Is Aubrey Plaza's April just a stooge and sullen teen?

Check out this review of Aubrey Plaza's Parks and Recreation character, April Ludgate...

The alchemy that happened with the casting of Modern Family doesn't happen to every show. Or even most shows. Even a lot of the shows that I love right now have somebody in the cast who is, to some degree, a stooge. If you'll pardon the blasphemy, Chevy Chase is funny on Community, but he's not quite operating on the same frequency as everybody else. As played by Aubrey Plaza, April from Parks And Recreation has only just started to be anything other than a sullen teen. The Big Bang Theory's Johnny Galecki is often left behind like an anchor as Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco and (increasingly lately) Simon Helberg soar above him. And so on.

Read more:

Is April just a stooge? I don't think so. I think the development between her and Andy have helped flesh her out as a major character.

Aubrey Plaza heads to Comic Con

Of course, it's totally understandable if you set all plans aside in order to get in line for Thursday's "Scott Pilgrim" panel. It's guaranteed to be a popular one, so get there early (like, waaaaay early)!

6:00-7:00 Universal: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World— Genre-bending filmmaker Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz), graphic novel author Bryan Lee O'Malley, and the cast of Universal Pictures' Scott Pilgrim vs. the World provide a sneak peek of summer 2010's epic of epic epicness.

Joining Wright will be our hero, Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera of Superbad); Scott's two current girlfriends, Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead of The Thing) and Knives Chau (Ellen Wong of Unnatural History); his band, SEX BOB-OMB: Kim Pine (Alison Pill of Milk) and Stephen Stills (Mark Webber of Broken Flowers); SEX BOB-OMB super-fan Young Neil (Johnny Simmons of Jennifer's Body); Scott's awesome roommate, Wallace Wells (Kieran Culkin of Igby Goes Down); and four of Ramona's seven evil exes: Matthew Patel (Satya Bhabha of Fair Game), Todd Ingram (Brandon Routh of Superman Returns), Gideon Graves (Jason Schwartzman of Funny People) and Roxy Richter (Mae Whitman of Parenthood); plus Scott's younger sister, Stacey Pilgrim (Anna Kendrick of Up in the Air), and the obnoxious Julie Powers (Aubrey Plaza of Parks and Recreation). Q&A to follow. In Hall H.

Aubrey Plaza's new Super 8 blog "WhatsInTheBoxJJ"

This is our second post on the topic...

Actress Aubrey Plaza (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Parks and Recreation) is one of many viewers who were impressed by the teaser trailer for Super 8. So, it is perfectly understandable that she would be curious to see what’s inside the train and tweet about it. Seven times. Then make a blog about it just to shout the question “What’s in dat box, JJ?!” Yeah…..maybe she’s a little to into it.

Plaza’s twitter is @evilhag, and her June 11th tweets all basically say the same thing, as the examples below show.

YO @JJ ABRAMS – WHATS in that BOX, dude??!!

yOU GOtta tell me whats in dat box!!!


...She’s talking about the mysterious Super 8 trailer. Now just about everyone would stop there, but she just had to keep on investigating and spreading the word in hopes to get an answer from director J.J. Abrams (who, by the way, has a thing for mysterious boxes). Her brand new blog, “whatsindatboxjj”, has only 2 posts at the moment, and sloppily pleads for an answer.

Go see Aubrey's blog here (most of the comments are on this page):

Aubrey is quite the potty mouth. Nevertheless, as crazy as she is, Aubrey has gotten some comments that have some very plausible theorys, such as…

Chris Fernandez said… I think it’s a solution to stop the Oil spill.
Will Sellers said…It’s the physical embodiment of disappointment.
Adam said…theory: a smaller box
Benjamin Fennell said…It’s knowledge. Knowledge was in the box.
Swifter said…Our future children are in that box, so be careful with it!
And my personal favorite: Anonymous said…It’s Jack. Jack is in the box.

Do you want to steal Aubrey Plaza's MTV look?

Steal the Look: Aubrey Plaza at the MTV Movie Awards

Did you catch the MTV Movie Awards this weekend?

“Parks and Recreation” actress Aubrey Plaza looked hot on the red carpet, and we’re lucky enough to have received tips from mark Celebrity Makeup Artist Mai Quynh to recreate the look.

