Paul Schneider to Co-Star on Parks and Recreation

at .

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.
