Vice President Joe Biden will appear on an upcoming episode of NBC’s comedy “Parks and Recreation,” Entertainment Weekly reports.

Biden’s appearance on the Nov. 15 episode will occur at the beginning, when Pawnee Councilwoman Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler) and her fiancée Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott) take a tour of the White House.

Executive producer Michael Schur said securing Biden for the episode was “so much less difficult than we ever possibly imagined. His staff really loves the show, and he apparently had watched the show with his family and his family liked it.”

In a past episode, Knope said Biden “is on my celebrity sex list — well, he is my celebrity sex list” and said she preferred a man with “the brains of George Clooney and the body of Joe Biden.”
