Yesterday, it was announced that Chris Pratt had been cast as Star-Lord in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Which was great news, but it left us wondering, Why are they stopping there? If this super-team really plans on fighting for justice, it demands to be stocked with all of Pawnee’s best civil servants from Parks and Recreation. To get a visual image of why this is clearly the right direction, click on to see Amy Poehler as Rocket Raccoon; Nick Offerman as Groot, the Walking Tree; Aubrey Plaza as Gamora (with new indomitable eye-rolling powers!); and Aziz Ansari as Drax the Destroyer (Treat yo’self … to pain!).
