Tag: Adam Scott (1-5 of 5)
The big social event of Pawnee is finally almost here. On Thursday, in the first of two back-to-back episodes of Parks and Recreation, Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) and Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott) will finally tie the knot. And, as anyone who saw last week’s episode is well aware, the pair’s last-minute decision to marry that night means the whole wedding will have to get thrown together in about two hours.
EW was part of a conference call with Poehler and Scott as well as Parks co-creator/writer Michael Schur this afternoon where the three dished about what we can expect from the wedding and the rest of the season, as well as some of their personal favorite Leslie/Ben moments from the courtship. Check out four revelations below. READ FULL STORY »
Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari) knows way too much about self-pampering and pick-up techniques, but far too little about basketball. In Thursday’s episode of Parks and Recreation (NBC, 8:30 p.m.), he drafts both nerd (Ben, played by Adam Scott) and jock (Andy, played by Chris Pratt) to teach him how to play the sport so he can better connect with the hoops-obsessed kids who frequent his Rent-A-Swag store. Let us head over to the gym where the trio are slated to tip-off against some area youths. As you will see in this clip, Tom is no Detlef Schrempf.
In other plot news from the episode, Leslie (Amy Poehler) and April (Aubrey Plaza) become garbage collectors for a day to prove a gender-equality-in-government point, and Diane (Lucy Lawless) asks Ron (Nick Offerman) to babysit her daughters.
Ben Wyatt’s dad is… Mike Ehrmentraut?!
It’s true: EW has confirmed that Jonathan Banks, better known to Breaking Bad fans as stoic fixer Mike, has booked a guest role on Parks and Recreation‘s fifth season. (HitFix first reported the news.) Banks will play the yet-unnamed father of Adam Scott’s character, Ben Wyatt. He’ll likely appear in the season’s sixth episode.
“We were working [on] the character description of Ben’s dad,” Parks co-creator Mike Schur told HitFix, “and I said aloud, ‘He should act like Mike Ehrmentraut. So somebody said, ‘Well, why can’t we just get Jonathan Banks?’” Schur and his team are all huge fans of both Banks’s work and AMC’s Emmy-winning series: “To me, at this exactly moment in time, he’s everyone I know’s favorite actor,” Schur explained. “After that arc, he’s the actor about which we’ve spent the most time talking in the room over the last year.”
Banks joins a list of Parks season 5 guest stars that already includes Lucy Lawless and Senators John McCain, Barbara Boxer, and Olympia Snowe. The sitcom returns Thursday, Sept. 20 on NBC.
