Director Werner Herzog to Cameo in ‘Parks and Recreation’ Season 7

Acclaimed German director Werner Herzog will cameo in the seventh and final season of “Parks and Recreation.”

Herzog shared the news during a Q&A at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on Thursday evening, according to Flavorwire.

“Just ten days ago I acted in a tiny cameo part in a TV show called, uh, ‘Parks and Recreation?'” the filmmaker reportedly said, going on to explain that he plays “an elderly guy who sells his decrepit house to the young couple who are the leading characters in this, and directly to the camera, I address the audience and I say, ‘You know, I lived in this home for 47 years. And I decided to move out now and sell this because I’m moving to Orlando, Florida, to be close to Disney World.’ I’ve never seen the show, but I hope they kept some of it.”

It’s assumed that the “young couple” Herzog refers to are Leslie and Ben, the characters played by Amy Poehler and Adam Scott in the critically beloved comedy.
