For a show that's been a critical hit in season two, and seen its ratings reflect this improvement, Parks and Recreation is still shaking up its cast.

Incredibly, Scott provided a couple Lost spoilers during this chat. Friends with Sonya Walger, he said she was recently in Hawaii, shooting scenes as Desmond's wife, Penny.

"The last time I spoke with her she was actually in Hawaii shooting. I'm such geek for Lost, so I always have to stop her from telling me what she's doing."
