Offerman talks about how he got involved with the movie The Kings of Summer:
I’m crazy about the movie. It’s [director Jordan Vogt-Roberts’] first feature. He’s 29, and if I didn’t love him so much, I’d punch him in the mouth. And the cinematographer, Ross Riege, is his cameraman – he’s been making comedy shorts and then he shits this thing out, I’m so tickled to be a part of it. I just was taken by the script by Chris Galletta, I think it’s really a brilliant piece of writing, because his humor is so finely wrought, wonderfully dry and strange, which is certainly my own wheelhouse. Meanwhile there’s this wonderfully emotional story laced through the film that gives it such a great heart, and makes me feel really nostalgic for the John Hughes films of my youth.
