Actor Nick Offerman is best known as the mustachioed boss Rick Swanson on "Parks and Recreation," and in the trailer for "Somebody Up There Likes Me" he sticks to the deadpan, situational comedy he does so well. An existential comedy about the small successes and failures that make up our existence, the film also stars Keith Pulson as his best friend and Jess Weixler as the beautiful girl who comes into their lives.
