Michelle Obama says a pledge by the construction industry to hire 100,000 veterans by 2019 isn’t only the right thing to do, it’s a smart thing for business. Some 100 companies and associations in the construction field are announcing their veterans’ hiring commitments on Monday, Feb. 10, 2014, at a conference organized by the Labor Department and the initiative Joining Forces. Joining Forces is a nationwide effort launched in 2011 by Mrs. Obama and the vice president’s wife to rally the nation around military veterans. (Associated Press file photo)

WASHINGTON — The cast of NBC's "Parks and Recreation" is getting a new member for a night: Michelle Obama.The first lady's office says Mrs. Obama will appear on the show's season finale on April 24.

The show's Twitter account said it's "time to get real about Pawnee's obesity." It's a reference to Pawnee, Ind., the fictional town where the show takes place, and the first lady's campaign against child obesity.

The show's star, Amy Poehler, lent the campaign a hand earlier this week when she appeared at a "Let's Move" event in Miami, where Mrs. Obama joked that she and Poehler are best friends.

Mrs. Obama won't be the first White House figure to appear on the show. Vice President Joe Biden made a cameo on the show in 2012.
