seen in 21 Jump Street on the 16th March, and Will Ferrell’s Casa De Mi Padre which doesn’t have a UK release date at present.
