Paul Schneider to Co-Star on Parks and Recreation

by at . Comments

Rounding out the cast of NBC's highly anticipated Amy Poehler sitcom, Parks and Recreation, is Paul Schneider, who was named one of Variety's "Ten Actors to Watch" this year.

Schneider - who played Gus in Lars and the Real Girl and Rachel McAdams' dopey ex Brad in The Family Stone - will play Mark, a co-worker of Poehler's character, Leslie Knope.

The two had a one night stand at some point, and she's still into him, but he's got his eye on Rashida Jones' character, Ann (whose live-in boyfriend will be played by Chris Pratt).

Insiders also tell me that actor Nick Offerman has won the role of Ron, the employees' Parks and Recreation superior. Sounds like a fun cast and a fun show coming our way April 9.
