We’ve known for some time now that Veronica Mars herself, Kristen Bell, would be taking a break from her Kickstarter feature to stop by Pawnee for an episode or two of Parks and Recreation this year. She’ll be playing Ingrid de Forrest, a “richer and better dressed” version of Leslie Knope who has the same job as her in Eagleton. Now, we have the first shots of her in character as Ingrid, which you can see above and below. Kristen Bell is 33, by the way, while Amy Poehler is 42.
The entire episode airing on October 3rd, “The Pawnee-Eagleton Tip Off Classic” will actually feature an entirely bizarro world version of the Parks and Rec cast, including Sam Elliot as Ron Swanson. Now THAT should be something to see.
