    When we asked Ben about his first day on the set of Parks & Rec, he revealed he was only supposed to be in one "tiny, little scene."

    Ben Schwartz: I was just supposed to [be in] one tiny, little scene of me meeting Ron Swanson. I remember getting to set and being in Swanson's office, which was very exciting, and I remember being a little bit nervous.

    Luckily for Ben, Mike Schur — the creator of the hit series — loved his performance so much, he told Ben they were going to bring him back.

    BS: I did it once and Mike Schur, who created the show, came up to me and he said, "We're going to bring you back." It made me feel very confident and excited.

    And the rest is history!
