Nick Offerman

With Nick Nolte and Robert Redford teaming up for the adaptation of Bill Bryson's memoir A Walk in the Woods we were already pretty excited. Then the addition of Borat director Larry Charles sweetened the deal even more. However, a new report from Deadline reports He's Just Not That Into You and "The Office" director Ken Kwapis will be at the helm, so we're a little less interested. But with that news also comes the addition of Nick Offerman ("Parks & Recreation"), Kristen Schaal ("Bob's Burgers"), Emma Thompson and Mary Steenburgen in the supporting cast, though we're not sure who they're playing.

For those who don't know, Redford is playing Bill Bryson, an aging travel writer an Iowa native who has been living in England for 20 years, as he aims to reconnect with America by hiking the 2,100 mile Appalachian Trail. But his connection with the homeland isn't smooth as he learns some hard lessons about being a woodsman, falling into plenty of mishaps and problems, many hilarious conundrums. Along the way he encounters a group of terrible Boy Scouts and a seemingly always lost old man named Chicken John. Making things worse is Bryson's grumpy hiking partner Katz, a reformed substance abuser and high school friend who he's been avoiding for years. With Redford and Nolte in the leads, we're anxious to see how this turns out and hope it's not a generic, geriatric flick like Last Vegas.

While I love Nolte, Offerman fits the Katz part much better! Who DOES he play in this move?
