Fans loved to see Nick Offerman portraying "Ron Swanson" in Parks and Recreation from 2009 to 2015! But what has he been up to since the series ended? Luckily for you we have all the information!

Who doesn't remember Ron Swanson? He is the sarcastic director of the Parks and Recreation department in the fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana in Parks and Recreation, who describes himself as "a simple man who likes pretty dark-haired women and breakfast food."

Portrayed by Nick Offerman from 2009 to 2015, the character is also known for his passion for food, and for his lack of interest on interacting with other people, such as he says during the second episode of the third season of the show: "I once worked with a guy for 3 years and never learned his name. Best friend I ever had.”
