Jason Schwartzman To Guest on 'Parks & Recreation'

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist December 19, 2012 at 11:32AM

Until recently, "Parks & Recreation" have been modest with their guest stars, forgoing the "30 Rock" approach of just getting famous people to show, and instead bringing on collaborators that generally elevate the proceedings. For example: Megan Mulally and Patricia Clarkson as Ron Swanson's ex-wives, Detlef Schrempf as himself, Ben Schwartz as Jean-Ralphio and Andy Samberg as the loud Carl. And that careful approach seems to be continuing, as the show has lined up another great guest.

Until recently, "Parks & Recreation" have been modest with their guest stars, forgoing the "30 Rock" approach of just getting famous people to show, and instead bringing on collaborators that generally elevate the proceedings. For example: Megan Mulally and Patricia Clarkson as Ron Swanson's ex-wives, Detlef Schrempf as himself, Ben Schwartz as Jean-Ralphio and Andy Samberg as the loud Carl. And that careful approach seems to be continuing, as the show has lined up another great guest.

Jason Schwartzman will appear in an episode in 2013, sometime before the season is out, playing Dennis Lerpiss, the owner of the Pawnee VideoDome. In the show, Dennis will be working with Amy Poehler's Lesley Knope to designate the store a historical landmark. Hilarity will probably ensue. Schwartzman + 'Parks & Rec'? Yeah, pretty much a no brainer, and the actor is just as good on the small screen as he is at the multiplex. Evidence? HBO's "Bored To Death," or even way back when with his brief stint on "Freaks & Geeks" as the clothing store employee/fake ID entrepreneur. All told, it's one more reason to tune in to 'Parks' if you haven't already. [Huffington Post]
