Adam Scott The Good Place Guest Star

The Good Place: Adam Scott Set to Guest-Star in Multiple Episodes

Here’s some good news for The Good Place: Adam Scott is set to guest-star on the NBC freshman comedy.

In fact, the Parks and Recreation alum will appear in multiple episodes, according to Entertainment Weekly. No details yet on the character Scott is playing — another God-like architect like Ted Danson’s Michael? A replacement guide for the rebooting Janet? — but we’ll find out soon enough: Scott makes his first appearance in next Thursday’s episode (8:30/7:30c).

The casting is a reunion of sorts, since Parks and Rec showrunner Michael Schur is the creator of The Good Place. (Scott played dorky accounting whiz Ben Wyatt for six seasons on Parks.) Scott has made recent appearances on TBS’s Angie Tribeca and IFC’s Comedy Bang! Bang!, and he’s also set to co-star alongside Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon in HBO’s 2017 miniseries Big Little Lies.

Meanwhile, The Good Place is doing, well, pretty good for NBC so far, debuting to critical acclaim and solid ratings on Thursday nights. Its first season is already set for 13 episodes; no word yet on a second-season renewal.

What kind of character should Adam Scott play on The Good Place? Angelic? Evil? Hit the comments and share your ideas.

    Undoubtedly some kind of love interest for Bell’s character. Good match me thinks.

  3. Katrinka says:

    I love The Good Place AND Adam Scott, so this is happy news in my book!

    Immediately hoping he’s Eleanor’s real soulmate.

    No mention of the Veronica Mars connection? *sigh*

    I’m thinking Senior Architect to measure how well Michael’s little live in experiment is going. With Michael’s resulting full on anxiety attacks for being under the microscope leading to much “hoody-time”.

    Danson just brings it every week.

      Agree – Danson is so good on this show… ‘hoody-time’ and ‘kicking dog into the sun’ and everything in between.
