After 7 seasons, both The Mentalist on CBS and Parks and Recreation on NBC have wrapped up their final seasons. Actors Tim Kang and Aziz Ansari were a big part of both shows.

Kang played agent Kimball Cho, a no nonsense by the book character. He even had a brief love interest on the program.

Ansari played the ‘out there’ character Tom Haverford.  His performance on Parks and Rec helped Ansari build a loyal fan base.
