Jean-Ralphio From 'Parks And Recreation' Auditions For Roy Hibbert's Area 55

Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert continues collecting audition videos from fans trying out for season tickets in Area 55 and now he's added some star power to the proceedings. Actor Ben Schwartz, better known as Jean-Ralphio on the sitcom Parks and Recreation, has submitted his entry to join the madness in Area 55.

Check out the video submission at, although I think Schwartz took things a little far. Hopefully Hibbert will be back for the season.

Of course, Jean-Ralphio set up Hibbert's signature line in his initial appearance on PnR, when he decided Ben Wyatt needed a nickname and thus dubbed him Jell-o shot. This lead to a scene later in the episode when Hibbert greeted Ben by deadpanning, "Sup, Jello- shot?"

Here's the pair teaming up early in Big Roy's appearance with Detlef Schrempf.
