Scoop: Parks and Recreation Elects Kathryn Hahn as Leslie's Political [Spoiler]

Former Free Agent Kathryn Hahn is returning to NBC with one helluva political agenda.

Sources confirm to TVLine that Hahn is joining the cast of Parks and Recreation for a multi-episode arc as a political operative who works for another candidate in the race for City Council (a race that features Amy Poehler’s Leslie Knope as a contender).

Parks and Rec Spoiler Alert: Look Who’s Returning!

Look for Hahn (whose credits also include Crossing Jordan and Hung) to make her first appearance early in the new year.

  • This is awesome! Especially since she played Adam Scott’s wife in Step Brothers. The Catalina Wine Mixer!

    • The scene where they are singing Sweet Child Of Mine in the car is one of my all time favourite scenes from any movie ever.

  • She did play Adam Scott’s cheating wife in Step Brothers, so I guess she already has a connection to Parks & Rec.

  • I love her! And I love Parks and Rec! Can’t wait! (Can she be a love interest for Ron, they would be hilarious if done right! Plus she’s a brunette!)
