……the biggest reason to rush out and see Funny People next weekend is her:
Aubrey Plaza….I can’t help it, this girl’s got me. Wish there was more of her on Parks and Recreation, delighted that she’ll be a part of Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim flick, curious to see this quirky indie comedy Mystery Team only for her presence.
All about her, folks. She seems accessible, cool, unassuming. All perceptions, possibly unfounded and moronic, slightly puff-piece-level. Who cares, though? I’m growing tired of longing for Olivia Thirlby; riding her fan-train is like boarding that passenger car from The Twilight Zone episode “Stopover in a Quiet Town,” going in circles with no new destination in sight. Thirlby seems forever locked into the subterranean pits; Plaza, however, feels ready to explode through the manhole, set to land smack dab under the streetlights.
Every guy needs his quiet, lefty crush. You’ve just met mine.
