'The Office': Adam Scott as 'Jim,' and other awesome casting what-ifs from the original audition list -- PHOTO

Leslie Knope’s one true love, wooing a mousy receptionist played by 24‘s Chloe O’Brian? Bridesmaids‘s secret air marshal explaining to an invisible documentary crew that he wants people to be afraid of how much they love him? A kooky beet farmer/paper salesman who doubles as a founding member of the legendary Upright Citizens Brigade improv troupe?

Thanks to Rainn Wilson, we now know that all of them could have been featured on The Office — if casting had gone just a little differently.

“This is the original sign-in sheet for the first day of casting for The Office given to me by Allison Jones, our incredible casting agent,” Wilson explained upon posting this revealing photo on Facebook yesterday. “I was the very first person to audition for the series, 11/06/03.” As you’ll see, Wilson and a certain future Parks and Recreation star arrived at the audition simultaneously — and 12 other notable actors followed in their stead:

'Parks and Rec' characters Ben and Leslie have a wedding album on Pinterest

BEN-LESLIE-PINBOARD_510x317Important “Stuff on the Internet” update: Parks and Recreation characters Leslie and Ben have a wedding pinboard on Pinterest, and it’s as absolutely adorable as you’d hope it would be.

In a bunch of photos courtesy of NBC, you can see formal-ish black-and-white pictures of the just-married Mr. and Mrs. Ben Wyatt, or rather, Mr. Ben Wyatt and Ms. Leslie Knope, alongside “behind-the-scenes” photos from the wedding day featuring Ron, April, Tom and yes, even Jerry. READ FULL STORY

'Parks and Recreation': Leslie and Ben forever!

“I promised myself I was not going to cry tonight, and I have already broken that promise five times,” says Chris to Ben in this wedding episode. I have to say, five times sounds about right.  Also, if “Ben and Leslie” doesn’t prove that Amy Poehler deserves her Emmy, I don’t know what the Emmy voters need. Leslie was hilarious (that Tim Gunn impression), lovable (a 70-page first draft on her vows), and amazingly caring (refusing to have her wedding without Ron, who is like a father to her).

Happy Valentine’s Day! Who’s your fictional valentine this year?

Happy Valentine’s Day, PopWatchers!

In honor of the day of love (or a manufactured holiday of corporate greed) I got to thinking about fictional characters I’m in love with. Ask any of my friends, and they’ll tell you the list is pretty long. I can’t help it! Whether I’m swooning over The OC reruns and wondering where Seth Cohen was for me in high school, or contemplating whether I’d be willing to live in the 1920s if it meant Matthew Crawley could be my boyfriend (yes), if there’s a charming guy on television, I’ve probably wanted to to marry him at some point. Danny from The Mindy Project? Been there. Jim Halpert? Welcome to my 2005. This Valentine’s Day, I’m choosing not to narrow it down any further when it comes to fictional boyfriends. It’s a four-way tie! This (fake) holiday is the best.

Check out some staffers’ picks for their fictional valentines below, and then be sure to tell us what character you’re secretly hoping to have some chocolates delivered from today. READ FULL STORY

'Parks and Rec': The 7 best lines from 'Women in Garbage'

Image Credit: Colleen Hayes/NBC

Last night’s episode of Parks and Recreation tackled the Pawnee City Council’s prehistoric gender relations head on. In an effort to one-up the all-male sanitation department, Leslie and April tried their hand at a garbage route, with mixed results. Meanwhile, Chris struggled to understand his new relationship with Shauna; Ron and Anne babysat Diane’s kids; and Tom, Ben, and Andy attempted to play basketball. Colossal failures and hilarious lines abounded. Here are the best:
