Here's Parks and Recreation's Aubrey Plaza on Conan last night, telling him about her self-sex scene in her new movie, The To Do List, the filming of which involved a bunch of old guys smoking cigarettes watching her.

That's pretty surprising because most zombie movies aren't fucked up and are pretty clean and family friendly, so it's nice to know Life After Beth will be taking a different path. Production will presumably take place during Aubrey Plaza's hiatus from Parks and Recreation this [...]
