Turns out that Aubrey Plaza from 'Parks and Recreation' was an NBC Page during the days when Katie Couric was a network mainstay on 'Today.'
Plaza was "asked to leave" her position after a mere four months because "I would just lie a lot," she said on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). Honestly, it was hard for us to tell if she was joking. Couric had the same problem when they had a run-in.
No, nothing bad happened -- in fact, it was Plaza who assisted Couric when the anchor made a "rookie mistake" in the elevator. Given the way she joked with Couric, it appears Plaza was already cultivating that trademark deadpan -- so straight-faced that she had her fooled.
