Bell will head to the Amy Poehler and Adam Scott starrer after she completes filming the Veronica Mars movie and will play a snooty city councilwoman from Pawnee rival Eagleton and a rival to Leslie.

Schwartz, meanwhile, will reprise his role as Jean-Ralphio, the cunning evil genius and friend to Aziz Ansari's Tom Haverford.

It's unclear if the House of Lies pals will appear in the same episode of Parks.

Bell's casting was first reported by EW.
