Aubrey Plaza

Despite director Fredrik Bond having never made a feature film before, The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman is one of my most anticipated films of 2013. The film stars Shia LaBeouf as the title character, a normal guy who falls for a girl already claimed by a violent crime boss, and it follows his exploits as he's beaten down time and time again in hopes of wooing the girl of his dreams. Evan Rachel Wood plays the love interest, Mads Mikkelsen plays the crime boss, and Rupert Grint is even on board in an undetermined role. Now, Latino Review discovered that "Parks & Recreation" and Safety Not Guaranteed star Aubrey Plaza has also joined the cast, which only makes me more excited to see this movie. Read on!

Plaza's part hasn't been revealed just yet, but Latino Review mentions that she's looking to separate herself from the dry, sarcastic characters she's been known for playing lately. She definitely showed more range than usual in Safety Not Guaranteed, but if she wanted to do something a bit more familiar and easily in her wheelhouse, I could see her playing a sort of Julie Powers character from Scott Pilgrim vs. The World in Charlie Countryman, naysaying Charlie's attempts at securing the love of his life. I hope she branches out a little outside her comfort zone, but either way she's a great addition to an already-fantastic cast that also includes Inglourious Basterds star Til Schweiger and Oscar-winner Melissa Leo. Thoughts?
