Nick Offerman willing to do anything to help his Cubs -- WATCH

Question: How many bears could Ron Swanson wrestle? Answer: All of them. But how many brown bears would semi-immortal Nick Offerman wrestle if it would guarantee that his beloved Cubbies would finally win a World Series? It’s one of the many deep questions answered in New Era’s new rivalry ad with Offerman and White Sox fan, Craig Robinson. To summarize, this is how far Offerman is willing to go: ride a saddled pig to Lake Michigan in December, naked, completely shaved, with Wieners Circle chardogs as fingers. Hmmm… those chardog fingers would be a liability against the bears. Watch the latest clip below. READ FULL STORY

‘Parks and Recreation’ season finale: So, what happens if Leslie wins?

Tonight brings an end to the storied city council campaign of Leslie Knope, whose troubled election path has seen funeral-crashing bus tours, awkward pie-centric assassination attempts, bowling alley brawls and a pair of pitch-perfect competitors in guest stars Paul Rudd and Kathryn Hahn. Still, we’ll find out tonight whether Leslie manages to beat the odds and land a spot on the Pawnee city council… but then what happens?

Sure, we all want to see Leslie emerge victorious (because when Leslie is sad, the sun burns out and all the world’s puppies turn into monkfish). But if “Knope We Can” can in fact conquer–and Leslie winds up with a victory–what would that mean for season five? I’ve got a few theories on the election outcome: READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon and Amy Poehler reminisce about their favorite (fake) film collaborations -- VIDEO

Poignant, daring, and set entirely within the walls of one seriously mysterious attic, Who Is “Mark Pelpy”? — a CGI-filled thriller starring Amy Poehler and Jimmy Fallon — is one of film history’s greatest mysteries. Or, at least, it might be… if it were real.

Both Poehler and Fallon had an opportunity to exercise their improv comedy muscles on last night’s Late Night. The game: Fallon pulled out a succession of ridiculous posters for fake movies he and Poehler had supposedly starred in together. The host and his guest would then spend a few minutes riffing on each faux flick, filling in plot details and making up behind-the-scenes tidbits. (Connect Four, for example, was shot in Yugoslavia. Naturally.)

Want to know more about the pair’s fantasy epic (Chronicles of Holkroft 3: Quest for the Krimson Amulet), or their British comedy of manners (Her Royal Heiny)? Of course you do! Check out the entire bit below.


'Parks and Recreation' returns! No more reasons to glum, sugar plum!

Who’s that person who loved last night’s Parks and Recreation? That’s-a-me!  (Still hungry? Check out these deleted scenes.)

So gather around everyone — that includes you, Mr. Hamster Penis — for a quick rundown of the big moments from last night’s episode, with some helpful context:

1. Is there anything sexier than a guy who fills his house with amenities? If there is, I haven’t found it. And the most shocking aspect of my newfound appreciation for men who own soft blankets and have refrigerators full of coconut water? That Tom is the person who helped me come to this conclusion. Congrats, Tom! You’ve finally done something sort of right. Ann certainly loved it, too. Yes, that’s still happening. But for how long? (See. No. 4) READ FULL STORY

Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally join Americans for Marriage Equality campaign -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally are the latest celebrities to show their support for gay and lesbian marriage by filming a video ad for the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest LGBT civil rights organization, and its Americans for Marriage Equality project.

Offerman, who wed Mullally in 2003, begins, “You know, the night Megan and I got married, she actually thought she was marrying Cedric the Entertainer.”

“I sure did,” Mullally says.

Watch their plea below. READ FULL STORY

Play ball! Nick Offerman versus Craig Robinson in New Era's Chi-town feud


Last year, Alec Baldwin and John Krasinski acted out baseball’s most passionate feud — Yankees vs. Red Sox — in a series of New Era cap commercials. An apartment building was set ablaze, animals were abused, and pants were soiled. More important to this impartial observer, neither rival went on to win the World Series. (So begins the New Era jinx!)

This year, Major League Baseball’s official hatmaker is staying within the NBC family, but shifting the bloodsport west, to the City of Big Shoulders. In the first of what we can only hope are a series of ads, Park & Recreation‘s Nick Offerman (Cubs) and The Office‘s Craig Robinson (White Sox) exchange digs at the Chi-town corner pub, the Dividing Line. It seemed like a fair fight, but then Robinson had to go all Chicago Way on the Cubbies, crossing a line that just shouldn’t be crossed. Take a look. READ FULL STORY
