Guardians of the Galaxy Meets Parks and Recreation

Okay, so how dope does the new Marvel movie, Guardians of the Galaxy look? It is being directed by James Gunn, and looks like it has a really campy, energetic buzz to it. The big thing is that Chris Pratt from  Parks and Rec  plays the lead in the movie. His name in the movie? Star Lord. Say that a few times so you realize how incredibly cool (and self-aware for cheesiness) it is. Also, any movie where Vin Diesel  plays a talking tree and Bradley Cooper stars as a talking raccoon is a movie I will see. Twice. Doesn’t hurt that I am a big fan of the comic. Well, have you guys seen when Guardians of the Galaxy meets Parks and Recreation? Well, you are about to. Buckle in. This gets awesome fast.

Parks and Rec Enlists Jeff Tweedy

  Wilco's Jeff Tweedy will guest-star on Parks and Recreation this spring, according to EW . He'll play one of the lead singers of the once-beloved band Land Ho! that has since acrimoniously broken up. "Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Andy (Chris Pratt) are trying to convince him to reunite for the big Unity Concert they are organizing to solidify the merger of Pawnee and Eagleton," showrunner Mike Schur says, but Tweedy's character is loath to participate.
