Jim O'Heir Previews Parks and Recreation, What Makes Jerry So Happy

He might be the happiest, most relaxed character on all of television - and on tonight's Parks and Recreation episode, we'll find out why. Yes, TV Fanatics, we're about to meet Gail Gergich. And, oh yes, she's played by Christine Brinkley. "We got the dream guest star to do it," Jim O'Heir told me over the phone, clearly excited over who would be portraying his fictional wife. "We got the prototype." O'Heir said producers were going back and forth on the casting: do they give Jerry a "skinny, scrawny" chain-smoking wife? Someone to whom he's actually a tyrant at home? Or do they go in the other direction, a "Christine Brinkley-type" that explains why Jerry handles all the office abuse with a smile on his face? They chose wisely, O'Heir says. Read More...

SNEAK PEEK: Tammy 2 Crashes Ron's Woodworking Bash On 'Parks & Rec'

" Parks and Recreation " fans know just how much Ron Swanson loves woodworking: He loves it almost as much as he loves breakfast buffets featuring all the eggs and bacon one can eat. Ron's woodshop skills are partly inspired by actor Nick Offerman's love of the craft (the actor has his own woodshop ), but those skills also exist because Ron is just good at everything that truly matters. So imagine Ron's irritation when one of his troublesome Tammys (Megan Mullally) shows up at the Indiana Fine Woodworking banquet in this week's episode (Thurs., Dec. 6 at 9:30 p.m. EST on NBC), titled " Ron and Diane ." It's a fancy event -- complete with an emcee who loves corny, wood-inspired jokes -- and Ron is there with his date, Diane (Lucy Lawless). He, Diane and Leslie are dying to see if Ron's nominated chair wins an awards. But Tammy 2 shows up, and as you can see in this exclusive deleted scene from Thursday's episode (above), Ron tries hard to resist the lure of her insanity. Also guesting in Thursday's episode: Christie Brinkley , who plays Jerry's wife. Yes, Jerry's wife ! Take a look at Brinkley and more of your "Parks and Recs" favorites in four more videos from this week's episode below. Tune in for "Parks and Recreation" on Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. EST on NBC.
