Available on Amazon Prime Video, Parks and Recreation immerses us in the heart of the Pawnee Parks Department run by the awesome Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler). A cult and hilarious sitcom, which has seen many stars over its 7 seasons …
All 7 seasons of Parks and Recreation are available on Amazon Prime Video.
Joe Biden and Jill Biden
Before settling in the White House by becoming the 46th President of the United States, on January 20, 2021, Joe Biden made the happiness of his first fan: Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), in Parks and Recreation. We find him in the 5th episode of season 5, while he was at the time the Vice-President of Barack Obama, but also in the very last episode of the series, this time on the arm of the now First Lady Jill Biden.
Transgenerational idol, Bill Murray did not fail to illuminate the last season of Parks and Recreation, during episode 11. And that under the costume of Walter Gunderson, the mysterious mayor of Pawnee whose spectators had heard a lot. speak, without ever seeing it. A cameo of only a few seconds, perhaps, but undoubtedly unforgettable.
In addition to the catwalks, Heidi Klum has paraded on film sets, whether at the cinema in Zoolander, The Devil wears Prada or Ocean’s 8, or on television in Sex and the City, Malcolm, How I Met Your Mother or Desperate Housewives. She would therefore have missed for nothing in the world a meeting with the Knope team, evidenced by her presence in the first 2 episodes of season 6 of the sitcom.
Legendary Mike of Phoebe in Friends and now inseparable from his Ant-Man costume, Paul Rudd also marked the minds of Parks and Rec fans by playing the hilarious Bobby Newport, especially in season 4. A city councilor and child spoiled as unintelligent as it is endearing, at the origin of many punchlines.
Far from his character as Mad Men’s Don Draper, Jon Hamm played Ed, one of the worst employees in Pawnee’s Parks and Recreation department – even worse than Terry (Jim O’Heir)! – in seasons 6 and 7 of the series.
In April 2014, the cult series of Greg Daniels and Michael Schur created the event by inviting Michelle Obama in the penultimate episode of the 6th season. She obviously plays her own role there, and meets Leslie by chance before advising her to leave Pawnee to accept a position with the National Parks Service in Chicago. A scene that brought together more than 2.7 million Americans in front of their screens when it was broadcast.
As brief as it is brilliant, Josh Groban’s appearance brightens up Donna (Retta Sirleaf) and Tom (Aziz Ansari) ‘s day at the restaurant in the final season. The singer finds himself at the table just behind the duo, and orders sushi bearing his name … Who would have “believed” him!
Five years after the end of Veronica Mars, Kristen Bell became Ingrid de Forest, a counselor for Eagleton, in 3 episodes of the 6th season of Parks and Recreation.
Introduced in the 2nd season of Parks and Recreation as an old friend of Ann (Rashida Jones) Justin Theroux plays Justin Anderson. This lawyer specializing in civil litigation quickly won the favor of Leslie, even becoming one of his boyfriends.
Star of Saturday Night Live alongside, among others, Amy Poehler, Andy Samberg also gave the reply to the actress in Parks and Recreation. We discover him in the role of Carl, ranger who does not fail to give voice in episode 19 of season 2. And it is not the only star of Brooklyn 99 that can be found in Parks , since Chelsea Peretti, Jason Mantzoukas or Marc Evan Jackson are also entitled to their appearance.
An actress who is no longer presented after her performances in The Green Line, Six Feet Under or Shutter Island, Patricia Clarkson frightened the Knope team. In two episodes of season 4, she lends her features to Tammy 1, Ron’s (Nick Offerman) first ex-wife. A woman so chilling that she managed to make demonic Tammy 2 (Megan Mullally) shiver!
Unmistakable face of cinema and television, JK Simmons has also taken a little tour of Pawnee’s side. In season 5, he lends his features to Mr. Stice, the mayor of Partridge, hometown of Ben (Adam Scott). A boorish and cold man, and above all determined to drive Ben down!
Stand-up star and renowned for his creaky humor, Louis CK was entitled to a recurring role in Parks and Recreation, from season 2. That of David Sanderson, police officer of Pawnee who has a hard time resisting the charm of Leslie….
In 2010, Will Arnett played Chris, a funny guy who has a blind date with Leslie, far from going as planned… And if they don’t have much in common on the screen, the two actors were nevertheless married at the time of filming!
