The love affair between Parks & Recreation and Game of Thrones isn’t exactly a secret. Between the Thrones And Recreation hashtag and the time the showrunners flippety-flopped roles and wrote what amounted to professionally made fanfic, they’re pretty much carrying on right there in public, walking down the street with their hands in each other’s back pockets and sucking face at the putt-putt like two starry-eyed teenagers. So when Time Out New York sat down with Amy Poehler for an interview, it made perfect sense to ask her to cast the HBO drama with characters from Pawnee.
So if the cast of Parks and Rec were dropped into Game of Thrones, who would be whom?
Well, come on, I would be Khaleesi [Daenerys Targaryen], of course. Ben would probably be Jon Snow, because he’s so tormented. Ron would be Stannis Baratheon.
And Tammy 2 would be his Melisandre.
Yes! And Tom would be… Uh oh, I hate to break it to Aziz [Ansari], but Tom would be, like, Theon Greyjoy, which is not good right now. Ann would be Sansa, April would be Arya, and Andy would be one of the dragons. [Laughs] [Time Out New York]
And here’s the best part. This interview went up at Time Out New York today, and the always delightful A Storm of Swansons Tumblr has already Photoshopped all these together. We live in amazing times, truly.
