The Parks and Recreation gang are no strangers to guest appearances by Will & Grace cast members: Tammy 2 (Megan Mullally) has long terrorized the one-and-only Ron (her real-life husband, Nick Offerman). Thursday night on NBC, they will Jack it up a notch as Sean Hayes guest-stars as Buddy Wood, a big shot talk-show host from Indianapolis who interviews Leslie (Amy Poehler) about the city council race. Turns out, he’s not exactly the biggest fan of Pawnee, which he refers to as the “home of the Sweetums Candy Corporation, 19 toxic waste repositories, and not much else.” Can a flustered Leslie change his mind? Check out their on-camera encounter at the sad-sack Pawnee Municipal Airport after the jump. If you’re looking for another reason to tune in tomorrow, know this: Offerman wrote the episode. And for more scoop, see our report on the 15 essential takeaways from the Parks and Recreation PaleyFest panel.
