Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) revealed that he would be guest starring in an episode of season 25 of The Simpsons in an interview with the A.V. Club on Oct. 10.
The 43-year-old who plays Ron Swanson on Parks and Rec, told the publication about how he was a fan of the show and grateful for the opportunity.
"I recorded an episode of The Simpsons, and that was such an incredible life dream for me that I had kind of lost sight of," he said. "For a couple of decades, I've been ape-shit about that show, and I thought, 'It would be so amazing to be on that show, but that could never possibly happen.' And today it happened, and I was incredibly on cloud nine. And I called Mike Schur, and I said, 'Once again, I have to thank you. Without your generosity and tenacity in casting me in this job, this would not have happened.'"
The comedian also recently released his memoir, Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man's Fundamentals for Delicious Living, on Oct. 1. In the book Offerman writes about growing up in the cornfields of Illinois, his enduring marriage to comedienne and actress, Megan Mullaly (Will and Grace), and the idea of manliness.
In Simpsons related news, it was announced that a major character will killed off on the show and that the writers are currently working on that story.
The show's executive producer, Al Jean, announced news of a character leaving the show during a conference call with reporters earlier in October.
"We're actually working on a script where a character will pass away," Jean said. "I'll give a clue that the actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character, but I won't say who it is."
