Kristen Bell to Guest Star on <i>Parks and Recreation</i>

Between her Showtime series House of Lies and the Veronica Mars movie, Kristen Bell is keeping busy. Now, the actress will be adding a trip to Pawnee to her calendar, as she is slated to make a guest appearance on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, according to EW.

After wrapping up Veronica Mars, Bell will play Ingrid, a stuck-up City Councilwoman from Pawnee’s rival Eagleton. Ingrid and Leslie Knope will meet at the annual Pawnee-Eagleton high school basketball game, and we’re guessing that tensions will be high. “She’s Leslie’s equivalent, but richer and better dressed,” executive producer Michael Schur said.

Parks and Recreation will return to NBC on Sept. 26 with its hour-long London-based premiere. Bell’s appearance is expected to air sometime in early October.
