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 ...

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.

Um, Okay: ‘Lifetime’ Finds Their Missy Elliot And Timbaland For The ‘Aaliyah’ Movie

That Ish Cray Of-The-Day

Okay, I feel a little bad for all of the WTFs I’m about to throw out there because two young actors are somewhere, feeling really excited. They just got cast alongside Alexandra Shipp (who replaced Zendaya Coleman) in Lifetime‘s made-for-TV Aaliyah biopic and I know they feel great. I don’t want to rain on that parade and I am, actually, happy for those actors. I wish them the best in their careers, truly. Now. All that being said… it’s very strange to see that Chattrisse Dolabaille and Izaak Smith are going to be playing Missy Elliot and Timbaland, respectively. I sort of… cannot with this. And I need some help working through this. Click inside for more!

Watch: Here Is Your FIRST LOOK At The Totally Unauthorized ‘Saved By The Bell’ TV Movie

Basically, everyone hated everyone
So. Many. Bad. Wigs.

Back in June we learned that Lifetime TV is producing an unauthorized biopic made-for-TV movie based on the long-running hit 90′s tween show Saved By The Bell. Today, courtesy of Buzzfeed, we get our first look at footage from The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story. As you can see in the clip above, the young actors were full of raging hormones on the set of SBTB which meant there was a lot of in-fighting, apparently. The actors playing the actors are forced to wear really terrible wigs so we KNOW that this Lifetime TV movie is going to rule all. Click above to get your first look at this Saved By The Bell biopic and get excited! The Unauthorized Saved By The Bell Story will air on Lifetime on September 1.
