Aubrey Plaza to voice Grumpy Cat

 

Los Angeles: Actress-comedienne Aubrey Plaza has been announced as the voice of Grumpy Cat in a TV movie.

Plaza will be bringing the grumpiest kitty's thoughts to life when the film titled 'Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever' airs on Lifetime this winter, reportedly.

The original actress cast to provide the voice of Tardar Sauce was Jane Lynch of 'Glee' fame, but she dropped out last month, leaving Plaza to fill her shoes.

Plaza is best known as the moody intern April Ludgate on NBC sitcom 'Parks and Recreation', but has recently starred in films such as 'The To-Do List' and 'Life After Beth'.

Her deadpan wit in 'Parks and Recreation' is no doubt what has earned her this latest gig, as her character on screen has much in common with the grumpy little cat who has won over the internet.

The film's plot centers on a cat at a pet store who is always passed over, and the twelve-year-old girl who can communicate with her.

It looks like Tardar Sauce could give Garfield a run for his money, and Plaza is following in the footsteps of acting legend Bill Murray, who leant his voice to the famous feline for not one but two movies; 'Garfield' in 2004 and the sequel 'Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties' in 2006.
