Forget New Hampshire — the political scene in Indiana just got a whole lot more interesting: Yes, Paul Rudd will be the one facing down Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) for that coveted city council seat in Pawnee. The film actor (Knocked UpI Love You, Man) has signed on to guest star in multiple episodes of NBC’s Parks and Recreation as a candidate who’s a well-known figure in Pawnee, EW has confirmed. (Vulture first reported news of Rudd’s casting.) His first episode is slated to air January 19. The network declined to comment.
