The Internet is freaking out over Nick Offerman, Parks and Recreation‘s Ron Swanson, going blond — a look he sported at last night’s Peabody Awards in New York City. Asked if the makeover was for a role, Offerman sent the following response to EW through his publicist: “Although I am changing my look drastically for a couple of roles this summer, I really was just looking to have more fun.”

Offerman also made headlines this spring for being bald in a video supporting the Americans for Marriage Equality project, and for sporting stubble but no mustache while promoting Casa de mi Padre with Will Ferrell in bathrobes on the fourth hour of Today. (Wow. We really care, don’t we?)
