Buffett a “Dream Guest” for Parks and Recreation Producers

March 20th, 2011

When talk turned to the oft-mentioned but elusive Mayor Gunderson, Poehler admitted that she would love for Bill Murray to play the part. There was also talk of Jimmy Buffett being brought in to portray Leslie’s father — executive producer Michael Schur revealed that there’s still a note in the writer’s room that simply reads ‘Jimmy Buffett’, since they’re still aspiring towards him.
