MEET AUBREY PLAZA: The 'Parks & Rec' Star About To Take Over The Big Screen

Aubrey Plaza

You may not know her name—yet—but you know Aubrey Plaza‘s face.

You can catch the 27-year-old Delaware native every Thursday night starring as the deadpan April Ludgate alongside Amy Poehler on “Parks and Recreation.”

If that’s not ringing any bells, you may have seen her as Seth Rogen‘s love interest in Judd Apatow‘s “Funny People,” the foul-mouthed friend in “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World,” or starring in countless web videos for CollegeHumor, FunnyorDie and Upright Citizen’s Brigade.

And her spot-on Sarah Silverman impression is not to miss.

Plaza has a slew of films with all-star casts set for release this year and if you like to laugh, we think it’s time you put this looker on your radar.

1984: Aubrey was born in Delaware to an attorney mother and financial advisor father. Her father is Puerto Rican and her mother is of Irish and English descent. She has two younger sisters.

2006: Aubrey graduated from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. While there, she suffered a stroke that caused temporary paralysis but has since fully recovered.

Coming Up:

In June, Aubrey and Kristen Bell star in 'Safety Not Guaranteed.' Watch the trailer below.

In November, she stars in the Roman Coppola film 'A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III' alongside Charlie Sheen, Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman.

In 2013, she can be seen in 'The To-Do List' co-starring Rachel Bilson and many 'SNL' cast members about a high school grad who feels pressured to become more sexually experienced before she goes to college.
