Where’s Adam Scott?
Amidst the excitement of Parks and Recreation gracing the cover of Entertainment Weekly, many fans were quick to question the absence of Adam Scott (a newly appointed P&R regular). Well, Entertainment Weekly has defended themselves, explaining on their website that Scott had been stuck in New York while filming Friends With Kids (a movie slated for 2012 release with Jon Hamm and Megan Fox) due to a snow storm. They also included the following statement from Scott (which was the real reason behind me posting this thing):
“Being a lifelong New Yorker (I grew up in Northern California and live in Los Angeles), when Entertainment Weekly called and begged me to be on the cover of their magazine (the show I’m on, Parks and Rec, was going to be on the cover, and thus I would ride its coattails) and that the shoot would be anywhere but Manhattan, I, of course, said no (yes).
To even consider leaving my fair city (I’ve never lived here) makes me literally vomit (not literally, actually not at all). So the decision was easy: I’d triumphantly stay in New York (I’m working on a movie here, and due to a giant storm, all flights were cancelled) while my fellow castmates mug it up in EW (I’m a subscriber). Victory (devastation)!!!
