Another Day, Another ‘Parks and Recreation’ Casting Announcement
Parks and Recreation’s jam-packed sixth season just got even jam-packed-er (just go with it) with the announcement that comedian/screamer Billy Eichner has been cast as Donne Meagle’s doppelgänger. Eichner is set to star in an episode where our beloved gang of Pawneeans meets their alternate-universe selves. Kristen Bell and Sam Elliott have already been confirmed to guest star as Eagleton’s Leslie Knope and Ron Swanson, respectively. It’s unclear just how the Billy on the Street host will become Retta’s double, but rest assured it involves a lot of yelling.
As for who’ll play Aziz Ansari, showrunner Mike Schur isn’t saying, telling TV Line, “[i]t’s not who the actor is – it’s the concept behind it.”
