Jill Biden better watch her back— Amy Poehler is on the prowl!
Newly re-elected Vice PresidentJoe Biden is taking a break from national matters to focus on a new initiative: Parks and Recreation… the show, that is.
Comedian Amy Poehler plays Councilwoman Lesile Knope on NBC’s hit series, where the VP will guest star in an upcoming episode.
While his cameo was supposed to remain a secret before the election, we’re sure the man in charge knew about the second-in-command’s sitcom debut, as President Obama is an admitted fan of the show.
Amy’s character Leslie has a bit of a crush on the 69-year-old, proclaiming on the show that her perfect man has "the brains of George Clooney in the body of Joe Biden." She’s in for a special treat when her on-screen love Ben (Adam Scott) takes her to meet Joe as an engagement present.
The cameo was filmed back this summer in various locations around the nation’s capitol, but Joe’s Parks and Rec debut won’t air until Thursday, Nov. 15. Check out a sneak preview of the episode below.
