How does your favorite TV character stack up against their literary counterpart? Flavorwire did 10 fantasy pairings of such characters, and came up with some insights into their "wildly similar" personalities.
Take, for instance, Ron Swanson of Parks and Recreation and Ernest Hemingway:
Is there anyone more alike in the cultural realm than Ron Swanson and Ernest Hemingway? Yes, each has some rather notable facial hair, but the similarities go far beyond that. Both are rugged individualists with gruff manners who — though they have desk jobs — prefer such manly pastimes as hunting and fishing. Just as Hemingway’s prose style is terse, Swanson hates to waste time on small talk. And both are sweeter and more cuddly than they’d like to admit. Isn’t that right, Papa Bear?
