Good news for “Parks and Recreation” fans who also like Newt Gingrich: The former House Speaker will be making a cameo appearance on the show.
You might think this had been in the works for months, but no.
According to cast member Rob Lowe, Gingrich happened to walk by the comedy show’s set in downtown Indianapolis. On the spur of the moment, the cast and crew decided to create a new scene so that Gingrich could be included in the show.
Other tweeters confirmed Lowe’s account:

People, chill. It’s just a TV comedy, for goodness sake.