Face: “For Aubrey’s face, I began by applying mark Matte Chance Mattifying Lotion, which is great for combination to oily skin. I followed by applying mark Face Xpert Flawless Touch Makeup in Honey with the mark Foundation Brush. Next, I dabbed mark Good Riddance Hook up Concealer in Light/Medium around her nose and under her eyes to even out her skin tone. This is one of my favorite concealers because of the way it melts into the skin and blends easily. Next, I set her foundation with mark Powder Buff Natural Skin Foundation to provide enough coverage to combat the hot weather and dusted mark Bronze Pro Bronzing Powder in Pro Golden to her forehead, cheeks, and chin. I finished her face with a dusting of mark Good Glowing Custom Pick Powder Blush in Star Glo along her cheekbones with the mark Angled Contour Face Brush.”

Eyes: “I prepped Aubrey’s eyes by applying mark Please Hold Eye Primer in Light/Medium. I then used the mark All Over Eye Shadow Brush to apply mark I-mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Biscotti blended with Tiki all across her eyelid. Using the mark Angled Contour Eyeshadow Brush, I smudged Espresso into the crease of her eyelid and Tiki along her bottom lash line. To finish her eyes, I applied two coats of mark Lash Splash Hook Up Waterproof Mascara in Black.”

Lips: “For Aubrey’s lips, I used mark Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss in m.powerment Peach for a shiny finish.”


So did Mai Quynh do Aubrey's makeup?

Aubrey Plaza's Interview - the scoop on Parks and Rec

A few interesting tidbits:

Apparently Paul Schneider (Mark) is leaving the show, essentially being replaced by Rob Lowe's Chris as the love interest of Rashida Jones/Ann (that's like her third love interest on the show; so glad they kept Chris Pratt's Andy around).

Also Aubrey gushes on the Will Forte episode. Enjoy...

NBC's Parks and Recreation doesn't return with new episodes until spring 2011, but they already have a bunch of fresh installments in the can. Shooting has been continuing into the summer so that pregnant star Amy Poehler can enjoy her maternity leave in the fall. Amy's co-star Aubrey Plaza, who plays April, says the cast had a particularly fun time shooting an upcoming episode that finds Amy's Leslie Knope putting together a time capsule.

"Leslie wants everyone to put something in there," says Aubrey. "Jerry (Jim O'Heir) puts in some really boring journals because Jerry's boring, and Leslie puts in a text book that she wrote herself about the history of the town."

This is the episode that features Saturday Night Live's Will Forte (of MacGruber fame) as a crazy townsperson obsessed with the Twilight series of vampire books. "He basically handcuffs himself to Leslie's desk because he wants to put a copy of Twilight in the time capsule and she won't let him," says Aubrey. Expect a twist in the end that won't be uncovered until future Pawnee denizens dig up the capsule. Teases Aubrey, "Let's just say it gets buried, but I'm not going to tell you what ends up in it."

Could it possibly departing cast member Paul Schneider, who played Mark? Wouldn't that be a twist!

Casting Aubrey Plaza in Mystery Team

Question: Aubrey Plaza isn't a member of Derrick Comedy. How did you go about casting her? She hadn't really been in anything at the time you made this, but Mystery Team is coming out at a time when she is really taking off with her performances in Parks and Recreation, and Funny People.

Dan Eckman: Actually, I knew Aubrey Plaza back in film school. She was in film school at the time. I had a weird, creepy roommate. And he stalked her. I knew her. She was a comedian around the scene. When we auditioned for Mystery Team, she really wanted the part. I was dead set against casting a comedian. I thought it was the one serious role in the film, and that it should be done by a serious actress. But everyone they brought in was too serious in a bad way. Aubrey was always great. We made her audition three or four times, and she kept nailing it. While we were on the set, my brother taped her audition for Funny People. They did that in the Lumber Yard. She got the part, and we thought, "That was the best decision we ever made in our entire lives." She is amazing in everything. And she deserves everything that is coming to her. When we took this film to Sundance, most of the cast was unknowns. Now a lot of them are emerging. The cast is moving on up. It's hilarious. We can't take credit for it, either. We are just riding the wave. Its not like Mystery Team came out, and then they got famous from that. We are benefiting from the fact that these guys are all very talented, and now people can see them here.

