Retta and Jim O'Heir talk 'Parks and Recreation': Will we ever meet Jerry's wife?

My love for Jerry and Donna from Parks and Recreation is as endless as the ways Jerry embarrasses himself in every episode. What’s even better? The actors who play these characters are just as fun.

Take, for instance, the conversation they had with EW on the red carpet for NBC’s All-Star party on Monday night during TCA Press Tour. Among the topics? O’Heir’s hopes that — like Ron — we’ll delve into Jerry’s life a bit and meet some important ladies: His wife Gayle and three daughters!

“I want to,” O’Heir told EW. “I have the wife, the kids, the daughters. I’m pretty sure [they’re] going to [cast] Demi Moore or Angelina Jolie. They’ve both been calling. So we might go that direction. It would make the most sense I think.” (We’re pretty sure he’s joking about that.) As for Donna, Retta said there’s only one thing she’d like to see this season…

Watch below for the shocking answer! (And hear them talk about latest guest star Patricia Clarkson!)

      I had always asumesd that Niki’s actual power is still a little ambiguous and her split personality screwiness is just a manifestation of her general actual psychological problems..

    For some reason, I thought Donna & Jean Ralpho might have hooked up in the past.

      That would be awesome if they did!

    I love when Donna and Jean Ralphio have scenes together. Love love love it! Well, pretty much any time Jean Ralphio is around. “I made my money the old fashioned way… I got run over by a Lexus!!”

    So excited for Patricia Clarkson as Tammy #1!!!!!

  • orville

    They should just hand over the 2012 Emmy for casting for a comedy series to the casting directors of Parks right now. Patricia Clarkson as Tammy #1 is brilliance.

        I always liked David Gregory. He seems to be the only guy in the White House Press Corps who truly goes after the adniaistrmtion. And judging by his appearances on the Today show, he doesn’t take himself too seriously.I think Couric’s name keeps coming up because she is so tanking at CBS that she’d probably take anything offered at this point. Imho, she’d be awful on MTP.

        Everyone should have the right of free hhrtlecaae. You’ll find diligent people who’s jobs? do not want to provide them the correct hhrtlecaae or they can’t afford it as being a person or for their family. We should instead help out our fellow people and help provide these phones your health. We have been referred to as the Usa.
