Nick Offerman on Why He Didn't Ask His Wife for Advice on Hosting the 2016 Webby Awards

Originally posted 05/16/2016 09:20AM

Nick Offerman knows it would be "wise" to run some of his jokes for his hosting gig at the 20th Annual Webby Awards by his ultra-funny wife Megan Mullally, but he decided not to for a very good reason.

"We're actually working on a film together right now in Austin," the Parks and Recreation alum, 45, tells PEOPLE. "She's working quite a bit and so I'm trying to stay out of her head at the moment."

He continued, "In a relationship, you have to know when to take and when to give. If your spouse is playing a role in a film, then you try to stay out of their mojo so they have all their faculties as available as possible."

Rob Lowe 2020? The Grinder Star Dishes Which Career He Would Have Pursued Beyond Acting If He'd 'Had the Guts'

Originally posted 09/29/2015 12:45PM

Rob Lowe returns to TV in all of his heartthrob glory on Tuesday night as the actor stars alongside Fred Savage in Fox's new comedy The Grinder.

"The show is about a beloved television icon coming to terms with the end of his eight-year hit legal drama ending and realizing that what he really wants is a normal, authentic family life," Lowe tells PEOPLE about his character on the show.

"He decides he's going to join the family business which is practicing law, without actually knowing anything about the actual law."

The premise wasn't a stretch for the former political drama star, who admits to feeling similarly inspired to make a career switch after working on The West Wing.

"I have to be honest, if I had the guts to do it, I would love to after having played Sam Seaborn on The West Wing for so long to take a sabbatical and be in the trenches and have a presidential campaign."

The news caps off a gloomy summer of one relationship demise after another. But fans of Poehler and Kroll can be comforted in knowing they'll always have these hilarious, raunchy (and therefore NSFW) scenes of them together to look back on.

Kroll appeared on Parks and Recreation as The Douche (née Howard Tuttleman), a potty-mouthed shock-jock who caused Leslie Knope (Poehler) a lot of headaches. The actress reciprocated by guest-starring on his sketch comedy series Kroll Show in 2014.
