This makes me feel like sharing this just a little bit more than I usually would. I might usually just keep it for a rainy day.
So I feel you, Aubrey. She was definitely the only good part of Funny People, which otherwise just dragged on, especially her scenes with Jason Schwartzman. Her dynamic with Andy (aka Bright from Everwood *swoon*) on Parks and Rec is great. Aubrey’s right behind Kat Dennings in the running for who gets to be my new best friend, followed closely by Alia Shawkat, with the list dominated by long-time favorite Lizzy Caplan. Become a funny brunette actor who is almost on the cusp of superstardom, and you too can be in the running!
(Just to recap, it’s:
1) Lizzy Caplan
2) Kat Dennings
3) Aubrey Plaza
4) Alia Shawkat
If you’d like to compete with one of these ladies, chances are you need a new name, because they all have really cool ones. I have high best friend name standards.)
“I don’t want to put too much stock in it, but I sort of feel like if I get this it will pretty much validate every single decision I’ve ever made in my entire life that led me to this moment.” — Casey [aka the awesome Lizzy Caplan] from Party Down, re: potentially getting a part in an Apatow movie.
