You may remember that Lucy Lawless was the original pick to play Tammy 1 on Parks and Recreation, but she had to decline due to her commitment to Spartacus. Well, now that Lawless is off that show, she's headed to Pawnee! TV Line reports that the Xena actress will play a potential love interest for Ron Swanson in several episodes next season. Wait until he finds out about her political views.
