Another “Parks and Rec” cast member is down for a reunion: Ben Schawrtz, who played Jean-Ralphio on the NBC sitcom, said he would do a reunion “in a second,” and that he’s ready to start growing his hair out in order to “look absolutely ludicrous when it was time to film.”
“I would do it in a second, are you crazy?” he told TheWrap at a Television Critics Association panel for his Nickelodeon show “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Turtles.”
“Oh my goodness. I would grow out my hair. If someone told me in a year we would film, I would grow out my hair from now ’til then, just to look absolutely ludicrous when it was time to film,” Schwartz continued. “I would do anything. I would literally do — I trust Mike Schur so much, I would do anything he writes for all time. Anything.”
He added that he’d be interested to see where his character would be in a reboot… considering he faked his own death, and all.
“We ended with me maybe dead, by the way,” he pointed out. “Then I fake my own death then if you look there’s an easter egg that on the champagne, it says that I make champagne now in a different country or something like that.”
“Parks and Rec” co-stars Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman told Ellen Degeneres recently that they would also do a reunion.
“Absolutely,” Poehler said back in May. “I’ll speak for everybody and say we would all do it. I think we’d all do it someday. It would be amazing.”
