Parks and Recreation To Do Twilight Themed Episode

Buzz Sugar talked with Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari about an upcoming Twilight episode when the show returns from hiatus.

BuzzSugar: The third episode of the season revolves around the Twilight books, and a few months ago, you live-tweeted the Twilight movies rather passionately. Did you have anything to do with making the storyline happen on the show?
Aziz Ansari: No, but it did help that it was still pretty fresh in my mind, that I knew the movies, I knew all these details. I haven’t seen [the episode] yet so I don’t know what made it in, but there’s a lot of scenes where we improvise stuff, and I remembered real things from Twilight, and I had real questions. That was the funny thing, because Donna is in the Twilight group and she’s read all the books and knows everything, and I’d read a little bit and had a discussion with her for real, so it actually worked out really well for the arc of the story.

Buzz: Have you actually read any of the books?
AA: I haven’t read any of them, I just saw the first two movies. When I did the [MTV] Movie Awards, those were obviously the big movies, so I watched those two movies for research for that, so I knew a little bit about the Twilight world.”

Aziz Ansari: Why He was Watching Twilight Mystery Solved

azizLast week we told you about Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari live tweeting while he watched Twilight. No one really knew what spakred the sudden interest. Now the LA Times showtracker seems to have stumbled on the answer. If this is true, you have to hand it to him for doing research on what is likely to be featured on a one-day gig.

“Insiders tell Showtracker exclusively that the comedian and “Parks and Recreation” star is in final negotiations to host the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, slated to air live June 6 from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City.

Last week, Ansari spent a couple of days live-tweeting his first-ever viewings of “Twilight” and its sequel “New Moon”:

Never thought I’d see a dude pull up in a Subaru Forrester with such authority. … #TwilightAziz

(As of last Thursday, the comedian was still unsure about whether he was Team Edward or Team Jacob.)”

Aziz Ansari Tweets While Watching Twilight

azizActor Aziz Ansari of the sitcom Parks and recreation started watching Twilight and has been Tweeting his reactions. The picture to the left is his reaction to Bella not figuring out Edward was a vampire sooner.

Some of the the better comments (which, FYI do contain non-PG-13 language) include:

“You better hold on tight spider monkey.” Same thing I say anytime a date steps in my Kia Sportage.

“I can’t read your mind, you have to tell me what your thinking…” Now you know how us non-vampire bro’s feel Edward!!

That kid with the six pack is this movie but he’s not in shape yet and he needs a haircut. Weird

Doesn’t the 6 pack kid turn into wolf in New Moon? Hard to believe a person that turns into wolf is into Twizzlers.

Check out his full commentary here. Aziz claims he will be doing the same with New Moon. TY to Christy0611 for letting us know.
