Bert Macklin is back, baby!

On Thursday's episode of Parks and Recreation, Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt) will realize his dream of always being Bert Macklin, aka becoming a police officer.

"Andy is definitely pursuing a career in law enforcement, and so far that's created some really great stuff," Pratt tells TVGuide.com. "Andy has to train physically because, despite the hard candy shell, he's a little soft, so he's gotta run and train."

Andy will enlist the help of both Tom (Aziz Ansari) and Chris (Rob Lowe) in order to buff up. While Chris seems to be a natural choice, Tom's the wild card — and that's for a reason. "Of course Tom knows nothing about fitness or anything, but he's just doing it so he can get this really cool golf cart that they have," Ansari reveals. 

Parks and Recreation Scoop: Leslie's about to get a rude awakening

Both Pratt and Nick Offerman hope that Ron Swanson will step up to help Andy, as he's done in the past. "I imagine that he'll be available for fatherly advice, and he probably knows the best places to get donuts and coffee and could send Andy there," Offerman jokes. "Maybe there will be a firearm safety episode where Ron walks Andy through cleaning his sidearm." We can't imagine that going over well.
