Spoiler:The Ausiello Files: August 31
In an episode that begins shooting this week, Fred Armisen will play Poehler’s counterpart from Pawneee’s sister city — but there’s a twist, of course, “Leslie arranges for Armisen and his colleagues to come for a visit, but they’re from a city in Venezuela,” explains exec producer Michael Schur. “They’re very confused because in Venezuela the government is so powerful; their parks department travels with military escorts and motorcades and stuff. They have all the money in the world because of their oil and they don't understand why Pawnee’s parks department is so rinky-dink.”
Schur says Armisen and his fellow Venezuelans “take a real shine” to Nick Offerman’s Ron “because they value his mustache. They call him El Jefe the whole time. They revere him and they present him with all sorts of gifts and stuff.”
