Nick Offerman was born on the 26th June 1970 in Joliet, Illinois, of Swiss and German descent. The world knows him for his acting skills, which he showed initially in his first major role as Ron Swanson in the sitcom “Parks and Recreation” on the NBC channel, for which he won the award of the Television Critics Association for Individual Achievement in Comedy. He has been active since 1997.

An American film and television actor, how rich is Nick Offerman as of late 2015? It has been estimated that the sum of Offerman’s net worth is equal to $4 million, with the main source from his successful career as an actor. Another source of his wealth is coming from his two published books. However, he is also recognized as a wood craftsman and boat builder.

Nick Offerman Net Worth $4 Million

Nick Offerman was raised in the countryside of Illinois, in a middle-class family. He is the second child of four, whose mother was a nurse and father a teacher. When he was in high school he had a great number of interests, such as sports, playing the saxophone and acting. He attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he studied acting and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1993. In the same year, his professional career began, when he founded the Defiant Theatre, a Chicago-based theatre company, with a group of other students. The next few years he spent playing on that stage, winning several theatre awards. His net worth rose slowly.

During this time he had also worked as a fight choreographer, and master carpenter. He started to make furniture and other wooden structures, such as boats. In 2008, he released a DVD with the instructions of how to build a canoe, called “Fine Woodstrip Canoe Building with Nick Offerman”.

Nevertheless, Offerman’s first major appearance came in the role of Wilks, in the movie “Going All The Way” in 1997, which helped him to gain recognition and other roles in television projects for the next 20 years, such as “ER” (1997) in the role of Rog, “Will and Grace” (2001) playing Nick the plumber, “The Practise” (2002) as Charles Rossi, “Deadwood” (2004) playing Tom Mason, “Monk” (2005) in the role of Jack Whitman, all of which added to his net worth and popularity.

However, Nick Offerman’s most successful roles were still ahead. In 2007, he was cast in one of the lead roles in the TV series named “American Body Shop”, in which he played the auto mechanic Rob. He also appeared on “The George Lopez Show”. Afterwards, in 2009 he was offered a regular role in the NBC sitcom named “Parks and Recreations” by the producers, Michael Schur and Greg Daniels. The show has been on TV ever since he got the part, until the present day. Besides that, he has appeared in “Children’s Hospital”, the Adult Swim series. He also had a role in the hit TV series “Fargo”. His net worth was rising steadily.

Apart from his TV work, he has had a number of roles in movies, such as “Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous” (2005) in the role of Karl Steele, “The Men Who Stare at Goats” (2009) as Scotty Mercer, “21 Jump Street” (2012) playing Deputy Chief Hardy. In 2012, he produced the movie “Somebody Up There Likes Me”. His net worth continued to rise.

Side by side with his acting career, Offerman was writing two semi-autobiographical books. The first was released in 2013, and is called “Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man’s Fundamentals for Delicious Living”, and the other one was published in 2015 and is named “Gumption: Relighting the Torch of Freedom with America’s Gutsiest Troublemakers”. Hopefully they added to his net worth.

Regarding Nick Offerman’s personal life, he has been married to Megan Mullally, an actress and comedian, since 2003. In 2000, the couple met each other while performing in a play in Los Angeles. Later, she played his wife Tammy in “Parks and Recreation”.

Quotes

#Quote
1Interestingly, my work as a humorist is borne solely from my work on 'Parks and Rec'. I'm a theatre actor. I never imagined I would stand on a stage and perform as myself. But once we got a few years into 'Parks and Rec'' colleges invited me to do just that. 'American Ham' certainly has a nod to Ron Swanson... If I had brought only whatever my natural attributes were, that's when you run into trouble later on, with people saying, 'You're just like Ron Swanson'. But actually not. I'm much more effeminate and weak.
2Megan and I agree that successful dancing is 99 percent the face you make. If you're at a wedding reception and you're dancing like a maniac on the dance floor? As long as you're making the right face, no one will fault you. If you're taking yourself too seriously, that's when you can look like a jackass. Even then, I would highly recommend making a jackass of yourself over sitting at your table wishing you were working it out to Kool & The Gang.
3[advice for would-be actors] Make the rest of your life happy. For me, when I started dating [wife] Megan [Mullally], my auditions became so much better, because I knew that when I came home from the audition I got to kiss her. I didn't give a damn about the audition nearly as much, and that gave me a sense of confidence.
4[re his role in The Kings of Summer (2013)] It evokes a great sense of nostalgia for all the idyllic teenage escape films of our youth. For me, it's Stand by Me (1986), The Goonies (1985) and Dead Poets Society (1989), movies about breaking away from the authoritative society of your parents or your school, finding your own way, making your own rules and then falling back into the embrace of your parents or your headmaster. And hopefully your headmaster's embrace is purely platonic.
5Something about stentorian authority figures has always made me laugh. I also noticed that lots of the performers I was working with had a big, obnoxious energy that I quickly realized I could never match - and that when they finally finished being loud, with one well-placed remark I could also achieve some sort of comic victory.
6[re his one-man show 'American Ham'] I was invited to speak at some colleges. I didn't want to be so egotistical as to show up and say: 'Thank you for the tidy appearance fee. Please feast your eyes upon me.' So I wrote a show. I like to say that I am a more foulmouthed, less-educated Garrison Keillor.
7[on his role as Ron Swanson, the government-hating bureaucrat in Parks and Recreation (2009) People have asked me if Ron would be a member of the Tea Party, and the answer is always that Ron is a committee of one, and regardless of what is going on in the country, he stands by his simple principles. If (he) had a campaign slogan it would be 'Paddle Your Own Canoe'.
