The Wrap – It’s usually delusional to think of people on TV or movie screens as your old friends. But not for “Legion” star Aubrey Plaza.

About a decade ago, before her big break on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” Plaza worked alongside a jaw-dropping number of other young actors also destined for stardom. They included Aziz Ansari, Donald Glover, Ellie Kemper, Kate McKinnon, Bobby Moynihan, and several members of the “Silicon Valley” cast — plus about two dozen more names you’ll recognize.

Plaza listed them for us in the video above, and damn. She crossed paths with a lot of funny people.

Were Plaza and her old cohorts part of a secret laboratory designed to incubate comedy genius? Kind of. They studied and performed together at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, an underground stage that extended beneath a Gristedes grocery store in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. It was famously founded by an original UCB team that included “Veep” star Matt Walsh and “Saturday Night Live” vet Amy Poehler. Poehler, of course, enlisted Plaza, Ansari and fellow UCB vet Ben Schwartz for her seven-season NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation.”
