    First Rob Lowe, now Adam Scott. I think these additions are intesting (especially Scott), but I hope they don’t take away any screen time from the current regulars.

    Except for Mark and Ann – I’m ok with them getting less screen time.


      These are poor additions – a perfect love interest for Leslie would have been Will Friedle

        Cool. I didn’t realize Will Friedle posted on the EW message boards AND was “Growing Pains” fan. :)

        GROWING PAINS FAN – i loved you on boy meets world.

        I swear you and me are the same person, we arent people, so dont start that crap. But you want to see Will Friedle back on TV as much as me. I suggested him for Dancing With the Stars, Becketts love interest on Castle, I just miss Eric From Boy Meets World. Actually Adam Scott is from Boy Meets World, Griff Hawkins who took over for Harley Kiener and his lackeys Frankie and Joey.

        Adam Scott is GREAT… So good in Party Down, and also hilariously horrible in Stepbrothers…

    What will happen with Party down?

    this just made me inexplicably happy.

  • ggny

    he is joining as a regular!? Sweet! God Parks and Rec just keep getting better and better…And im guessing if he is gonna be a love interest for Leslie then Rob Lowe character will be a love interest for Ann which i like

  • madd

    Could we replace the “Leap Year” with Step Brothers, Tell Me You Love Me, or any of the other good things he’s done?

  • James

    These Parks & Rec additions keep getting better and better. I love the addition of Adam Scott! Hope that doesn’t mean the end of him being the lead of Party Down.

      Apparently, he’ll be in three episodes in Season 3 of ‘Party Down’ [if it is renewed] but, for me, that just ain’t enough. Still, at least ‘Parks and Recreation’ isn’t much of a step down from the best comedy around.

    this isn’t in place of rob lowe, right?

  • Nick B

    Now this is good casting for Parks and Recreation. Rob Lowe, not so much.

  • Ryan

    This castings better not take away the screen time the hilarious supporting players Jerry and Donna get.

    To me, he will always be the teacher who knocked up a student on Veronica Mars.

  • Elle

    Yay! I love Adam Scott. He is very under the radar, but I have loved everything he has done from Veronica Mars to Party Down.
