Aubrey Plaza photographed for NY Post’s Alexa

In honor of “Legion” premiering tonight in the United States, Aubrey is featured on the cover of the February issue of the New York Post’s Alexa. High-quality outtakes of the shoot, photographed by Scott Council, have been added to our gallery:

[About the end of Legion] “People are going to be very shocked at where she ends up at the end of the season […] Nothing is as it seems.”

[About Jeff Baena] “We’re so obsessed with movies […] That’s why we’re making movies together.”

[About how she dresses in everyday life] “I grew up wearing a uniform for most of my life, so I think that’s probably why I don’t go too crazy with fashion […] Any kind of loose, baggy gray sweater? I want it. I just wanna wear a gray sweater all the time. Maybe that’s a leftover New York thing.”

[About deleting her Twitter account] “There was a time when it seemed really fun, but it seems to be a place that’s more toxic than fun for me, with the political stuff […] It started to feel unhealthy, and I didn’t need that in my life anymore.” (Source)

OBSERVER – If you are standing right now, I suggest you sit down, because we’re going to begin with some truly shocking news: Aubrey Plaza is not a 50-year-old man.

Truthfully, this should be clear to anyone who has followed Plaza on her rise to stardom over the years—the seven seasons portraying the human embodiment of an eye-roll, April Ludgate, on NBC’s Parks & Recreation, her quieter standout roles in indies like Safety Not Guaranteed and Ned Rifle, or more recent big-screen endeavors like Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates. Certainly, it’s clear to me, sitting across from the actress at a Los Feliz noodle bar, a month before she’s set to co-star in Legion, FX’s Marvel-universe mind-bender from Fargo creator Noah Hawley.

But is it clear to Hawley? Harder to say. In the original pilot script for Legion, Hawley wrote the character of Lenny Busker as a male, middle-aged former drug-addict, the resident, older sage of Clockworks Psychiatric Hospital, providing both optimism and advice to our mutant main character David Haller (Dan Stevens). The question becomes, What made the writer-director, after a single meeting with Plaza, decide the 32-year-old actress would be a perfect fit for the part?

“Honestly, I don’t know, and I don’t want to know,” she says and laughs, before changing tact. “I mean, no, I get it. I think that maybe that’s my real, underneath persona, and at heart, I’m like a 50-year-old drug addict living in a mental hospital. And Noah saw that’s who I am, really, underneath it all.” (read more at the source)

Sundance: Neon Buys ‘Ingrid Goes West’

VARIETY – Neon has bought North American distribution rights to “Ingrid Goes West” out of the Sundance Film Festival, Variety has learned.

To nab the comedy-drama it beat out the likes of A24 and Netflix, both of which were in the hunt. The film is a satire of the digital age, chronicling the exploits of an unstable woman (Aubrey Plaza) with an obsessive streak. She follows Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen), a social media star, out to Los Angeles, after becoming fixated on her seemingly perfect life.

In addition to Plaza and Olsen, “Ingrid Goes West” stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Wyatt Russell, and Billy Magnussen. It marks the feature film directorial debut of Matt Spicer.

Sundance marks a coming out party of sorts for Neon, the recently christened indie venture from former Radius-TWC chief Tom Quinn and Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League. The company is also using the festival to screen “Colossal,” a monster comedy with Anne Hathaway that it picked up out of the Toronto Film Festival.

The second snow storm in as many days is blanketing Sundance, but despite the chill, the acquisitions market at the festival is heating up. On Saturday, Variety broke the news that Amazon had landed the comedy “The Big Sick” in a blockbuster $12 million pact, and earlier Sunday, Sony Pictures Classics picked up rights to “Novitiate,” a religious drama.

CAA negotiated the deal for “Ingrid Goes West.” Star Thrower Entertainment and 141 Entertainment financed and produced the film. The producers include Jared Ian Goldman, Star Thrower Entertainment’s Tim and Trevor White, 141 Entertainment’s Adam and Robert Mirels, and Aubrey Plaza. Mary Solomon, Rick Rickertsen and Allan Mandelbaum executive produced the picture.
