'Parks and Recreation': Kristen Bell to guest
A cast member of Veronica Mars and House of Lies is about to spend some time with Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), and her name will definitely ring a bell.
After shooting the Veronica Mars movie, Kristen Bell will guest-star in an episode of NBC’s Parks and Recreation as Ingrid, a snooty City Councilwoman from Eagleton. “She’s Leslie’s equivalent, but richer and better dressed,” executive producer Michael Schur tells EW. The two will first meet up at the annual Pawnee-Eagleton high school basketball game. Bell and Parks actor Adam Scott previously worked together on Party Down and Veronica Mars, and she currently stars with frequent Parks guest Ben Schwartz on House of Lies.
Parks returns for its sixth season on Sept. 26, and scenes from the one-hour premiere will be shot in London. Bell’s episode is slated to air in early October.
