Jonathan Banks to Guest Star on Parks and Recreation As...

by at . Comments

In perhaps the greatest single piece of casting news we've ever heard, the worlds of Breaking Bad and Parks and Recreation will soon collide.

As reported by Alan Sepinwall of HitFix, Jonathan Banks - who just completed a tremendous run on the AMC drama as Mike Ehrmentraut - will guest star on an upcoming episode of the NBC sitcom as the father of Adam Scott's Ben Wyatt.

Mike in Action

Parks and Recreation co-creator Mike Schur teases that the character will be eerily similar to the cold-blooded killer Banks perfected on Breaking Bad and will likely appear on episode six of Season 5.

We can't wait.
