2016 campaign kickoff? Joe Biden to guest star on ‘Parks and Recreation’

If you did not get enough of Joe Biden during this campaign season, don’t worry. You can catch him on “Parks and Recreation” next week.

Both the president and the vice president have previously admitted that they watch the show with their families. And if they watch it as regularly as they say, they might have learned that the newly re-elected Veep has made it onto Leslie Knoppe’s sex list and is her political hero.

While getting Biden to agree to starring in an episode of Parks and Recreation was not difficult, keeping it a secret was, executive producer Michael Schur told Entertainment Weekly.

“The hardest part was keeping it secret for so long because there’s all these FEC rules and equal-time rules. We couldn’t air it before the election because it was the equivalent of a campaign contribution to advertise for one candidate,” he said during the interview.

Other pols who made an appearance on the show include Sen. Barbara Boxer, Sen. Olympia Snowe, and Sen. John McCain.

Bonus: This is not the first time Vice President Joe Biden has met one of the Parks and Recreations stars. When she was 15, Aubrey Plaza, who plays April Ludgate, had quite a run in with the Delaware pol.
