Plaza moved to New York largely to be close to UCB. She got to intern at "Saturday Night Live" and page at NBC, all the while posting online videos, including her dead-on Sarah Silverman impersonation. But it wasn't until she auditioned in L.A. that her career launched. In one week last summer, Plaza landed three major roles: Seth Rogen's love interest in Judd Apatow's "Funny People," Amy Poehler's intern on NBC's "Parks and Recreation" and a part in next summer's "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World."