Aubrey Plaza in The Prom Date (with Jason Bateman and Will Arnett)


Orbit Dirty Shorts presents, 'The Prom Date' - the first of a new web content series from Orbit gum that highlights unusually dirty situations and how Orbit cleans it up. In 'The Prom Date' see what happens when Jason Bateman and Will Arnett take on the dirty world of student and teacher dating - and how the parents of the student involved react.

Will Arnett and Jason Bateman unveiled the first digital short from their production company DumbDumb and Ben Silverman’s Electus.

“The Prom Date,” starring Arnett, Bateman, Rachael Harris, and Aubrey Plaza, tells the story of two parents (Bateman and Harris) getting their daughter ready for her senior prom. Of course, she’s not going with just some boy, she’s going with Skip, her soulmate, a word that strikes fear in the hearts of many a parent. Bateman’s wary of Skip’s intentions, commenting on how boys these days “know how to act all polite, and before you know it they’ve got their Facebook all up in your Twitter.”


Okay, so here's the video we were talking about earlier (that Aubrey mentioned). This is hilarious! They're all at the top of their games, and I have to say that I think this is one of the best commercials ever. It's funny, it keeps reminding you of the product in ways that you don't mind (putting the product into the plot), and it features known actors.

It's really a win win. Jason and Will make some money for their online commercial company, Orbit gets eyes on their product, and the actors inject new life into their careers because it's such a hilarious and well-viewed short (currently over 300,000 on two YT vids, and it's pretty new).

So "get his facebook all up in your twitter" is a great line. So is "I once had a soulmate... My sole purpose was to mate with her." And Justin Bateman saying "I had a soulmate once..." turning to his wife, "Did you meet Karen?" Classic!!!

So I think Jason Bateman is the true humor here, but Will's sleezeball is funny in its own way as well.

And finally, It Builds Character found a great catch (in the comments). I was wondering why they said they were out of gum when they clearly were not, and that became a bit of a side plot when Jason found the last piece of gum. So why didn't he just take one from the pack to give Will?

Basically, the mom and dad (Jason and Rachael) didn't put the gum in their mouths yet when they told Will that they were out. That's significant, because they were not yet transformed into their moral selves. So that's why they lied and said they were out of gum. They didn't want to share their gum with the man they hated. But after they chewed their gum, they became moral, and thus, Jason wanted to give Will that piece of gum (probably not understanding the bonus side effect, that Will would also then become moral with their daughter).

Thanks to It Builds Character for the catch!

Aubrey Plaza as Julie Powers in Scott Pilgrim

More movie pics here:

Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera). A bass guitarist for garage band Sex Bob—omb, the 22—year—old has just met the girl of his dreams…literally. The only catch to winning Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)? Her seven evil exes are coming to kill him. Genre—smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) tells the amazing story of one romantic slacker’s quest to power up with love in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Scott Pilgrim has never had a problem getting a girlfriend. It’s getting rid of them that proves difficult. From the girl who kicked his heart’s ass—and now is back in town—to the teenage distraction he’s trying to shake when Ramona rollerblades into his world, love hasn’t been easy. He soon discovers, however, his new crush has the most unusual baggage of all: a nefarious league of exes controls her love life and will do whatever it takes to eliminate him as a suitor. As Scott gets closer to Ramona, he must face an increasingly vicious rogues’ gallery from her past—from infamous skateboarders to vegan rock stars and fearsome identical twins. And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over.

Aubrey Plaza - wtf on MTV Movie Awards

Uh, didn't find this funny at all. Mostly just vommit-inducing.


Saturday, June 5, 2010

Is Aubrey Plaza's dirty mouth going to help MTV get tweets?

Orbit will be called upon to clean up a few dirty mouths during the June 6 telecast. Reprising its role as the official sponsor of the Best WTF Moment -- in a nod to the texting acronym, the award honors the most jaw-dropping scene from a recent theatrical -- the Wrigley gum brand will be incorporated into banter between presenters Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick.

In keeping with Orbit's tag ("Dirty mouth? Clean it up!"), the actresses will present the WTF hardware with a requisite smattering of bleeped-out profanities.

As the bit plays out, both network and sponsor hope viewers will take it to the tweets, providing a real-time metacommentary on the event, the brand and the WTF honoree. (The smart money's on Ken Jeong for his naked crowbar assault in The Hangover.)

