So I’m not quite sure when this whole “get Anna Kendrick on Parks” started (which is cool, I like her), but last night I reblogged this post of Lin Manuel’s tweet about the A.V. Club’s interview with MikeySchur when it dawned on me that he should be the one to make a cameo. I mean, he’s no stranger to television, making an appearance on Modern Family. He’s talented with quick wit and can keep up with the improv—writing NPH’s rap at the Tony’s, winning his own Tonys and rapping while accepting them, etc. He’s also dabbled into some comedy and did some rapping for College Humor! As if those weren’t enough reasons to have him on the show, HE’S ALREADY A HUGE HISTORY NERD LIKE LESLIE KNOPE, as evidenced by this video. I mean, c’moooooooon. Jean-Ralphio who? He can be like one of Ann’s boyfriends or whatever, idec, just get him on the show!! Great idea or the greatest idea?! Nay! B R I L L I A N T, I say! It was so magnificent that I even fucking tweeted MikeySchur about it. And we all know how paranoid I am with my repeated interweb run-ins with ~famous ppl~*~, so yeah, this was a big fucking deal.
IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES!! Remember “Parents Just Don’t Understand” from the “Pawnee Zoo” cold open? Okay, well now there can be a Part Deux! With Lin!
