Michelle Obama To Guest Star On 'Parks & Recreation'
Michelle Obama took some time off from her First Lady duties to film a cameo appearance on hit comedy sitcom Parks and Recreation.
Michelle Obama To Appear On Parks & Rec
Obama filmed her scenes in Miami earlier this week, while she was in the Florida city for her “Let’s Move” initiative that addresses the pervasive issue of childhood obesity in America. The First Lady will appear on the show, which focuses on the shenanigans of a local government office, on its season finale, reported Entertainment Weekly.
Parks and Recreation's season finale, titled "Moving Up," will be a full hour and air on NBC on April 24.
Michelle Obama is far from being the first person in the Washington sphere to guest star on Greg Daniels and Michael Schur's hit series. In the past, the show has managed to recruit Vice President Joe Biden, senators John McCain and Barbara Boxer and former congressman Newt Gingrich to make guest appearances.
Obama is currently celebrating the fourth anniversary of her “Let’s Move” campaign, and has been speaking publicly about the importance of the country's youth focusing on their health, rather than on appearances. Mother to Sasha and Malia with her husband, President Barack Obama, the first lady practices what she preaches.
“We don’t talk about weight. We don't talk about physical appearance,” Obama told Today’s Jenna Bush Hager, herself a former first daughter. “We talk about health. We talk about what's on the inside. We spend so much more time talking to our girls about being kind and treating others well, and being passionate and respectful.”
