Two-thirds of a Human Giant reunion will take place on Parks and Recreation for the second time.

Rob Huebel, who co-starred with Aziz Ansari on MTV sketch series Human Giant, will soon pop up in Pawnee alongside Ansari. (Four seasons ago, their other Giant castmate, Paul Scheer, guest-starred in a Parks episode.) Huebel, who currently stars in Childrens Hospital, is playing an unlikable owner of a tent store that Ben (Adam Scott) and Tom (Ansari) can’t seem to escape when they try to rent one. “He’s cornered the market on tents in southern Indiana,” Parks executive producer Michael Schur tells EW, “and he’s just a super terrible dude.”

Huebel’s episode is slated in air in March.

Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, John Hodgman, and Dan Castellaneta are among the celebrity guests appearing in the second half of Parks’ sixth season, which resumes Feb. 27 on NBC.
