'Parks and Recreation': Did you know RZA auditioned to be Leslie Knope?

Well, if you believe this hilarious little short, hosted by the Roots’ Questlove and posted on Funnyordie.com:

Ha! The randomness of this is too much — just like Parks & Recreation itself! I love when RZA runs into Amy Poehler, who is auditioning after him, and she says: "I've heard the Wu-Tang Clan ain't nuthin' to f--- with." That, right there, is so Leslie Knope — totally earnest and totally out of it. (What a sweetie!) Plus, I split my side when RZA said he was headed to try out for Julie & Julia and when Questlove "revealed" that Amy Poehler only got the role after people like Christina Applegate, Lucy Liu, Doris Roberts, and Ghostface Killah (!) turned it down.

Did you PopWatchers get a good laugh out of this video? Would you watch a similar video about Raven-Symoné trying out for the role of Ron Swanson? (I would!)
