The bizarro ‘Parks and Recreation‘ season 6 castings are at it again, following news that ‘Veronica Mars‘ vet Kristen Bell, Sam Elliott and Billy Eichner will face off as Eagleton counterparts to Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) and Donna Meagle (Retta). The latest to find themselves with an evil (er?) mirror is none other than Aubrey Plaza‘s April Ludgate, whom June Diane Raphael will attempt to out-dour.

TVLine revealed the latest of ‘Parks and Recreation’ season 6′s many doppelganger castings, adding that June DIane Raphael (‘New Girl,’ ‘NTSF:SD:SUV::‘) will play “kind of a rich, boozy, Real Housewives-type,” in words from showrunner Mike Schur. Still unrevealed is the Eagleton counterpart of Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari), as “Tom’s doppelganger is a spoiler. It’s not who the actor is – it’s the concept behind it.”

While Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe will depart this year, Raphael joins fellow ‘Parks and Recreation’ season 6 guest stars Lucy Lawless, supermodel Heidi Klum and Henry Winkler as Jean-Ralphio (Ben Schwartz)’s father. The hour-long September 26 premiere will venture to London largely to accommodate star Chris Pratt’s shooting role in Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ while the latest episodes will continue the many threads started by last season’s finale, Tom’s mysterious “Rent-a-Swag” competitor, and April’s move to veterinary school.

We’ll see the evil Eagleton counterparts of ‘Parks and Recreation’ season 6 over multiple episodes, but what say you? Who could be the next rival to the remaining ‘Parks’ members?
