I feel like I keep bringing you guys down first thing in the morning, but this really needs to be addressed. Aubrey Plaza, April Ludgate herself, will be doing the voice for Grumpy Cat in an upcoming Lifetime movie about Christmas. Writing that sentence made me sad.
In Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, premiering November 29 at 8/7c on Lifetime, Grumpy Cat stars as a pet store feline who’s never chosen for adoption — which leads to her sour outlook on life. Along comes a 12-year-old girl, who can actually hear Grumpy Cat talk. The two eventually go on adventures together and, yes, discover the true meaning of Christmas.
So on the one hand, if you were to imagine Grumpy Cat’s voice, of course it would be Aubrey Plaza. No one deadpans the way she does. On the other hand, why would you do that, Aubrey? Did you, like Bill Murray, mistakenly believe that his movie is being directed by the Coen Brothers? Because I’m not sure why else you’d be up for this.
Unless of course this is some sort of long con April Ludgate prank. In which case I take back all of my doubtful statements, and love you even more.
