Aubrey Plaza Grumpy Cat Voice: TV Star Signs on for Lifetime Special

By    |   Thursday, 18 Sep 2014 11:28 AM

Aubrey Plaza, who stars as April Ludgate on NBC's "Parks and Recreation," is taking on a new role for the holiday season: the voice of Grumpy Cat.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Plaza has signed on to voice the irritable feline, who shot to stardom as everyone's favorite online meme in 2012, in a Lifetime TV holiday special called "Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever." "Glee's" Jane Lynch was initially cast to verbalize Grumpy Cat's inner grumblings in the live-action project, but she reportedly dropped out after her Emmy win for "Hollywood Game Night."

Grumpy Cat, whose real name is Tarder Sauce, was born with dwarfism, an underbite, and dark patches under her eyes, giving the feline her trademark frown and supposedly "grumpy" disposition that has made her an Internet sensation, according to CBC News. 

"She is a beautiful cat. She's also imperfect," said Grumpy Cat fan Andrea Ford, explaining the feline's attraction for so many people to CBC News. "I think that's what's really nice about her. Everybody has stresses and negativity, and when you see this cat, you can't help but be happy."

"I think everybody needs to laugh, and everybody needs to lighten up a little bit. And when you poke fun at the negativity, you're just going to smile," Ford continued.

The Hollywood Reporter wrote that the move will include cameos from other famous Internet memes as well. Grumpy Cat already has a book and coffee products under her belt, according to THR.

Many on social media seemed excited about the prospect of Plaza voicing Grumpy Cat.






"Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever" is scheduled to air Nov. 29 at 8 p.m. EST on Lifetime.
