Lowe, 45, will play a "powerful person entering our world from the outside," Schur said, and will stick around for some episodes next season. Parks and Recreation was given an early greenlight for Season 3 in January.
The former Brat Packer currently plays Sen. Robert McCallister and husband to Kitty (Calista Flockhart) on Brothers and Sisters. In January, Lowe announced his plans to leave the series by season's end and entered talks about his own ABC franchise shortly thereafter.
Do you think Lowe will make a good addition to the Parks and Recreation cast?
