There’s A Reason Parks And Rec’s Jay Jackson Is Very Good At What He Does

By / 04.21.13

We’ve made no secret of our love for Jay Jackson’s Perd Hapley character on NBC’s Parks and Rec, from wearing out this video of his best moments to Danger Guerrero and I finishing second in NBC’s t-shirt contest with our “I’m Perd Hapley and this is a shirt” design. Honestly, the fact that we didn’t win by a landslide was an outright shame, and I’m not ruling out investigating it as an actual false flag operation.

But if there’s ever a question as to how Jackson plays the ridiculous Hapley so well, we may have an answer, thanks to one Tumblr user’s interesting observation of Jackson’s IMDB page.

You know, I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I think the point is that all of Jackson’s character’s descriptions begin with consonants. But of course Jackson is great as a TV reporter and anchor, he previously won an Emmy for his earlier career in journalism.
