Tag: Parks and Recreation (53-65 of 143)
On NBC’s Parks and Recreation, Nick Offerman plays a hands-off boss, but he’ll be playing a different kind of man in charge later this year. It may not even be spring yet, but Offerman already has recorded a guest spot for the Christmas episode of The Cleveland Show, voicing a sexist, philandering department-store owner who requires the female elves (including Roberta) to don hot pants to attract customers. “He’s very handsome and gassy,” Offerman tells EW.

Valentine’s Day — or should I say, Galentine’s Day — arrives a little early this year. On Thursday’s episode of Parks and Recreation (NBC, 8:30 p.m.), Leslie sets out on a Cupid-like mission to put some hearts above single Ann’s head, but she also winds up putting more than a few question marks above boyfriend Ben’s when she sends him on a most difficult scavenger hunt. In the clip below, you can sneak a peek at what happens when Ben enlists the aid of Ron, who claims to “hate riddles and other such nonsense,” and Andy, who matches wits with a can of whipped cream (or as Leslie would say, “no food finer”). Press play and get a clue. READ FULL STORY »
Watch Adam Scott excel at Claymation, depression on this week's 'Parks and Recreation' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
Romney. Gingrich. Huntsman. Perry. Paul. There are so many names floating around the world of politics, we’re just going to say Knope to it all this week. After a month-long hiatus, Parks and Recreation returns to NBC on Thursday with a new episode, “The Comeback Kid,” in which City Council candidate Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) tries to kick-start her campaign with a flashy event. Meanwhile, someone very close to Leslie is launching his own campaign. Of sadness. And it may require an intervention. You see, Ben (Adam Scott) seems to have found a new mate and she goes by the name of Clay. Press play below and ask yourself: Do you think a depressed person could make that?
Forget New Hampshire — the political scene in Indiana just got a whole lot more interesting: Yes, Paul Rudd will be the one facing down Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) for that coveted city council seat in Pawnee. The film actor (Knocked Up, I Love You, Man) has signed on to guest star in multiple episodes of NBC’s Parks and Recreation as a candidate who’s a well-known figure in Pawnee, EW has confirmed. (Vulture first reported news of Rudd’s casting.) His first episode is slated to air January 19. The network declined to comment.

‘THE VAMPIRE DIARIES’: STEFAN CHANNELS… JACK BAUER AND CHUCK NORRIS?
The year 2011 hasn’t been the easiest for Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Co., on The Vampire Diaries, and, as Julie Plec told Mandi Bierly, the first new episode of the season doesn’t do much to indicate changing winds in 2012. READ FULL STORY »
The American Film Institute has been releasing a top 10 movie list since 2000, yet one more volley in the heady awards season hullabaloo. But since 2001, the AFI has also released a list of its top television programs of the year, and their selections have often recognized shows overlooked by other awards groups, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Wire, Battlestar Galactica, and Party Down.
This year’s list recognizes several shows for the first time, including HBO’s Game of Thrones, Showtime’s Homeland, FX’s Justified and Louie, and CBS’ The Good Wife. Notably absent: Fox’s Glee, which was on the ’09 and ’10 lists; AMC’s The Walking Dead, which made last year’s list; and any miniseries or made-for-TV movies, which usually make up a healthy portion of the list.
Check out the full top 10 below: READ FULL STORY »
A pair of Parks and Recreation stars are cooking up some comedy in the world of animation: Both Aziz Ansari and Nick Offerman have recorded guest spots on Bob’s Burgers, EW has learned exclusively.

On tonight’s episode of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, ominously titled “The Trial of Leslie Knope,” our dedicated deputy director must appear before an ethics committee to take responsibility for her clandestine relationship with Ben. Among the witnesses slated to testify during the proceedings is a man named Jerry Gergich… IF SUCH A MAN EVEN EXISTS!
Sorry for the dramatic all-caps treatment, but as you can see in the clip below, we are about to learn something shocking about our resident office punching bag, a secret that has remained hidden for years and years (because no one bothered to ask). If you can’t wait until tonight to watch Leslie learn the truth about the G-Man, press play and share in her horror.
Amy Poehler’s Leslie and Adam Scott’s Ben may be hell-bent on finding a way to build a romantic future together, but that doesn’t mean she won’t be visited by someone from her romantic past. Louis C.K. is set to guest-star again on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, reprising his role as ex-boyfriend Dave Sanderson, an even-tempered cop who asked Leslie to move to San Diego with him in season 2. (TVLine first reported the news.)
The episode featuring C.K., who currently stars in his own FX comedy, Louie, will air later this season.
