Patricia Clarkson, Parks and Recreation
It must have been a challenge for the Parks and Recreation writers to come up with Tammy 1 given Megan Mullally's very memorable work as Tammy 2, a terrorizing sexpot and the second ex of Ron Swanson. They arrived at Tammy 1 as a repressed ice queen who first met Ron as the candy striper who delivered him when he was born. (She later taught him in Sunday school too.) Only Clarkson, with her steely gaze, could make that kind of domineering seem hot to Ron, reducing him into a clean-shaven, can-do trooper overnight.
