Continuing a strategy of adding the draw of guest stars to a show you were gonna watch anyway, Sam Elliott will also pop up in this season of Parks And Recreation, joining the recently announced Henry Winkler and Heidi Klum in both the series and, presumably, a cage match in which there can be only one survivor. Though TV Line reports that the big screen’s favorite talking mustache will face off against his small-screen competition, turning up as Ron Swanson’s “counterpart/doppelgänger” in neighboring Eagleton. That happens in the same episode where the previously announced Kristen Bell shows up as Leslie’s “richer and better dressed” equivalent, suggesting we could eventually see an entire bizarro version of the Parks And Rec staff. We’ll know for certain as soon as, say, John Slattery gets cast as Bizarro Jerry.
