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

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.

Take a peek at the exclusive deleted scene below to watch Adam Scott’s alter ego make his accounting firm colleagues cackle with über-cheesy jokes. Then hit the comments with your pick: Cool Ben or Original Flavor Ben?

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I LOVE it!! Why did they cut this??? Ben deserves this! He could SO be king of the nerds!

  2. Liz says:

    Original Flavor Ben IS Cool Ben.

    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.

    is this from the ‘leslie vs april’ episode? is ben accepting that auditing auditors’ job he had declined last year? is he going to say ‘calc-u-later’ anytime soon? i’m super excited.
    and yes, original flavor ben IS cool ben.

      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.

    NO WAY. Give me nerd Ben, all day every day
