• Parker Posey guests on “Parks and Rec” this week; go behind the scenes!

    Leslie Knope vs. nemesis is always fun, whether it be Marsha, the right-wing bitchface, Joan, the passive-aggressive TV host, or longtime Amy Poehler fan and improv superstar Parker Posey! Posey says she took one look at the Parks and Recreation script she was sent and agreed to guest star as Lindsay, Leslie’s Eagleton frenemy. A doppleganger in job title only, Lindsay is as different than Leslie as a Martha Stewart’s list of good things is different than the garden gnome section of a Harriet Carter catalog.

    After the jump, check out Poehler and Posey in action!
