Patton Oswalt Goes on Hilarious <i>Star Wars</i> Rant for <i>Parks and Rec</i> Filibuster

J.J. Abrams, you might want to call Patton Oswalt.

Continuing his week of awesomeness, Oswalt will appear in this Thursday’s episode of Parks and Recreation. Thankfully, NBC decided to not keep all the comedian’s wonderful footage hidden away. The network released this video of his completely improvised rant where the character launches a filibuster in order to prevent a city council vote.

When given a chance to ramble on about any subject, Oswalt utilized his extensive fanboy knowledge to create an impeccable 8-minute pitch for the new Star Wars movie. Oswalt even threw in his hilarious criticisms of The Avengers: “I’m sorry, but Hawkeye and Black Widow are not first-tier (heroes).”

Watch Oswalt’s episode of Parks and Rec Thursday on NBC at 8:30 p.m. EST. Check out his amazing outtake in the player above.