Hosted by Aziz Ansari (the comedian stole Judd Apatow's 2009 flick Funny People with his portrayal of potty-mouth standup Raaaaaaaandy), this year's MMAs are pumping up the volume on social media. First rolled out for last September's Video Music Awards, version 2.0 of MTV's Twitter Visualization platform will allow viewers to monitor tweet activity related to the telecast and the individual performers. For example, should singing pinup girl Katy Perry choose to engage in some particularly outrageous on-screen behavior with her oversexed Brit BF Russell Brand, the site's graphic interface would reflect the concomitant surge in Perry/Brand-targeted discourse.

While memorable moments aren't always planned (see Kanye West's ill-advised cameo during last year's VMAs), fans generally don't have to wait long for the first OMFG moment. "A quick strike is critical," said Stephen Friedman, gm, MTV. "Last year we saw an immediate uptick in Twitter activity after the Brüno moment, and that informed the rest of the night. Our audience is always looking for that galvanizing moment."

As viewers LOL'd over the seemingly unrehearsed meeting between Sacha Baron Cohen's unswaddled rump and Eminem's scowling mug, ratings soared. Viewers 12-34 were up 92 percent versus the 2008 show and total viewers improved 78 percent to 5.28 million.

"Social media is the telephone and we're the conversation," said Dan Lovinger, svp, MTV sales and integrated marketing. "Not only do we translate the conversation for our clients, but we're also finding new ways to leverage these social media tools to further engage with our viewers."


On TV tonight!

Seth Meyers interviews Aubrey Plaza (and the rest of the Parks and Rec staff)

Here are the Aubrey excerpts from a panel interview...

Our big emotional cliffhanger in the finale is April and Andy, which was never a combination that we imagined and it came out accidentally," explained [Michal] Shur, [series creator]. "We had the hunting trip episode and we just left them in a room by them selves for a little C-story and then the two of them seemed like that was pretty good so we just thought we would roll with that. It's really because of Chris and Aubrey that it's still incorporated into the show."

"I was a Parks and Recreation nerd to begin with so this has been exciting to come into this world and everyone has been really nice to us ... except for Aubrey," laughed [Adam] Scott. "Yeah well that's kind of her bread & butter," said [Seth] Meyers.

Finally, still obsessed with Plaza and her sarcastic attitude, Meyers inquired about the recent perfect casting of April's sister on the show. "She's actually the daughter of someone in our art department and I guess they cast her because they thought she looked like me," said Plaza. "The scene was that Ron says, Oh you must be April's sister, it's nice to meet you. Then he goes to shake her hand and she rolls her eyes and walks away," explained Schur. "So the audition tapes were just girl after girl rolling her eyes and then walking out of frame. When we got to her, I didn't know that she was related to anyone on the staff, I just knew that she shot the same horrifying chill up my spine that Aubrey does," laughed Schur. "I have two sisters and one is named Natalie, which is probably how April's sister got that name because I used my real sister's name during an improv the first season," explained Plaza. "So she kind of looks like my real sister ... but my real sister is pissed that they didn't cast her."

Is the Parks and Rec cast really okay with the midseason move?

If you haven't heard, Parks and Rec got picked up for a third season, but it got shifted to start in the spring,

I bolded the parts below which suggest that the cast is not really okay with it (they're just coping and hoping)...

Before you go feeling all sorry for the Parks and Recreation gang's scheduling setback, heed our advice...don't. Because we think a brilliant little bald man by the name of George Costanza put it best: "Stuff your sorrys in a sack." (Are Seinfeld references outdated? No way!)

Amy Poehler, Aziz Ansari, Rashida Jones, Nick Offerman and the rest of the cast is doing just fine, and asks one thing of you—tune into tonight's high-larious finale, will ya?

"We really believe in NBC's promise that they're going to find a good home for us," Amy tells us, as sweet as always. "We're really excited about the season we've had and the show's we've shot. I've very confident we're going to find a good home."

"As long as we are still coming to work and there are sandwiches, I'm OK," says Nick, aka Ron Swanson incarnate. Adds Aziz: "It's obviously not ideal. All we can control is making the show and making it great, and we're coming through on that end."

That doesn't meant the P-Rex crew doesn't appreciate the fan support. "Apparently, there's a bit of a public outrage taking place. It makes us feel good," Nick tells us. The ridiculously funny Chris Pratt (Andy) adds: "We've got a lot of great fans. You go to work and you do your best and hopefully enough people watch it."

