Exclusive Parks and Rec Deleted Scene: Watch Ben Bask In the Glory of His 'Cool Guy' Moment

Get More: Exclusive, First Look, Video

Poor, nerdy Ben. This Thursday’s Parks and Recreation (NBC, 9:30/8:30c) intended to make him cool — at least in the eyes of his new co-workers — but, sadly, his moment in the sun was ultimately cut from the episode. Luckily for you, we’ve obtained the clip and can confirm that alterna-Ben is a must-see.

  • Very funny! Too bad this was cut. I have to say, I don’t love the idea of Ben working at a boring accounting firm following his campaign managing stint in DC, but I’m willing to give it a chance and hope they have a better career path in mind for him.

    • Calc-u-later. Lol. Aw Ben. Am I the only one who is hoping that Whoomp There It Is is played at Ben & Leslie’s wedding as a callback to their first beer together back in season 2 when Leslie realized who Ben was? I still crack up when she throws her credit card down to pay for the drink and shouts, “Whoomp there it is.” I love Ben & Leslie.
