Aubrey Plaza - "Parks and Recreation" FYC Clip : "Parks and Recreation" is filled with memorably, jolly, optimistic characters -- and April Ludgate. Though she's secretly just as caring as the rest of them (okay, maybe not Leslie), April usually shows an alarmingly cold exterior. Well, it would be alarming if Aubrey Plaza didn't portray her with such strangeness. Somehow she makes Aprils sharp edges soft, and she's all the more pleasurable for it. Don't tell her I said that.
