Rudd would play one of the political candidates for city council, going against main character Leslie Knope.
Paul Rudd is coming over to "Parks and Recreation", nabbing a role that will give Amy Poehler's Leslie Knope a competition. Vulture reported that Rudd's character is an opponent in Leslie's race for city council.
It is yet revealed how many episodes Rudd will appear in but Vulture confirmed at least one out of the three episodes with campaign themes. Rudd shot his scenes late last year, meaning his appearance is likely to come within the next month.
It was believed that Katherine Hanh would play Knope's rival in the election plotline but, as it turns out, she is set to play an adviser to one of the candidates. The NBC comedy's executive producer Mike Schur previously said that the city council debate will become a fan favorite moment, telling TV Line "It's f**king great ...It's an awesome, funny script."
"Parks and Recreation" airs Thursdays at 8.30/7.30c.
