Retta, 'Parks and Recreation'

<b>You know her as:</b> Mercedes Benz-loving, self-treating Pawnee parks department worker Donna Meagle
<br><br>
<b>Why we like her:</b> Retta, who's also stand-up comic, doesn't often take center stage on "Parks and Rec," but she plays brilliantly off of pretty much everyone in the cast, often acting a little bit like a Greek chorus commenting on the rest of the action. (She also has one of the best look-at-the-camera faces this side of Jim Halpert.) Donna's live-tweeting of a cheesy horror movie in the "Halloween Surprise" episode this season -- which mirrors <a href="http://twitter.com/unfoRETTAble"><b>Retta's prolific TV tweets</b></a> -- was a particular standout.
<br><br>
<b>Where else you've seen her:</b> She had a "Comedy Central Presents" showcase several years ago and has made a slew of TV guest appearances, ranging from "Moesha" to "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."
