Fixing the economy? Creating jobs? Nope, Joe Biden has priorities for his second term in office as US Vice President.
The VP is set to make a cameo next Thursday on NBC's Parks and Recreation, where he will play himself. To be fair though, the cameo was shot in Washington D.C. last July Everyone had to keep the cameo a secret because Joe's appearance could have been considered a campaign contribution, in which case Federal Election Commission rules would require the show to give an equal amount of on-screen time to Mitt Romney's running mate Paul Ryan! "His staff really loves the show, and he apparently had watched the show with his family and his family liked it," said the show's executive producer Michael Schur, according to Rolling Stone.
Amy Poehler's character Leslie Knope once described her ideal man as having "the brains of George Clooney and the body of Joe Biden," so as an engagement present, her fiance Ben (Adam Scott) arranges a meeting at the White House with the VP.
"My whole family loves Parks and Recreation and I had a great time filming that scene," he said in a comment a staff member e-mailed to the New York Times. "On a personal note, I'll never figure out how Leslie Knope got my home phone number, but that really just shows how committed she is."
