Nick Offerman and Paula Pell

The third Tammy in Ron Swanson's life has taken form: Saturday Night Live veteran Paula Pell has been cast as Parks and Recreation's Mama Swanson -- or Tammy, Ground Zero if you like.

"The reality of the loss of the show hasn't really hit me yet," Brenda Strong tells TVGuide.com of the series' end. "I have a feeling as the season progresses, it's going to be hard for me not to cry when I do the voice-over simply because it means so much to me and the show has meant so much to me."

However, the actress is getting ready to say goodbye in a big way. Producers have stated that the drama's final season will feature more on-screen appearances by Mary Alice. Following her continued presence during the first season — when the main mystery revolved around why she killed herself — Strong has appeared occasionally in flashbacks and in dreams. "I think it gives a sense of closure when you tie those two story lines back together," Strong says. "I'm really excited to see how they weave the Young family back... read more
