It's a banner month for Joe Biden: after being re-elected as the Vice President of the United States this past Tuesday, Entertainment Weekly reports that he's crossing paths with Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) on "Parks and Recreation" next week.
Airing on Nov.15 on Citytv, the episode will see Vice President Biden make a cameo when Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott) brings Leslie on a tour of the White House, and introduces her to America's No. 2. The episode actually filmed in July, and according to producers, Biden was more than willing to give them face time.
"His staff really loves the show, and apparently he had watched the show with his family and his family liked it," executive producer Michael Schur revealed to EW. "The hardest part was keeping it secret for so long because there's all these FEC rules and equal time rules. We couldn't air it before the election because it was the equivalent of a campaign contribution to advertise for one candidate."

However, his appearance is far from political: Biden shows up for less than a minute, and because Leslie meets him as her "hero" and not as a candidate, producers say the spot would have worked just as well had he and Obama not won the election.
"They have a conversation where she does what you would imagine Leslie Knope would do when meeting Joe Biden," Schur describes. "She gets really giggly and goofy around him."
This makes sense, considering Ms. Knope has quite the thing for the VP (having once claimed he is not only "on her celebrity sex list [but] is her celebrity sex list"). However, with only 60 seconds of interaction -- and Leslie's fiancé in the same room -- it doesn't seem like there will be much romance between Biden and Leslie. Tragic, considering even the most diehard Leslie/Ben cheerleaders probably would have supported a relationship with America's Vice President.
