Comedian Louis C.K. is joining the cast of NBC's Parks and Recreation for a multi-episode arc.
The stand-up will portray a Pawnee police officer and potential love interest for the character played by star Amy Poehler.
Amazing! Louis C.K. is already one of the most respected, popular, and beloved comedians around, so he's pretty much already blown up to the big time, but with this and his upcoming role in the Ricky Gervais film The Invention of Lying, it's pretty clear he's going to double blow up. I hope the dude is everywhere by this time next year.
I hope he's so popular they make Louis C.K. Reebok sneakers. I hope they make popsicles with his likeness. I want to see his face on condoms wrappers (our country's highest honor). Pretty much, I want the world to love Louis C.K. as much as I do.
According to Aziz Ansari's blog, Louis C.K. will start filming his episodes tomorrow. Since C.K. is playing a "potential love interest" to Amy Poehler's character, I can't wait for the scene where they hardcore make out.
Also, I just found this week old interview with Louis C.K. that I guess slipped through the cracks. It's not stale to us!
