Nick Offerman’s Better Half Deserves Recognition For Her Invaluable Contribution To the Casting Of ‘The Last of Us’

Nick Offerman’s performance as Bill in the third episode of HBO’s The Last of Us had us all utterly amazed – so much that it could potentially earn him an Emmy! Although best known for comedic roles, this proves his range is far beyond expectations. But if not for Megan Mullally, who encouraged her husband to accept the part, we may never have seen this incredible depiction by Nick Offerman.

Even though Craig Mazin had a preexisting relationship with Offerman through their sons’ baseball teams and was actively searching for him to fill the role, it seemed impossible to squeeze in the shoot around his busy workload. That’s when Mullally came into play.

As the season three premiere of Party Down aired, Megan Offerman opened up to The Hollywood Reporter about her family life. She divulged what went on in the past within their household:

“His schedule was really packed, and he loved the script, but he was just so busy. And I was like, ‘Well let me read it,’ and I was like, ‘You’re doing it.’ So then he did.”

It appears that we owe her thanks for setting up Bill’s success. After she stepped in and unofficially acted as her spouse’s agent, jokingly requesting to receive a share of the profits, everything fell into place.

“I mean hello, where’s my 10 percent?

Nick Offerman won’t be back for The Last of Us’ second season due to the show’s new direction; however, we can anticipate more exciting casting news as development continues. As a result of its success, there has been an official greenlight given for a sequel that will follow events from 2020 PlayStation 4 game The Last Of Us Part II and introduce many fresh characters – one of whom may have already appeared in the latest episode.

Let’s hope Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann can keep up their streak of perfect casting, but only time will tell if they manage to grab someone as amazing as Nick Offerman for the role of Bill.

The Last of Us airs Sundays on HBO.
