He’s made cameos in several movies, but could a television sitcom guest appearance be in Jimmy Buffett’s future?

The producers and writers of NBC’s Thursday night show ‘Parks and Recreation,’ starring SNL alum Amy Poehler, want Jimmy to play the father of one of the characters:

Cast member Aziz Ansari aimed high and shared his desire for Usher to be revealed as Tom’s brother — preferably making his grand entrance by being lowered dramatically in from the ceiling. When talk turned to the oft-mentioned but elusive Mayor Gunderson, Poehler admitted that she would love for Bill Murray to play the part. There was also talk of Jimmy Buffett being brought in to portray Leslie’s father — executive producer Michael Schur revealed that there’s still a note in the writer’s room that simply reads ‘Jimmy Buffett’, since they’re still aspiring towards him.

    I would LOVE to see Jimmy in a sitcom. That would be so much fun. I know he is getting ready for his tour, etc. but I just have not seen or heard enough about Jimmy B. lately.

      I totally agree! I miss you Jimmy! My fin is curling downward — a sad state of affairs!
