Amy Poehler Casts Game of Thrones With Parks and Recreation Characters

Perfection.

Last year, Parks and Recreation co-creator Michael Schur wrote on his Twitter account, "FWIW, I'm pretty sure the cast and writers would be up for a 100% cross-over season with Game of Thrones, if they were into it." It appears Amy Poehler would definitely be into it. We already knew she was a fan and she proved it by completely nerding out in an interview with Time Out New York by running through which GoT character each Parks character would be: 

"Well, come on, I would be Khaleesi [Daenerys Targaryen], of course. Ben would probably be Jon Snow, because he’s so tormented. Ron would be Stannis Baratheon ... And Tom would be … Uh oh, I hate to break it to Aziz [Ansari], but Tom would be, like, Theon Greyjoy, which is not good right now. Ann would be Sansa, April would be Arya, and Andy would be one of the dragons."

But who would Perd Hapley be? Varys?
