Call Nick Offerman If You’ve Got A Nude Scene

Offerman’s manhood was once a hot commodity in the Chicago theater scene — before it was one everywhere
Call Nick Offerman If You’ve Got A Nude Scene

During his days as a live performer, Nick Offerman was known as the go-to guy to strip down onstage should a production call for some extra skin — the saxophone wasn’t the only horn Duke Silver liked to show off.

To some demographics — specifically, older women, bear hunters and Megan Mullally — the Parks and Recreation star is the apotheosis of masculine sexuality. His burly physique, famously furry upper lip and magnificently manly disposition ooze traditional charm as if Clark Gable was an able carpenter. Offerman is a veritable and virile sex symbol to those who like their meat red and their whiskey neat.

And, during his time acting in the Chicago theater community, Offerman’s “offerings” were for-rent and in-demand. As the actor revealed during Monday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he, Paul Dano and Seth Rogen promoted their most recent film Dumb Money, Offerman and his south-of-the-border Swanson were both beloved guns for hire long before he was a household name.

“In Chicago theater, I was known as, if you need a guy to get naked, call Offerman,” the actor recalled when the subject of nude scenes became the topic of conversation. In Dumb Money, Dano and his co-star Pete Davidson supposedly strip down for a nude run — but, with all due respect to those two, Offerman’s full monty is a more intriguing affair, given that Davidson’s dongle has already been seen by half the women in Hollywood.

When Offerman made the move to the West Coast, his expertise in exposure quickly landed him new work. “My first play I did in Los Angeles was on a thrust stage,” Offerman explained with explicit phrasing. “(It was) a Mike Leigh Play, and the lights come up at the top of the show and I’m down center naked, and I guzzle two cans of Guinness to start the show. And opening night, the lights come up, and I drink my Guinness, and (there’s) two little old ladies in the front row, one says to the other, ‘I have to get my glasses!’”

“That’s all you can hear in the silent theater,” Offerman remembered. “And I said, ‘It’s about breadth, lady!’”
