Parks and Rec to Epic

It was only a matter of time before Aziz landed a sitcom, and he fit in perfectly as Tom Haverford with the wacky but loveable crew running the parks department of the Indiana town of Pawnee in Parks in Recreation (which recently ended). Parks and Recreation isn't his only claim to fame, he's also appeared in movies like I Love You Man and 30 Seconds or Less, as well as voicing characters in the animated movies Ice Age: Continental Drift and most recently as Mub, a snail in Epic.
