'Parks and Recreation' brings back Louis C.K., makes a 'Free Agent' pickup

The obstacles to love for Ben and Leslie on "Parks and Recreation" will keep coming this season -- including one that looks a lot like Louis C.K.The comedian and star of FX's "Louie" is set to reprise his role as Dave, the cop Leslie (Amy Poehler) dated for a while in Season 2, TVLine reports. Dave's arc on the show ended when he took a job in San Diego and Leslie decided to stay, but he'll return to Pawnee in an episode slated to air early next year. We're sure Ben (Adam Scott) will take the news of one of Leslie's exes being back in town in the same calm, not-at-all uncomfortable manner he's handled the other bits of bad news we've seen him get.Meanwhile, TVLine also reports -- and "Parks and Rec" showrunner Mike Schur confirms -- that Kathryn Hahn, late of NBC's short-lived "Free Agents," has also come aboard the show. She'll appear... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/11/parks-and-recreation-brings-back-louis-ck-makes-a-free-agent-pickup.html

Kathryn Hahn to Oppose Leslie on Parks and Recreation

It looks like Ben and Leslie's newly-rekindled romance won't affect the latter's political dreams after all. TV Line reports that Kathryn Hahn - most recently seen (below) on NBC's very short-lived Free Agents - will appear on multiple episodes of Parks and Recreation in early 2012 as an operative working against Leslie and her campaign for City Council. Hahn's character will debut in January and work for an opposing candidate. Played by whom?!? That much is uncertain. But we can only imagine the hilarious possibilities of this race... http://www.tvfanatic.com/2011/11/kathryn-hahn-to-oppose-leslie-on-parks-and-recreation/

Leslie Throws Caution to the Wind, Chooses Ben on 'Parks & Recreation' (VIDEO)

If Ron isn't careful, he's going to get all soft and mushy. He was fully invested in Andy's search for a college class to take, like a parent would be. Of course, Ron caring about the people he works with, despite his crusty exterior, is part of what makes his character work so well on 'Parks & Recreation' (Thu., 8:30PM ET on NBC). Leslie, on the other hand, has been struggling with how much she cares about Ben, going so far as to make terrible professional decisions week after week rather than deal with the situation head on. Until this week, that is. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/11/18/leslie-caution-to-the-wind-chooses-ben-parks-and-rec-video/

'Parks and Recreation's' Nick Offerman on Mustaches and Being Tackled by Robin Givens (Q&A)

The Hollywood Reporter:  You're best known for  Parks and Rec , but you've been a busy working actor for more than 14 years. What was your career like before the show? Nick Offerman:  I'd been making a really nice living for about 10 years here in L.A. I always felt successful just doing that. I've been working steadily as an actor since around 1998. I wasn't well known in the public, but I was a dependable working journeyman. I was working more than all the people I knew from college and my Chicago theater community, so I didn't notice that I wasn't "successful" enough. When I got my job on Parks, it was so dreamy, kind of unfathomable. I didn't think a job that excellent could exist for me.

'Parks and Recreation': Is an 'Occupy Pawnee' episode in the works?

"Parks and Recreation" has used current events as comedy fodder a few times in the past -- see the Anthony Weiner-esque situation with Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones) in this season's premiere.It appears the show's writers have also been watching the news in the past month or so, because one of the ideas kicking around the writers room is an "Occupy Pawnee" story, star and producer Amy Poehler says."We were talking about that," Poehler tells Vulture. "I don't know where we'll be with the time frame of that, but maybe Pawnee will be up in arms."We don't know what sort of thing might lead Pawnee's citizens to protest en masse (at least now that the issue of what goes in the time capsule has been settled), but an Occupy story could actually work within the world of "Parks and Rec." Consider:- Pawnee residents are known to get riled up about trivial things, so it's not a... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/11/parks-and-recreation-is-an-occupy-pawnee-episode-in-the-works.html

'Parks and Recreation': Being just friends is fun -- right, Ben?

Ben Wyatt is stuck in the Friend Zone, and he's not all that happy about it -- despite what he may say.Call us crazy, but we're just not buying Ben's (Adam Scott) insistence that he's cool just being friends with Leslie (Amy Poehler) in the above clip from Thursday's (Nov. 10) "Parks and Recreation." It could be the way that he repeats "It's fun" five times in the talking head at the end of the scene, or the way he deflates when Leslie has to leave the Model United Nations session for campaign business. But Ben is not in a happy place right now.That's not good for him, but it could be very good for the show, because Scott is really good at squeezing comedy out of repressed feelings.Thursday's episode also has Ron (Nick Offerman) searching for someone to fill Tom's (Aziz Ansari) job, and as you can see in the video at the end... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/11/parks-and-recreation-being-just-friends-is-fun-right-ben.html

'Parks and Recreation': Join Andy and April on a road trip

You saw the beginning and end of Andy and April's impulsive road trip on Thursday's (Nov. 3) "Parks and Recreation." Now you can watch some of the rest of the journey too. The show has released its first-ever set of webisodes. "Road Trip" (sponsored by Volkswagen) follows Andy (Chris Pratt) and April (Aubrey Plaza) as they set out on a marathon drive so Andy can cross seeing the Grand Canyon off his bucket list. There are a few obstacles along the way, though.In the first episode (which is above), April nearly torpedoes the whole trip when she discovers a spider in the car. Andy then gets really excited when they reach the Four Corners (or so he thinks), and Leslie (Amy Poehler) offers up some travel tips via phone. When they finally reach their destination, April and Andy talk about settling down there. The other three webisodes are below, and you can see photos and... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/11/parks-and-recreation-join-andy-and-april-on-a-road-trip.html
