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).

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

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

    Great, I love her! I actually liked Free Agents but glad she found some work so fast. It’ll be great to see her with Amy.

    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!)
