Aubrey Plaza will be the voice of Grumpy Cat in Lifetime movie

Today in casting so perfect it’s like God himself did it, Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza will lend her voice to Grumpy Cat in Lifetime’s live-action Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever.

The movie, written by Tim Hill (Alvin and the Chipmunks) and Jeff Morris (The True Memoirs of an International Assassin), follows a lonely cat (played by Grumpy Cat herself, Tardar Sauce) who becomes, well, grumpy living in a mall pet shop. That is, until a 12-year-old girl named Chrystal realizes she can talk to the feline. On Christmas Eve, Chrystal rescues her after the mall closes.

Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever will premiere on Lifetime Saturday, Nov. 29, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
