There are many things we never thought we'd have to write a headline for in this business. This is definitely one of them.

Acclaimed auteur and general nutcase Werner Herzog is to have a cameo in the final season of Parks & Recreation with Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman.

Let that sink in. The guy who directed Bad Lieutenant - which featured Nicholas Cage waving a giant handgun whilst having sex with a woman in a carpark while her boyfriend watched - is getting a cameo on a family-friendly TV sitcom.

Herzog turns up as a homeowner who's looking to sell his house to two main characters - we're guessing it's Leslie and Ben - so that he can move to Florida and be closer to Disneyland.

Yeah, we're still not processing this one. So here's a .gif of Ron Swanson dancing.
