Bill Murray to Play Pawnee’s Mayor on Parks and Rec?


Last night, Michael Ausiello hosted a Parks and Rec panel at PaleyFest, featuring many of the producers, writers and cast of the show. They talked about all sorts of stuff, including what to expect in upcoming episodes. One of the most fun tidbits? That Amy Poehler really wants to get Bill Murray to play heretofore-unseen Pawnee mayor Walter Gunderson.

Sure, Murray is about as hard to pin down as anyone in Hollywood, but that would be a pretty amazing get. And hey, the guy seems to have pretty great taste when it comes to picking projects. Do it, Murray.

Also confirmed: there is no danger of Rob Lowe leaving the show to do Two and a Half Men. Phew! Check out a full rundown of the entire night for many more pieces of trivia and a handful of pseudo-spoilers about the rest of the season.
