Brad Hall, Julie Louis Dreyfus’ husband and former Saturday NIght Live cast member, will guest on “Parks and Recreation.” He’ll be playing an architect who designs new plans for the Pawnee parks. In other news, when did Brad Hall get so old?


Meanwhile, in divorce news, the Amy Poehler and Will Arnett of frequent television guest stars, Melanie Lynskey and Jimmi Simpson, have filed for divorce.


Breckin Meyer also divorced his wife, Deborah Kaplan, who directed him in Can’t Hardly Wait. Can’t we all just love each other?

David Letterman is trying to cajole Mitt Romney into coming onto his show by imploring all of his viewers not to vote for Romney unless he comes on.

Bryan Fuller denies it, but both Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter are reporting that NBC is not moving ahead with his “Munsters” reboot, “Mockingbird Lane,” which would’ve starred Portia de Rossi as Lily Munster and Eddie Izzard as Grandpa Munster.

Ryan Murphy, who already has “Glee,” “American Horror Story,” and “New Normal” on television is developing two more series, including “Montuak,” a conspiracy thriller for Fox, and an unnamed comedy for NBC.

Old folks may want to take your heart medication before I reveal that Miley Cyrus is in talks to play the female lead in “Bonnie and Clyde,” a lifetime series based on the 1930s outlaws.


In less upsetting casting news, Natalie Portman is being eyes to play the lead in Jackie, a feature film that centers on Jackie O in the aftermath of JFK’s assassination.
