If you’re a fan of Showtime’s massively popular spy drama Homeland, you may be one of the nearly 30,000 followers of the parody Twitter account @SergeantBrody, in honor of the series’ main character. Well, it turns out that none other than Parks and Recreation‘s Tom Haverford, comedian Aziz Ansari is the wit behind the account, which launched on Oct. 29.

The Hollywood Reporter points out that he seemingly posted as @SergeantBrody on his personal account, quickly deleted it and then posted on the parody account. Oops! Ansari only posted five times since the alleged slipup, with the last tweet arriving on Dec. 4. So is this the end of @SergeantBrody?
