Patton Oswalt Is One Of Us!

by Nick Steele

You always wonder if the characters that actors portray are similar to their real life personalities. In this case it turns out that Patton Oswalt truly IS a NERD! He always showed signs of nerdom but you can never really tell if you don't know that person personally. 

However, during a filming of Parks & Recreation he was required to participate in a philibuster. Where he would just stand up there and talk because the law says he can't be removed if he is still talking to the panel.
