Interview tease: Aubrey Plaza of 'Safety Not Guaranteed'

Check back in a few weeks for my full Q&A with Aubrey Plaza about her first starring role--in the funny, surprisingly romantic "Safety Not Guaranteed," opening June 15. For now, here's a sneak preview from today's phone interview, when I asked about the possibility of April and Andy procreating on"Parks and Recreation."

I love April and Andy’s relationship on “Parks and Recreation.” What would it be like if they had a child, and how likely is that to happen?

I want a child so badly on that show. Every episode I did last season I would do a talking head and talk into the camera and say my lines, and then I would always add, “And also, I’m pregnant.” And then they’d be like, “Cut. Do not say that. That’s not in the script. You’re not pregnant.” And I wanted it so bad and they have not given it to me. And I fear that I want it so bad that it will never happen. But I think April and Andy would be the most amazingly terrible but awesome parents in the world. I hope to god that they impregnate me with a TV baby but we’ll see.

What would that kid be like?

The most ADD nuisance in the world. Just all over the place but then maybe also very mellow. It would be a very weird combination of crying and hiding and being crazy and not crazy.
