'Parks and Recreation' adds Ben's sister

GishThis season on NBC's Parks and Recreation has been a notable one for Adam Scott's character, Ben Wyatt. He has already left his job in Washington, D.C., after realizing that he wanted Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) in his life more than anything else. After their engagement (one of the greatest moment's in TV history in my eyes), we met Ben's parents (Jonathan Banks and Glenne Headly) and watched Leslie desperately try to win their approval.

Now she will get the chance to try to convince his sister. Annabeth Gish, best known for her work on The X-Files and Mystic Pizza, has been cast as Ben's sibling. The episode with Gish's character, Stephanie, is filming this week and will have Ben and Leslie traveling to Partridge, Minn., his hometown and the city he served as mayor of before being impeached. There they meet Stephanie.

Gish co-stars in The Bridge on FX and has also appeared on CSI, Pretty Little Liars and Once Upon a Time.

Other co-stars in this, Parks and Recreation's fifth season, have/will include Christine Brinkley, Joe Biden, Jenny Slate, Newt Gingrich and the great Jason Schwartzman.

Are you watching Parks and Recreation? If not, shame on you! Even if you hate it, tune in and just walk away form the TV so those of us that love it can stop worrying about it getting cancelled.
