Ann Who? "Orphan Black's" Tatiana Maslany Joins The Cast of "Parks And Recreation"

Everyone’s favorite Canadian cutie (that’s right, Rachel McAdams, you heard me) is joining NBC’s “Parks And Recreation” for Season 6. Now ostensibly Tatiana Maslany has been hired to play Aziz Ansari’s lady love for an episode or two. But I’m too giddy with the prospect of one of my favorite new TV actresses joining my favorite sitcom to settle for two episodes. I already have visions of her braiding Leslie’s hair. Perhaps while sporting a Russian accent? Listen, with the departure of Rashida Jones, Leslie’s need for a new best friend is much more important to me than who Tommy Haverford is dating. Come on, tell me these two aren’t made for each other.

    Orphan Black Season 2 is currently in pre-production, never fear!

  • John W

    Wow this is huge.

  • Awesome news, for her to get a chance to display her chops in the sitcom-with-a-heart format, and for Joanna's call-out to that other Canadian, who needs to get back in the game in the right ways. Will making out with an exotic European actress in a sex thriller serve as the jump start she needs? Perhaps, but it's giving me the jump start I need this fine morning.

  • Pinky McLadybits

    Maybe she's Tom's Eagleton equivalent....

  • Aaron Schulz

    i want tom to get back with Lucy, she was awesome

  • kirbyjay

    I want Tom to go away and Chris and Ann to stay

  • Aaron Schulz

    whatever without tom we dont get jean ralphio, or him shouting at jerry

  • Joe Grunenwald


  • Aaron Schulz

    and without him donna cant treat yo self

  • anna15

    and yesterday you said 'the mindy project' gets the best guests...

  • $65530708

    First Wendy - Jama Williamson, then Lucy - Natalie Morales, then Ann - Rashida Jones, and now Tatiana Maslany?

    Schur really must love Ansari...

  • Or Ansari has some really juicy dirt on Schur...

  • $65530708

    That too.

  • My immediate reaction: "WHAT? omigod. WHATWHATWHAT? omigod."

    Behind me, one of my dogs sighed loudly and exasperatedly in response. You know what Odie? I don't care. I didn't force you to sit through my marathoning of that show. Maybe if she was a schnauzer you'd understand.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    You get 100 rubber points for naming your dog Odie.

  • vickvock

    Worlds colliding.

  • dizzylucy

    They should do a town forum and have her play all of the different people who get up to speak.

  • Maguita NYC

    This is amazing news! I've fallen for Tatiana badly, and her joining another great cast is very good news indeed!

    But wait... What about Orphan Black??? Has it not been renewed?

  • Shut up, Helena.

  • Last I heard, it'll be back next March or April. Breathe. Do not panic.

  • Maguita NYC

    You made me happy. Then @HMDK:disqus made me doubt that happiness.

    Why do you bring me doubt??

  • HMDK

    Because it's my mission in life to spread uncertainty and unhappiness. Never trust a Dane bearing bears of gifts that shit in the pope's hat in the ... Greek.. woods.... wait, I may be drunk again.

  • Maguita NYC

    Well of course you are, because... Dane! :p

    Also, I've heard of these Greeks who shit in people's hats while in the woods with bears. Horrible people!

  • HMDK

    I need more whiska in my vodkey.

  • HMDK

    Yeah, last I heard it has been given a second season. Unless it's been -unrenewed-, in which case don't tell me, because I WILL shoot and eat the messenger. I just can't fuckin' wait for it. Why are all the best shows 10-13 episodes every other year, these days? I suppose an argument could be made that quality takes time, but theres gotta be another explanation.
