Grumpy Cat Movie: Aubrey Plaza To Voice Sour Feline In Lifetime Original
In the movie, Grumpy Cat (real name: Tardar Sauce) lives in a mall pet store, where she has developed a lousy outlook on life, HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site TVLine reports. One day, a 12-year-old girl named Chyrstal becomes fond of the feline upon realizing she’s the only person who can hear her talk. Together, they stop a pet kidnapping and discover the true meaning of Christmas. Grumpy Cat even saves Chyrstal from a scary situation!
Jane Lynch Passed On The Role
We could not imagine anyone more perfect to voice the grouchy pet, than the equally sullen and deadpan Aubrey. According to TV Guide, the role was originally offered to Glee star Jane Lynch, however, the actress allegedly passed on the offer.
Aubrey joins the cast of what will soon be one of our favorite holiday movies. Already on board are the hilarious Russell Peters and the star of horror flick Mama, Megan Charpentier.
