What's one of the most fun benefits of taking a show about local politics national? Cameos! Parks and Recreation has taken such a turn this season, with Adam Scott's character, Ben, taking a job on Capitol Hill. And Ben will be responsible for bringing a very recognizable gentleman to meet his fiancée, Leslie Knope, played by Amy Poehler -- Vice President Joe Biden! Fresh off of re-election, Biden -- an object of Knope's affections -- will make a brief cameo at the beginning of the episode airing next Thursday, November 15 at 9:30 PM (Eastern). This year's season premiere featured appearances by Senators Olympia Snowe, Barbara Boxer, and John McCain, so Parks and Recreation is clearly the place to be if you're a politician reminding people that you have a sense of humor or you're taking a victory lap. (If Paul Ryan had been the VP-elect, he obviously would have been in last week's episode. He's that fast!) Entertainment Weekly has clips.
