Who’s coming down the Parks and Recreation runway? Heidi Klum. The Project Runway host and America’s Got Talent judge has signed on to guest-star in the season premiere of the NBC comedy, EW has learned.
The hour-long episode on Sept. 26 sends certain members of the Parks gang to London, where Leslie (Amy Poehler) is to receive a “Women in Government” award from an international organization. At the event, she encounters a fellow recipient and mayor of a small town in Denmark, who is played by Klum. “Her town completely worships her in a way that makes Leslie a little jealous, considering that Leslie is undergoing a recall vote in Pawnee,” says Parks executive producer Michael Schur.
Klum is not the only Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model to grace the show. Christie Brinkley has popped up twice as the wife of Jerry (Jim O’Heir).
Henry Winkler also will appear in the season 6 premiere as the father of Jean-Ralphio (Ben Schwartz), which was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter. In other Parks casting news, Kristen Bell is slated to guest-star in the following week’s episode.
