Over the past few weeks, we’ve learned that Kristen Bell is set to play the Eagleton counterpart of Pawnee’s perky Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler). Sam Elliott will play the counterpart of the masculine and mustached Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman).
But who’s the next Eagleton doppelganger to make it to the hit NBC comedy?
Billy Eichner, the star and creator of Funny or Die’s Billy on the Street, will be making an appearance in the upcoming season of Parks. According to TVLine, the comedian will be Donna Meagle’s (Retta) Eagleton doppelganger.
Executive Producer Mike Schur praises Eichner, describing him as “one of the funniest human beings” he’s ever seen in his life. Donna is known for her sass and her love of her Mercedes. We’d love to see what Eichner can bring to the Eagleton Parks Department.
The relationship between the citizens of Pawnee and Eagleton is a bit sour – Eagleton is full of the rich snobs according to our favorite people in the Pawnee Parks and Rec department. Schur explains that the rival towns will be meeting soon “on a joint venture”.
They have yet to cast April’s (Aubrey Plaza) equivalent, while the doppelganger for Aziz Ansari’s Tom Haverford is being kept secret.
Season 6 will debut on Sept. 26th where we’ll see the Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department frolic around London.
