Jim O’Heir has been working for more than two decades as an actor, with over 144 IMDB credits, including appearances on shows like Friends, Malcolm In The Middle, and ER. O’Heir is probably best known for his turn as Garry/Jerry/Larry/Terry Gergich on Parks And Recreation. In honor of his new movie, Middle Man, and just because we wanted to do something nice for the perennial Pawnee parks-department punching bag, we took Jim O’Heir to the happiest place on Earth, local animal shelter PAWS Chicago, and let him play with some puppies and kittens.

Thanks again to our friends at PAWS Chicago. All the animals you see in the video are up for adoption on the shelter’s website.
