A popular cast member from the NBC comedy series “Parks and Recreation” will do some moonlighting as Grumpy Cat. EW.com’s Inside TV reports that Lifetime cast Aubrey Plaza as the voice of the grumpy-looking feline, who has become an Internet meme, in the cable channel’s new live-action film.
Plaza, who plays April Ludgate on “Parks and Rec,” will provide the voice for the cat in “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever,” which is written by Tim Hill of “Alvin and the Chipmunks” and Jeff Morris of “The True Memoirs of an International Assassin.”
The film follows the cat, whose real name is Tardar Sauce, as it becomes grumpy living in a mall pet shop. A 12-year-old girl who can communicate with the animal rescues the cat from the shop on Christmas Eve. The movie will debut Nov. 29 at 8 p.m.
