Parks and Recreation Casting Call: Who Should Play Tammy the First?

by at . Comments

For a sitcom, the Parks and Recreation season finale sure dropped a few bombshells.

One of the most outrageous moments involved a coif-singed, eyebrowless Ron Swanson being confronted by his ex-wife, Tammy Number-Two (played hilariously, as usual, by Nick Offerman's real life wife, Megan Mullaly), and then simultaneously being blindsided by the appearance of first ex-wife, Tammy Number-One, who we only partially saw through a window.

Ron and Tammy

Just the mere mention of her name was enough to terrify Tammy Number-Two and send her into an expletive-laced, expedited  departure. Who could possibly be so awful that she would scare the bejeezus out of the woman that Ron claims resides within "Satan's butt-hole?"

Better yet, what actress would you love to see cast in the role? (Debra Messing, anyone?)

Fortunately, we won't have too terribly long to wait, as Parks and Recreation will return in the fall rather than making us suffer once again through a wait until midseason.

In the meantime, toss out your casting suggestions now. Who should play the first Tammy?

Thank God for MeMyselfandRye is not a real casting director!!! LOL
What a boring looser list you have! Terri Hatcher, Demi Moore, Catherine Keener, Kristin Wiig and Salma Hayek?
OMFG I alread sleeping. :p
And He/she what ever said that Kathy griffin is too young for this and then bring Terri Hatcher, Demi Moore, Kristin Wiig and Salma Hayek?
Are you high?
LOL I also think that Kathy Griffin, Debra Wilson and Julia Louis-Dreyfus would be the best choice.
But Madonna? not so much.

Okay, so Kathy Griffin is not too young (she is still younger than Megan Mullaly), but that is hardly the main reason not to use her. Julia Louis-Dreyfus would be good, but I doubt she will have time seeing as she already has a new show coming out. Debra Wilson? From Mad TV? I feel pretty neutral towards that one. I will throw out one last suggestion: Terri Hatcher. But I really think Demi Moore would be the best (She might fall into the same category as Meryl Streep, except for not being any where near as talented, and she might not want to be perceived as leaching off Mr. Demi Moore (Ashton Kutcher)).

Catherine Keener does comedy (40 year old virgin, Seinfeld) so maybe don't be too quick to judge someone's talent. Kathy Griffin? Red Head, too young.
Madonna? Blond, too old
Meryl Streep? So many things I could say to disqualify her, but here is the only one that matters, SHE IS TOO BIG TO BE BOTHERED WITH A TINY LITTLE TELEVISION SHOW (no matter how big it is in our hearts). If you want to be so unrealistic, why not suggest Liz Tyler or RuPaul or Dame Edna.
