'Parks and Recreation': Deleted scenes with more of Coach Ron Swanson

What's better than Ron Swanson, youth basketball coach, on "Parks and Recreation"? More of Ron Swanson, youth basketball coach, on "Parks and Recreation."The two deleted scenes from last week's season premiere show Ron (Nick Offerman) channeling his inner Bobby Knight as he molds the young men of Pawnee. Offerman also tells Zap2it that while the red sweater and chair-throwing may be all Knight, Coach Swanson is also based in part on his own father."My dad was a junior high basketball coach through a lot of my youth, and it was a really fun gig for an 8-year-old to be the towel boy," Offerman says. "There's nothing more fascinating than a rack of 24 basketballs -- that's a high-dollar item when you're 8. So I patterned a lot of Coach Swanson after my dad's coaching technique." The first clip includes the Swansonian pearl of wisdom, "Zero passes is selfish. One pass is American. Two passes is... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/01/parks-and-recreation-deleted-scenes-with-more-of-coach-ron-swanson.html

My Pawnee Valentine: The Cast of Parks and Recreation Explains Who's Hooking Up and Why

When we last left Pawnee — a ridiculously long eight months ago — Parks and Recreation 's romantic entanglements were only beginning to get, well, really tangled. Visiting auditors Ben (Adam Scott)  and Chris (Rob Lowe) took a shine to Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Ann (Rashida Jones), but Leslie kind of hated Chris' cynical attitude toward government, and Ann kind of hated that she got drunk and hooked up with Chris. Then there's April (Aubrey Plaza), who really hated Andy (Chris Pratt)  for letting Ann... http://www.tvguide.com/News/Parks-Recreation-Cast-1028111.aspx?rss=breakingnews

'Parks and Recreation': Amy Poehler on Season 3, Leslie and Ben and more

Lots and lots of stories have been writtne about how much "Parks and Recreation" improved from its first to its second season, and bout how lead character Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) had become smarter and less naive.Poehler agrees that the show really found its footing in Season 2, but she's not really buying the idea that Leslie needed to get more intelligent."Certainly the first couple episodes of a show, it's finding its way," Poehler told Zap2it when we visited the show's set in December. "There were some things that were changed and tweaked a little bit, but I think that's the process of any show. I've always thought that Leslie was a fun character to play, because optimistic doesn't mean stupid. "I think it's rare these days in television to find a character that tries to put on a game face and still believes one person can make a difference and all that stuff that... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/01/parks-and-recreation-amy-poehler-on-season-3-leslie-and-ben-and-more.html

'Parks and Recreation': Nick Offerman reflects on Ron Swanson's cult-hero status

Nick Offerman embodies the awesomeness that is Ron Swanson on "Parks and Recreation," but when Zap2it asked him what it felt like to play a cult hero, he deflected credit."If that's true, I haven't really felt quite the effects of becoming any sort of hero," Offerman says in the video above. "It's been really fun, I think -- all the parts of Ron Swanson that are celebrated by the public are things that have been written by our brilliant writers. So I'm tickled pink to be the vessel inhabiting those details."In the video, Offerman also takes no credit for the Swanson Pyramid of Greatness, which you'll see in Thursday's (Jan. 20) season premiere (and which is also available for viewing at Funny or Die). "Mike Schur, our creator, loves nothing more than writing a list," Offerman says. "So he and our other great writers created the Swanson Pyramid of Greatness from whole cloth."When the show... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/01/parks-and-recreation-nick-offerman-reflects-on-ron-swansons-cult-hero-status.html

'Parks and Recreation': Rashida Jones discusses Ann's 'issues'

Season 3 of "Parks and Recreation" will finally answer one of the show's ongoing mysteries: If Ann (Rashida Jones) is a nurse, why does she spend so much time hanging out at Pawnee City Hall?"They're finally making good on that," Jones says with a laugh. "[The writers] acknowledge it, which is funny -- 'Why are you still here? You don't even work here!' -- but I think the premise of that is we live in a small town, so we don't have that much to do. And I did go and follow an ER nurse, and they [usually] work three days a week. ... So it's justifiable."The season's second episode, airing Jan. 27, will show Ann in full work mode as she deals with a flu outbreak in Pawnee, and she tells Zap2it that later in the season, she finds a "good reason" to be hanging out in the halls of government. "Thus far it's... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/01/parks-and-recreation-rashida-jones-discusses-anns-issues.html
