This Shakespearean Statue Looks Exactly Like Ron Swanson

We're gonna just go ahead and keep believing it's Ron Swanson, actually

At Philly’s Walnut Street Theatre, you can find a marble statue that resembles Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman, known for playing the ultra-masculine, ultra-meat loving Ron Swanson. Behold:

As MTV News points out, this statue was actually erected in honor of Shakespearean actor Edwin Forrest, who began his career in 1820. Forrest does have some things in common with Swanson, though: a love of woodworking and a cantankerous demeanor, for example.

At this point, the theatre might as well just give in and tell people it’s Ron Swanson. Just put a plate of bacon and a bottle of whiskey beside it and it’s ready to go.
