‘Parks and Recreation’ Season 6: ‘Orphan Black’ Star Tatiana Maslany To Guest

Parks and Recreation Season 6 Orphan Black Tatiana Maslany
NBC / BBC

All summer long we’ve heard about ‘Parks and Recreation‘ season 6′s upcoming effort to feature Eagleton doppelgangers for every member of the ‘Parks’ department, from Kristen Bell to Sam Elliott, but the season’s latest guest brings new meaning to the word. BBC clone drama ‘Orphan Black‘ star Tatiana Malsany will next spawn in Pawnee this year with a connection to Tom Haverford, but as whom?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Emmy-snubbed Maslany will endure a two-episode stint as Tom (Aziz Ansari)’s love interest, though firm details of the role were otherwise unavailable. Considering showrunner Mike Schur’s earlier words that Tom’s Eagleton doppelganger would be kept under wraps, Maslany’s similarly mysterious casting, and the nature of ‘Orphan Black’ itself, it isn’t hard to imagine a potential connection.

Otherwise, the new season has thus far recruited Kristen Bell, Sam Elliott, Billy Eichner and June Diane Raphael to face off as Eagleton counterparts to Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman), Donna Meagle (Retta) and April Ludgate (Aubrey Plaza).

While Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe will depart this year, Maslany joins fellow ‘Parks and Recreation’ season 6 guest stars Lucy Lawless, supermodel Heidi Klum and Henry Winkler as Jean-Ralphio (Ben Schwartz)’s father. The hour-long September 26 premiere will venture to London largely to accommodate star Chris Pratt’s shooting role in Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ while the latest episodes will continue the many threads started by last season’s finale, Tom’s mysterious “Rent-a-Swag” competitor, and April’s move to veterinary school.

What say you, ‘Parks’ and ‘Orphan Black’ fans? Which version of Tatiana Maslany do you think will pop up in Pawnee this fall?
