Yep. She sure did. More »

Aubrey Plaza Will Voice Grumpy Cat For The ‘Lifetime’ TV Movie

Most accurate casting choice ever?

This is such awesome news, but first lemme make a confession. I had never seen the Grumpy Cat video until yesterday. I read this casting announcement when PITNBr Iris shared it on Facebook and I was like, Okay. I should probably watch this thing, finally. And it all makes sense now—I was cracking up over that permanent frown! And, I’ll admit it, I’m totally gonna watch Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever now… mainly because Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza has just been announced as the voice of Tardar Sauce (and it’s not a movie I’d have to pay for, anymore).

"What really happened behind the scenes of America's favorite Saturday morning show"
In the beginning ...

Earlier this week we got to see a pretty great trailer for the much-anticipated Saved By The Bell biopic movie that will air on Lifetime on Labor Day next weekend. Today, I have something even better for all of you. Lifetime has released the first 5 minutes of The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story and OH MAN, does it look good.

Watch: Screech Punches Out Zack Morris In This NEW Trailer For ‘The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story’

I'm SO here for this!
"I am NOT Screech!"

Lifetime has released a second trailer for their upcoming biopic made-for-TV movie The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story, which is set to premiere on Labor Day, and as you can see above — it features a LOT of great new footage from the movie. Keep in mind, this TV movie is based on the book that was written by actor Dustin Diamond (Screech) so it will likely offered a view of events skewed in his favor … which is probably why there is a scene in the movie showing the actor playing Diamond punching the actor playing Mark-Paul Gosselaar (which you can see in the trailer above). Have a look and get ready, we are that much closer to the world premiere of The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story on Lifetime on September 1.
