Werner Herzog to Cameo in ‘Parks and Rec,’ Which He’s Never Seen Before

By

German filmmaker and documentarian Werner Herzog is set to show up next season on Parks and Recreation. During an event at the Brooklyn Academy of Music last night, Herzog revealed that he recently filmed a “tiny cameo” for the NBC show as “an elderly guy who sells his decrepit house.” He even shared his line with the audience, which you can spoil for yourself by reading the complete recap of the event over at Flavorwire. Herzog also revealed that, despite agreeing to do the cameo, “I’ve never seen the show, but I hope they kept some of it.” Hopefully after Parks and Rec ends next year, Herzog will agree to do a super existential documentary about the show’s seven-season run and drive all the main cast into madness in the process.
