The comedian and star of FX’s “Louie” is set to reprise his role as Dave, the cop Leslie (Amy Poehler) dated for a while in Season 2, TVLine reports. Dave’s arc on the show ended when he took a job in San Diego and Leslie decided to stay, but he’ll return to Pawnee in an episode slated to air early next year.
We’re sure Ben (Adam Scott) will take the news of one of Leslie’s exes being back in town in the same calm, not-at-all uncomfortable manner he’s handled the other bits of bad news we’ve seen him get.
Meanwhile, TVLine also reports — and “Parks and Rec” showrunner Mike Schur confirms — that Kathryn Hahn, late of NBC’s short-lived “Free Agents,” has also come aboard the show. She’ll appear in several episodes as a political consultant who works for one of Leslie’s rival Pawnee City Council candidates.
Hahn’s first episode is also set to air in early 2012.
