Vice President to make Poehler-izing cameo for 'Parks and Recreation'
Pawnee City Councilwoman Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) will get to meet one-half of her ideal man on the Nov. 15 episode of "Parks and Recreation." (Knopes once mentioned that he should have "the brains of George Clooney in the body of Joe Biden.") Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott) will take his fiancée to the White House to meet the Vice President as a surprise engagement present.

According to TV Guide, the segment was filmed in July but had to be kept secret until after the election. (Due to equal-time rules, if news of it was leaked, producers would have had to offer a similar cameo to Republican Vice-Presidential hopeful Paul Ryan.)
In a statement, Biden said his family loves the NBC sitcom, while the show's executive producer called the veep "amazing" and noted that "improvised a couple of things that we ended up using."
"Parks and Recreation" airs Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
