He killed in the audition, but the network wanted someone more “handsome,” so they cast Paul Schneider (also worth nothing: Jim O’Heir, who plays Jerry, originally auditioned for the role of Ron Swanson). He’s just too fat.” He lost 30 pounds in two and a half months in order to get the part (they wouldn’t sign him until he lost the weight).

He began losing the weight in the first six episodes of season three, which were actually filmed at the end of season two (because of Poehler’s pregnancy), so in the 7th episode, he was suddenly much thinner.

So I had to dig deeper to find some interesting tidbits on the cast of “Parks and Recreation” for today’s Mindhole Blowers, which mostly amounted to spending 8-10 hours over the weekend listening to cast members of “Parks and Rec” on various podcasts.

I don’t mind saying, it’s one of the better ways to spend your weekend.

"It has caused more Lagavulin whiskey to course through my veins than any well-stocked public house." In her book, Amy Poehler describes how fluid their friendships were.

I don't think it's the heaviest, but certainly has its moments.From all of those podcasts, I have pulled some of the more interesting, lesser known fact nuggets about the cast, and because it’s such a time intensive process, I’m breaking up the “Parks and Rec” Mindhole Blowers into two parts (I’ll run the second part before the season six premiere). Jeff Garlin’s (Curb Your Enthusaism) wife was Nick Offerman’s agent. Amy Poehler is only the third “Saturday Night Live” cast member to get a promotion to full cast member in her first season (Harry Shearer and Eddie Murphy were the others). When Nick Offerman began theater school, he was terrible, but because he was the only guy in his school (of “sissyfied men”) that knew how to use a goddamn hammer, they’d let him do the occasional scene in exchange for building the set. During theater school, Nick Offerman completely gave up watching sports to catch up on reading, theater, and film. Nick Offerman is actually a skilled saxaphone player, but the writers did not know that when they wrote him a sax-playing alter ego in “Parks and Rec.” 15.The first part deals with only Nick Offerman, Amy Poehler, and Chris Pratt (I also listened to an hour long interview with Aziz Ansari, but pulled nothing of real interest from it, other than he’s a very funny guy). When Amy Poehler met Nick Offerman for the first time, in 1993, he had his head shaved into red horns because he had a part in a play of Clockwork Orange. Nick auditioned for Curb Your Enthusiasm more than anyone else because of Garlin and his wife, but he never got a role in the series (Garlin felt terrible about it). Nick Offerman was the first choice of everyone — Poehler the network — for Ron Swanson. Poehler made her “SNL” debut on the first episode after 9/11. In 2009, before “Parks and Recreation” debuted, Deadline’s Nikke Finke published portions of the focus group on the show, most of which was very negative. You still use these.” Nikki I’m surprised you’d publish this. Amy Poehler sent Jeff Garlin a bottle of wine the very next day. Growing up on a farm, the entry level position for Nick Offerman was shoveling pig sh*t, which was actually an honor to get. After Offerman began getting semi-regular work, he made a vow that he would never appear in a procedural, especially one of the “CSI.” However, he had been friends with Gary Sinise, and Sinise had asked him to audition for a role, and he reluctantly ended up doing it as a favor instead of taking a guest role in “The Office,” which turned out to be the best thing to happen in his career, because with “Parks and Rec,” they wanted an unknown, and the role in “The Office” might have disqualified him. One year, a writer from “Will & Grace” wrote Offerman a part that was very specific to Nick Offerman: The character was a naval intelligence officer with a moustache.The cast and crew filmed the scene in Biden's ceremonial office on the White House grounds."He was charming and funny and a true pro — he didn't even flinch when Leslie slightly leaned in for a kiss," Amy Poehler says.
