We know and love her as the sarcastic and oh so GIF-worthy April in "Parks and Recreation," but Aubrey Plaza is really flexing her film muscles lately.
While promoting her new movie "Safety Not Guaranteed," she let slip that she's heading to Romania to film "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman" with Shia LaBeouf next month. Evan Rachel Wood also stars in the LaBeouf's passion project that's finally getting off the ground.
Plaza wouldn't dish any details on her role in the movie, but she's joining a robust cast that includes Mads Mikkelsen, who just scored a big win at Cannes for his role in "The Hunt," Oscar-winner Melissa Leo, gingery Rupert Grint and Til Schweiger.
Although we love Plaza as the slightly anhedonic April, it's cool to see her appear on the big screen too. Her latest turn on the big screen, "Safety Not Guaranteed," opens on June 8. It's her first starring role, as a reporter investigating a man who wants a companion to travel with him through time, shows a slightly less acerbic side to her repertoire. Mark Duplass plays the lovelorn time traveler Kenneth, and Jake Johnson from "New Girl" is her boss Jeff.
