Oprah Winfrey is being sought for a guest starring role on 'Parks and Recreation'.

The media mogul - who quit her long running chatshow after 25 years last month - is the first choice for actor Nick Offerman to play his onscreen character Ron Swanson's former wife Tammy in the TV show because he thinks she is the only person "intimidating enough" to take on Ron's second wife, also called Tammy and played by Megan Mullally.

He told The Huffington Post: "We're going to find out who Ron's first ex-wife Tammy is, and I'm excited to find out why Tammy Two is scared s**tless of Tammy. We're trying to start a campaign to get Oprah to play Tammy One. I think Oprah would be the only, she's the only person we can think of that might be intimidating to Megan Mullally. It would be so good."

He joked: "There's all kinds of ideas being thrown around. I can assure you if it's not Oprah, I will quit."

However, Oprah may not be interested as she recently revealed she was relishing her newfound free time watching her best friend Gayle King on TV with her partner Stedman Graham and preparing for an upcoming holiday.

She tweeted: "Staying in pjs all day. Getting hair braided for summer vaca. Reading all ur emails. Watched Gayle K. Show with Stedman. On at 4-6 on OWN. (sic)"
