Any tips for securing big name (sort of) talent for an indie pilot?

I am trying to make an indie pilot I wrote, more or less to try and get my name out there in the hopes that I will be able to get noticed and maybe get a low level staff job or something on a "real" show.
There is a very small part I think would be perfect for comedian and actor Aziz Ansari, and lucky for me if his history stands true he should be in town a lot in the next couple of months, and we would just need him for a day.
The question is, how do I go about trying to get this to him? I have one contact, sort of, that I don't know if he would has any motivation to help me.
Any tips? I think it's a funny script, my line producer thinks it's funny and most of the people that have read it, or helped with it to this stage have thought it had real promise.
