RZA’s audition for Parks & Rec

In 2009, RZA auditioned for the role of Leslie Knope on NBC’s present-day hit comedy series, Parks & Recreation.

…I just wanted to type that out so we can all read and re-read that sentence over and over again.

Funny Or Die uncovered the audition tape (which should clue you in on the seriousness of that first sentence) with Questlove humorously narrating the intro and outro. I dig RZA as an actor (his movies + Californication guest role) and Parks & Rec is my favorite comedy on TV right now. So, basically, I loved this. I won’t ruin it. If you landed here, you’re already pressing play anyway. And what a great way to start Friday.
