Actor Ben Schwartz Coming Back to ‘Parks and Recreation’

House of Lies "Amsterdam" Episode 2 (5)

Actor Ben Schwartz may be spending his time over on the raunchy Showtime comedy ‘House of Lies’ now, but he will be making a return appearance on the NBC comedy Parks and Recreation when the series returns this fall.

According to TV Guide, he will be back as the self-proclaimed ladies’ man Jean-Ralphio. Details on his return are not being released; but it is being surmised that he could be getting into business with Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari). Right now it looks like Schwartz will only appear in one episode of the new season, with that episode set to air on November 1.

Among Schwartz’s credits are the box office films ‘I Hate Valentine’s Day’, ‘Everybody’s Fine’ and ‘The Other Guys’ as well as a role on the short-lived NBC drama ‘Undercovers’ and guest appearances on ‘Accidentally on Purpose’ and ‘The Sarah Silverman Program’.
