Parks and Recreation
'Parks and Recreation' has been on a hot streak of casting this season (which we pray isn't a sign of it being the last), yesterday casting Jason Schwartzman as a troubled Pawnee resident, and previous episodes featuring the likes of numerous real-life politicians, Lucy Lawless and Christie Brinkley, so who's next? Fresh off her 'Girls' and 'Raising Hope' appearances, former 'SNL' star Jenny Slate will be the next famous face making her way through the Parks department, as none other than Jean Ralphio (Ben Schwartz) twin sister!
Whether or not 'Parks and Recreation' season 5 proves to be the last outing for Leslie Knope, Ron Swanson and their 'Parks' department co-workers, the fifth season might be its most star-studded to date. Joining the ranks of numerous real-life politicians, Lucy Lawless and Christie Brinkley, frequent Wes Anderson player and former 'Bored to Death' star Jason Schwartzman is the next famous face to show up in Pawnee. So, who will the former 'Rushmore' star play?
'Parks and Recreation' has had some great guest stars in its five years on the air, most recently with 'Breaking Bad' star Jonathan Banks, but can anything top the heavenly hotness of Christie Brinkley? Certainly not House Speaker Newt Gingrich, but you'd better believe he's going to try This Thursday's "Ron and Diane" will introduce Brinkley as Jerry Gergitch's long-discussed wife Gayle, as seen in the clip below, but what's this about Newt Gingrich scoring a surprise cameo?
While many couples jokingly maintain a "celebrity sex list" of stars with whom it's okay to cheat on their significant other, 'Parks and Recreation's' Ben Wyatt may come to regret Leslie Knope's. The character has long been vocal about her fixation on Vice President Joe Biden, an attraction that will finally be put to the test as the current re-elected VP will guest in an upcoming episode! But with his renewed busy schedule, just what appearance could the Vice President make, and how will Leslie Knope react?
We've seen many a fantastically perfect casting over the years, but perhaps none more-so than this. The moment that FOX announced it would develop an animated series around surrealist comic 'Axe Cop,' the question loomed large of who could give voice to the eponymous hero. Now, that question has been thoroughly answered with a "Ron F$%king Swanson," as 'Parks and Recreation' star Nick Offerman has been given the role! Want to see Offerman's 'Axe Cop' in action?
