Roots co-founder, “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” band leader and “noted television scholar” ?uestlove posited a theory on Twitter recently that the cast of “Parks and Recreation” is “the Wu-Tang Clan of comedy.”
He may be on to something. The Wu-Tang Clan is regarded as one of the best hip-groups ever, and “Parks and Rec” is rapidly becoming one of the better comedies on television, with nary a weak link in the show’s cast.
Now, ?uestlove has unearthed video evidence to give further credence to his idea: a lost audition tape in which Wu-Tang founder RZA auditions for the role of Leslie Knope. Take a look (there’s some salty language, so headphones on if you’re at work).
OK, that? Just made my day. Join ?uestlove in watching “Parks and Recreation” on Thursdays on NBC. This week’s episode features Amy Poehler’s real-life husband, Will Arnett, and Justin Theroux as guest stars.
