Leslie Knope Goes Bowling For Votes on Parks and Recreation

Amy Poehler

Leslie Knope's Pawnee City Council campaign lands in the gutter tonight on Parks and Recreation when she stages a meet-and-greet that turns into a giant alley-oops (8:30/7:30c, NBC). "She does a focus group and there is this one guy who's like, 'I don't know, I just don't like her...she doesn't seem like the person I wanna go bowling with,'" explains star Amy Poehler. "So Leslie, in her usual bulldog way, loses sight of the big picture and spends the whole episode trying to get this one guy to like her. She hosts this bowling event and casually invites the guy in hopes of getting his vote."

Kristen Bell Talks About Getting Dirty in House of Lies, Hope for a Veronica Mars Film

Kristen Bell

She curses, she gets lap dances, she makes raunchy sex jokes. For Kristen Bell's latest role on Showtime's House of Lies, it's safe to say her squeaky clean Veronica Mars persona has officially left the building.

"Being in a strip club in the middle of the afternoon with the lights on was a little unnerving. There's a scene where I have to dance sexily around in my underwear that made me very nervous," Bell tells TVGuide.com. The part "scared me a little bit."

In the half-hour comedy, which follows a team of management consultants and stars Don Cheadle, Bell plays whip-smart, cutthroat "schmooze operator" Jeannie Van Der Hooven. House of Lies marks Bell's first series regular TV project since she played a teen sleuth in cult favorite Veronica Mars, which was axed in 2007. On the big screen, she's co-starred in films Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Burlesque and still voices the title character of  Gossip Girl. "I was excited that Jeannie was very, very different and much more provocative [than Veronica Mars]," Bell says. "It's important to show... read more
