Looks like Oprah proved too difficult a get. Producers of Parks and Recreation have cast Patricia Clarkson to play Ron Swanson‘s evil first wife, Tammy 1.

“We talked about pretty much every possible iteration of who she is and what her backstory is and all we knew is that we didn’t want to do the same thing we did with Tammy 2,” Mike Schur,’Parks and Recreation,’ executive producer said told TV Guide. “Tammy 1 is her own specific brand of demon. I think we came up with backstory for her that’s both funny and illuminating and also answers all of the questions that you would have when seeing people’s reactions to her presence in the finale.”

Clarkson will appear in at least two episodes as the only woman capable of intimidating Tammy 2, who is played by Nick Offerman‘s real life wife Megan Mullally. I tried bringing my wife to work once but that was the day we reported on the Blake Lively nude pictures leak. It ended poorly.