And in case you didn't know it, the guy is ambitious. "I know this is a long shot," says Chris, "but I'd like to do Parks and Recreation for a hundred seasons." A totally reasonable goal.

Not to rain on any new NBC sitcom parades, but Nick thinks maybe fans of Pawnee won't have to wait very long. "We're shooting six episodes that were meant to be in the fall and might still be. You never know how TV plays out." Either way, Aziz knows we'll love what we see. "People are going to be psyched over the new episodes. It's the best stuff we've done, and I'm excited to come back whenever we do."

We were lucky enough to see tonight's season-ender, "Freddy Spaghetti," and the cast is not steering you wrong. In fact, after watching the finale, the idea of having to wait a minimum of six months before we get to see if Adam Scott's Ben and Leslie Knope get together, or what will be between Andy and April (Aubrey Plaza, who tells us things between the two "come to a head" tonight.") is a little gut-wrenching. But we digress.

"Leslie goes into the summer in season two not knowing if she has a job," explains Amy. "It's really fun because Adam and Rob Lowe play guys that come in and freeze our money." [Editor's note: Rob is the finale standout!]

And as for good ol' Ron, Nick only has this to say of his season-two sendoff: "He is going out and down with a bang." Boo-yah!

Aubrey's costar from Parks and Recreation is hosting...

...Who's going to be the ringmaster of this bright, star-studded happening? Comedy [king] Aziz Ansari of "Human Giant" fame! You've seen him everywhere: opposite WTF-lady Amy Poehler on "Parks and Recreation" (where Aziz turned his Roomba into a DJ); offending and cursing up a storm while doing standup on his Comedy Central special "Intimate Moments for a Sensual Evening"; "Scrubs"; "Reno 911!"; "Flight of the Conchords" ... seriously, the guy's popped up all over the comedy scene.

Aziz'll keep you laughing with his own brand of jokes in between all the awards. Maybe he even picked up a few tips from his "Funny People" co-star (and last year's Movie Awards host) Andy Samberg. He also has ties to raunchy VMA MC Russell Brand, who he'll appear with in the upcoming movie "Get Him to the Greek." Maybe he'll even take a cue from his "The Rocker" costar Rainn Wilson and wear his birthday suit to meet Megan Fox. With all his MTV ties, he'll definitely be a worthy Movie Awards host.


Will Eminem show his face again after being bum-barded by Brüno at last year's show? Will Best Kiss veterans Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson arrive together? And who will be the scene stealer for the Best WTF Moment that your favorite Baby Mama, Amy Poehler, snagged in 2009 for her moving performance of peeing in a sink? (Oh yes, that happened). It's in your hands ... literally.

Aubrey Plaza acting with Jason Bateman and Will Arnett?

So Aubrey Plaza is acting with Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, and Rachael Harris?

What is this for? Will has guested on Parks and Rec.

Check out this tweet from Jason Bateman:

Will and I are still shooting our first DumbDumb spot with [Aubrey Plaza] and [Rachael Harris], although we can't remember who it's for....

So Jason Bateman and Will Arnett are former Arrested Development costars and are business partners for a new company, DumbDumb, which is a production company looking for sponsors to fund online films.

So, it looks like Aubrey Plaza, Rachael Harris, Will Arnett, and Jason Bateman are filming one of those online videos.

Can't wait!

And then Aubrey says....

Will Arnett is totally freaking out on set...dude has some major anger issues. I mean, get it together!
And Will Arnett said,

On set with [Jason Bateman], [Rachael Harris], and [Aubrey Plaza] shooting the first DumbDumb spot, so come on out to Pasadena tonight...wait..don't

Aubrey Plaza - visits a Delaware Idiot

“American Idiot” launched last year in California, at the Berkeley Repertory Theater, before starting previews in New York last month.

At the New York shows, there have been a number of celebrity sightings, such as Neil Diamond, Eric Clapton, Tobey Maguire ...

Fellow Delaware native Aubrey Plaza (NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”) recently stopped by with co-star Amy Poehler and Poehler’s husband, actor Will Arnett.

Gallagher says he caught up with Plaza at Wilmington’s Dead Presidents Pub when he was in Delaware last Christmas. “I’ve actually known her since I was 14,” says Gallagher, whose parents, John and June Gallagher, have performed folk music in the area for years. The couple live in Brandywine Hundred.
