‘Parks And Rec’ Bro Jean Ralphio Voices BB-8 From ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ And It’s Phenomenal

Now, we have his character Tom Haverford’s fugged-up friend on the show, Jean-Ralphio Saperstein, voicing the droid BB-8 from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The man behind the Co-creator of Entertainment 720 and Salesman at Lady Foot Locker, Ben Schwartz, actually served as a voice consultant on Episode VII along with Saturday Night Live‘s Bill Hader, which sounds (haha) like a complete joke, but it’s apparently legit.
Here’s the original cut of Jean-Ralphio bringing BB-8 to life from Tumblr:

If you haven’t watched Parks & Rec, it’s worth a week of your life for Ron Swanson alone. Jean-Ralphio’s just icing on the comedy cake. It’s hard to pass up on a program that features “one of the funniest recurring characters on TV“.
“Ain’t nobody got time for that!”? Okay, you just want more Jean-Ralphio. Well, if you can withstand awful aspect ratios – here’s a highlight reel of his best moments:
