Parks and Recreation Casts SNL Alum as Jean-Ralphio's Twin Sister

Parks and Recreation Cast Jenny SlateIn a piece of uncanny casting almost on par with Once Upon a Time‘s Young Snow White, Parks and Recreation has tapped Saturday Night Live alum Jenny Slate to play Jean-Ralphio’s twin sister, Mona Lisa, in an upcoming episode.

As the storyline goes, Mona Lisa is hired to shill swag on behalf of Tom’s new Rent-A-Swag enterprise, EW.com reports — yet proves just as lax in her work ethic as her twin bro (played by Ben Schwartz).

Since her brief 2009-10 SNL run, which included mimicking Kristen Stewart and the recurring character of infomercial pitchwoman Tina-Tina Chaneuse, Slate has guested on series such as Bored to Death, Girls and Raising Hope.

    Thought she was great on Raising Hope.

    Also, you forgot arguably her biggest breakout yet: Marcel the Shell with Shoes On!

    Way to ruin an episode of Parks. Blech.

    I really liked her on SNL and don’t know why they let her go. I’m glad with this news though, hopefully she’ll recur often as Jean Ralphio does!

    I kind of want to meet the people who named their children Jean-Ralphio and Mona Lisa and raised them into these two lovable weirdos. Can we make that happen, P&R?
