'Parks and Recreation' hits up Colts, Pacers

January, 14, 2013

This Thursday night, the gang at NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” hits Indianapolis, where they’ll mingle with and, at times, annoy the hell out of local pro athletes.

For starters, Adam Scott (who plays Ben), Nick Offerman (Ron), Chris Pratt (Andy), Rob Lowe (Chris), Aziz Ansari (Tom) and Jim O’Heir (Jerry) visit Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Indianapolis Colts, for a bachelor party with guest stars Andrew Luck and Reggie Wayne.

(You can check out a deleted scene, above, courtesy of NBC.)

Elsewhere, the fellas bump into Newt Gingrich at a local steakhouse, where Pacers big man Roy Hibbert picks up their tab -- that is, until Roy notes the presence of Ansari’s Tom.

That scene, which made the cut, is below.

Catch "Parks and Recreation" on NBC at 8:30 p.m. ET Thursday.
