More Parks and Recreation casting scoop related to Adam’s character, Ben!
After playing a white supremacist inmate (Oz), newspaper editor (Spider-Man), police psychiatrist (Law & Order), and assistant police chief (The Closer), J.K. Simmons will pop up as a politician in Parks and Recreation. The actor is guest-starring as the slightly gruff mayor of Partridge, Minn., a post that Ben (Adam Scott) briefly held when he was 18, before being impeached for developing the ill-conceived Ice Town that bankrupted the burg.
In the episode, which airs next month, Ben and Leslie (Amy Poehler) make a road trip to his hometown, where he will find… forgiveness. “The mayor is throwing a ceremony to say, ‘It’s okay, Ben. Everything’s fine now. Ice Town was 20 years ago,’” executive producer Michael Schur tells EW.
Simmons, who also stars in the upcoming ABC comedy Family Tools, isn’t the only celebrity guest in the episode: Annabeth Gish will play Ben’s sister.
