Aubrey Plaza has landed a legendary role…
The 29-year-old half-Puerto Rican actress has signed on to voice a character on Nickelodeon’s animated action-adventure series The Legend of Korra, according to Entertainment Weekly.
During Book 2’s upcoming episodes, Plaza will play Eska, one of Korra’s Waterbending cousins, and whose twin brother, Desna, will be voiced by Joan of Arcadia‘s Aaron Himelstein.
Plaza, who portrays April Ludgate on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, joins a growing list of guest stars, including Lisa Edelstein, James Remar, John Michael Higgins and Adrian LaTourelle.
Book 2 —technically the second half of season one — picks up six months after Book 1 ended with Korra triumphing over Amon and the Equalists. Now she faces an even greater threat “as the physical and spirit worlds collide.”
Consisting of 14 episodes, Book 2 will debut later this year.
The show’s main cast and executive producers will appear at a Comic-Con panel in San Diego on July 19.
