Parks and Recreation: Look Who’s Playing April’s Eagleton Doppelgänger

 

Parks and Recreation June Diane RaphaelParks and Recreation has assembled the final piece of its forthcoming “bizarro” Pawnee plot, and we approve.

TVLine has learned exclusively that comedy vet June Diane Raphael (NTSF:SD:SUV::, New Girl) has signed on to play the Eagleton counterpart of Aubrey Plaza’s apathetic April.

“She’s April’s doppelgänger,” confirms exec producer Mike Schur, who describes Raphael’s character as “kind of a rich, boozy, Real Housewives-type.”

As Schur previously explained to TVLine, the Eagleton-Pawnee plot, which will take place over several episodes, finds the rival towns embarking on “a joint venture” which will allow viewers to finally meet the Pawnee crew’s equivalents. ”If you were in the Eagleton Parks Department, what would it look like? We wanted to show that world.”

Raphael joins fellow bizarros Kristen Bell (as Leslie’s counterpart), Sam Elliott (as Ron’s “twin”) and Bill Eichner (as Donna’s double).

Tom’s copy, meanwhile, is being kept under wraps. “Tom’s doppelgänger is a spoiler,” Schur teased. “It’s not who the actor is — it’s the concept behind it.”

Parks and Recreation kicks off Season 6 on Thursday, Sept. 26.
