Looks like it's going to be the best Christmas ever for everyone looking out for "Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever" this holiday season, as Lifetime has just announced that it has chosen Aubrey Plaza to lend her voice to the Internet's most adorable kitty.

The "Parks and Recreation" actress known for her role as April Ludgate, the apathetic intern who has earned the adoration of the TV-watching public, and her deadpan style of comedy is taking to the small screen to be the voice of Grumpy Cat. Plaza herself has seemed to confirm the news by posting this picture on her Twitter account.

Aside from "Parks and Recreation," Plaza is also known for her role as Eska in "The Legend of Korra" and several guest appearances in "Welcome to Sweden." Plaza has also starred in major roles in big-screen titles, including "Safety Not Guaranteed" and "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World."

Jane Lynch, best known for her portrayal of the notorious Sue Sylvester of "Glee," was said to be one of the top contenders for the role but the Emmy-winning actress ultimately declined, according to Hollywood Reporter.

"Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever" revolves around the story of Grumpy Cat, also known by her real name Tardar Sauce, who lives a lonely life in a pet store where she rarely gets people's attention. Tardar meets a 12-year-old girl named Chrystal, who is played by Megan Charpentier and finds out she can communicate with Grumpy Cat. Along the way, Tardar and Chrystal become good friends and will have to overcome certain obstacles, such as evil dog-nappers and Tardar's generally bleak outlook in life.

Tim Hill of "Spongebob Squarepants" and Jeff Morris wrote the script, with Hill directing the movie as well. Arturo Interian, Lifetime's vice president of original movies, says the film will be "a little 'Home Alone' and a little 'Die Hard.'"

"It brings fun and irreverence that we haven't had at Lifetime," says Interian about the movie. "We're so known for our heartfelt sentimentality that it will poke fun at those stereotypes."

Tardar Sauce's claim to fame was a photo of her posted on Reddit by Bryan Bundesen, brother of her owner Tabatha Bundesen. Since then, Tardar has been featured on the cover of New York magazine and the Wall Street Journal. Recently, she made an appearance on American Idol Season 13 and was honored with a front-row seat at the MTV Movie Awards in April. As of press time, The Official Grumpy Cat Facebook page had more than 6,640,700 likes.

Ben Lashes, who manages Tardar and other Internet memes the likes of Keyboard Cat, Scumbag Steve and Ridiculously Photogenic Guy, says Grumpy Cat spends much of her time at home in Phoenix but adores the attention she gets on the road.
