John Hodgman will be doing his best Eagletonian voice on an upcoming episode of Parks and Rec, according to EW. He'll play August Clementine, Eagleton's snobby NPR host who butts heads with Dan Castellaneta's Derry Murbles, the previously established host of Thoughts for Your Thoughts. He's the interviewer who asked Leslie, "Could one say that a book is nothing more than a painting of words which are the notes on the tapestry on the greatest film ever sculpted?" Oh man, there is nothing better than some good old NPR jokes.
