Ron Swanson IS… AXE COP


Oh my god. Do you remember the announcement of the Axe Cop cartoon? the one that’s supposed to be part of Fox’s upcoming Saturday animation block? The one that’s supposed to compete with Adult Swim and will begin sometime next summer? Well, Fox just released this Halloween-themed Axe Cop short, and…

…Axe Cop is voice by Nick fucking Offerman. Ran Swanson from Parks and Rec. I don’t know if this is just a “pilot,” or if Offerman will still be voicing Axe Cop when it starts airing regularly, but this is the best goddamn casting since Robert Downey Jr. was hired to be Tony Stark. Seriously, I’m going to need to start a “Thing That Are Perfect” tag just for this. (Via MTV Geek)
