Paul Rudd has joined the cast of Parks and Recreation. It was officially announced yesterday that the actor - best known for his roles in hit feature comedies Role Models and I Love You, Man amongst others - would be joining the cast as Leslie Knope’s (Amy Poehler) opponent in the race for city council.
Rudd is not the first big name to appear on the show in recent times however, back at the beginning of the current season of Parks, Oscar nominated actress Patricia Clarkson appeared. It is as-of-yet unknown how many episodes that Rudd will appear in, but many guest stars in the show’s past have had multi-episode arcs, lending credence to the notion that it may be more than just a one episode stint.
Rudd will be joined by Kathryn Hahn, who had previously been thought to be Knope’s opponent until she was revealed to be playing her opponent’s campaign manager, with their first and possibly only appearance set to be January 19th.
Parks and Recreation returns from its mid-season break this Thursday January 12th.
