'Parks and Rec's' Aubrey Plaza Begs Nick Offerman to Axe the Blonde Beard (Video)

While promoting her new film, "Safety Not Guaranteed," the actress tells THR that "it doesn't matter how he looks, he's always charming."

Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman turned heads Tuesday at the Peabody Awards when he showed up with a newly minted hair -- and beard -- do. The actor, known for his signature brown mustache, had instead opted for a full blond dye job on his locks that extended down to a full blond beard.

"Don't keep it, Nick!" exclaimed co-star Aubrey Plaza during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. She happened to be on hand the night of Offerman's big reveal (and even touched his facial hair), but says she's not quite sure why he did it. "Probably just for nothing, I don't know. He's crazy," she said.

Asked if he should keep the new look, Plaza quickly quipped, "God, no."

"It doesn't matter how he looks, he's always charming and hilarious," she added. "He could pull it off."

Speaking of the next season of Parks and Rec, Plaza said she hopes April (Plaza) and Andy (Chris Pratt) will welcome a bundle of joy in the near future, but suspects that April may be taking on more duties in the Pawnee parks department, instead.

"Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) won the election, so there's a gap in the parks department now," she explained. "I have a feeling that April is going to have to pick up a lot of that slack and take on some bigger responsibilities, so I think you'll continue to see her on the path of becoming a fully realized adult."

But before she steps back into April's shoes, Plaza can be seen opposite New Girl's Jake Johnson and The League's Mark Duplass in FilmDistrict's Safety Not Guaranteed, out June 8 nationwide.
