Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally's unique union is the ultimate relationship goal. To some, Offerman and Mullally may seem like an odd celebrity couple but their quirkiness is part of what makes them great. They're goofy and adorable and if they have manged to stay together in such an intense industry, perhaps there's hope for everyone else.
Offerman is best known for playing Ron Swanson and coining some pretty hilarious quotes on Parks and Recreation. Since that beloved show ended in 2015, Offerman has appeared in FX’s critically acclaimed Fargo and done voice work in films such as Sing and Ice Age: Collision Course. Mullally is well known for playing Karen Walker on Will and Grace, which has returned to the air.
One could possibly argue that Offerman and Mullally are the greatest NBC couple of all time as they've both starred on two of the network's longest-running hit shows. Moreover, it's undeniable that these two funny people seem to have found their soul mates in one another. They make each other laugh, support each other, and embrace each other’s quirks.
While some couples may avoid working together, Mullally and Offerman do the exact opposite. These two look for opportunities to join forces, resulting in hilarious cameos like the ones on Will and Grace and Parks and Recreation.
The duo also did a comedy tour together entitled Summer of 69: No Apostrophe.
Offerman and Mullally prefer to relax by doing jigsaw puzzles and listening to audio books. Mullally explained, “We take pains to have time off and just kind of lie around and do jigsaw puzzles.”
The couple also love audiobooks and they plan vacations that involve a lot of driving so they can listen without interruption.
When the two met, they were at very different points in their careers. Offerman was sleeping on a couch in someone’s basement while Mullally had just finished season two of Will and Grace.
When they got together, Offerman started going to the tapings of Will and Grace. In fact, he made it to almost every single one. In a joint interview, Mullally said, "From the third season to the end, I think there was [only] one to two tapings you had to miss." Talk about being supportive!
Offerman even landed a cameo in season four, in which he played a plumber who makes out with Mullally’s Karen Walker.
Mullally and Offerman don’t have any children together and they actually think that may have strengthened their relationship. As Mullally explained,
“I never had a burning desire to have children. But then I met Nick and I thought, ‘This is the only person I’d do this with.’ So we tried but I was a little long in the tooth for that sort of thing. But we didn't turn it into a soap opera. We tried for about a year or so, and it didn't happen [so we] took that to mean it wasn't meant to be.”
