'Parks and Recreation' star wants Oprah on show for her intimidating persona

June 8, 2011 - Washington

'Parks and Recreation' star Nick Offerman has revealed that chat show host Oprah Winfrey would be perfect for a guest-starring role on the show, as she is so intimidating.

Offerman, 40, wants Winfrey, 57, to play his onscreen character Ron Swanson's former wife Tammy as she is the only person "intimidating enough" to take on Ron's second wife, also called Tammy and played by Megan Mullally.

"We're going to find out who Ron's first ex-wife Tammy is, and I'm excited to find out why Tammy Two is scared s**tless of Tammy," Contactmusic quoted him as telling the Huffington Post.

"We're trying to start a campaign to get Oprah to play Tammy One. I think Oprah would be the only, she's the only person we can think of that might be intimidating to Megan Mullally. It would be so good.

"There are all kinds of ideas being thrown around. I can assure you if it's not Oprah, I will quit," he added jokingly.
