There’s a lot of love for “Game of Thrones” from the guys over on “Parks and Recreation,” particularly writer/producers Michael Schur Dan Goor, and Amy Poehler admitted herself that “Parks” takes some influence from “Game of Thrones.” Asked by Time Out New York how the “Parks and Rec” characters would fit into the “Game of Thrones” universe, Poehler responded:

“Well, come on, I would be Khaleesi [Daenerys Targaryen], of course. Ben would probably be Jon Snow, because he’s so tormented. Ron would be Stannis Baratheon … And Tom would be … Uh oh, I hate to break it to Aziz [Ansari], but Tom would be, like, Theon Greyjoy, which is not good right now. Ann would be Sansa, April would be Arya, and Andy would be one of the dragons.”

That sounds about right, though she left off a few. Like, Chris Traeger would be Jorah Mormont, Tammy 2 would be Melissandre, Councilman Jeremy Jamm would be Joffrey, Lil Sebastian would play a Direwolf, and Jean-Ralphio would be Littlefinger. Donna and Jerry would be Cersei and Jamie Lannister, just because that’s not weird enough already. Oh, and Mark Brendanawicz would have to be Khal Drago.

Oh, hell. We could go on forever, couldn’t we?
