'Parks and Recreation' Star Rashida Jones Hoping to Debut in Dad's Broadway Show

As the youngest daughter of media mogul and musician Quincy Jones, the 33-year-old star of Parks & Recreation Rashida Jones has to get some perks somehow. Then again, she probably doesn't need them. Still, she can't help but eye a role in her dad's upcoming Broadway play, hoping to make her stage debut. There's no word of confirmation yet, but things are looking pretty good for the actress.

According to The Post Chronicle, Rashida Jones has been aspiring to appear on stage for quite some time now. It was revealed last month that her father's project, "The Genesis and Evolution of Jazz and Blues" is close to a launch - both as a theatre production and a 3-D Pixar film. Conceived more than 30 years ago, it's about time this awaited endeavor come to light.

"I would definitely do it," Rashida Jones told the New York Daily News. "I was thinking about doing Broadway anyway, but doing his show would just sweeten the deal."

While Quincy Jones might get accused of nepotism, it's really unlikely. It sounds as though the Parks and Recreation actress will pursue a career in the stage, whether or not her father continues the project. Even so, she's busy with other matters for now.

It's been reported that she's building up a romance with President Obama's speechwriter, Jon Favreau. The couple has been seen in the lobby of Jon's apartment, the Charleston in Arlington, Virginia. They've apparently been dating for several months now, reports Just Jared.

The Jon Favreau that Jones is with shouldn't be confused with her I Love You Man co-star who bears the same name. This guy graduated valedictorian of his class at the College of the Holy Cross and wasn't the one who directed Iron Man.

Though Rashida Jones is hoping for more roles to come her way, she's still going to be returning for the second season of NBC's Parks and Recreation. The sophomore installment of the series will premiere this September at 8:30pm.
