Ron Swanson is Axe Cop. Because of Course He's Axe Cop.

People who like awesome stuff were already aware that Fox is producing an animated series based on the best thing the human mind has ever, and likely will ever concieve: Axe Cop, a comic created by a five year-old, drawn by his 29 year-old older brother, starring a mustachioed titan of masculinity who dispenses hickory-handled justice upon those who do evil, like Pretzelhead, the Vampire Man-Baby Kid, and Mr. Doo-Doo.

Today, thanks to contractual obligations clearing themselves up, Fox was able to announce that yes, showrunner Nick Weidenfeld (Children's Hospital) made the only acceptable choice to voice Axe Cop; Ron Swanson himself, Nick Offerman.

But that's not the only bit of good news. Over on the Axe Blog, co-creator Ethan Nicolle broke down the rest of the cast, which includes some of alternative comedy's best (Patton Oswalt, Ken Marino, Peter Serafinowicz, Rob Heubel); alongside some serious heavy hitters, like Breaking Bad's Gus Fring and Mike Ehrmantraut (Giancarlo Esposito and Jonathan Banks) Mad Men's Pete Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser), and finally, Michael Fucking Madsen.

The best animated show television will ever behold premieres July 27th, 11pm, on Fox.
