April Ludgate is the most miserable person in a town of obese misery; as the assistant to the head of the Parks Dept. of Pawnee, Indiana, there's no question she won't answer with a droll comment and roll of the eyes.
Turns out Aubrey Plaza's character on "Parks and Recreation" isn't such a stretch.
Plaza appeared on "The Tonight Show" on Friday night, to hilariously awkward results. She gives nearly monosyllabic, uncomfortable answers to Jay Leno's questions, can't introduce her own clip, and more or less admits that she just does what men tell her to do. Which was music to Steven Tyler's ears.
Tyler, who sat next to Plaza during the interview, focused his energy on awkwardly flirting with the young star while she gave her non-responses. When she spoke of being stripped of her clothes and cleaned with baby wipes, the Aerosmith frontman and "American Idol" judge exclaimed "Nice!"; when Plaza discussed a dilemma with her landlord, Tyler let her know that the guy totally had the hots for her.
But perhaps you can't blame Tyler; Plaza did say that she had seen Tyler in her dreams.
All told, it was all in good, hilarious fun. We think.
