Everyone knows her best as April from Parks and Recreation but soon the whole world will be seeing plenty more of Aubrey Plaza.
Plaza is a 27-year-old actress from Delaware (and letâ€™s be honest here, not that many famous folks come from Delaware) best known for her dry, deadpan style of humor. Sheâ€™s had some small movie roles and a few appearances on shows like 30 Rock and Portlandia but it was really Parks and Recreation that put her on the map. Her portrayal of April Ludgate has made her one of the showâ€™s most popular characters and has recently opened new doors for her.
In her first major film role, Plaza plays Darius Britt in the independent comedy, Safety Not Guaranteed. The film won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and has, thus far, received overwhelmingly positive reviews from mainstream critics as well. Later this year, she stars in A Glimpse Into The Mind Of Charles Swan III with Bill Murray, Charlie Sheen and Jason Schwartzman
In 2013, we will see her star alongside Andy Samberg, Rachel Bilson and Bill Hader in The To Do List and she teams up with Shia Lebouf in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman.
