“I’m the next ‘it’ animal woman of comedy,” jokes rashida jones, calmly cradling a chicken on the set of her v shoot. It is unsurprising that her reassuring demeanor equates to being a natural animal whisperer. She currently stars as the adorable ann perkins on the nbc comedy parks and recreation, and consistently wins over audiences in quality projects such as the office, funny or die, and the muppets. She says that feelings of being a “professional dabbler” (“i’ve been really lucky to dabble with the best”) inspired her to co-write and star in the sundance hit celeste & jesse forever, which was scooped up by sony pictures classics. “there was something inside me that i had to see if i could fulfill—and take the risk of failing,” she says. “i needed to write something [with collaborator will mccormack] that i was at the center of, to see if i could tackle something that big.” the comedy follows a couple (jones and andy samberg) who married young and then grew apart as they negotiate their continued affection for one another even after it’s time to divorce and disentangle. “we felt like we were seeing this kind of story over and over with our friends,” jones says. “and i did have a part of myself as an actress that i hadn’t had an opportunity to share, since i do get typecast as the dependable, affable friend…or maybe slightly bitchier.” with a slew of hits under her belt, she can afford to take a chance on something new—and count a few chickens as well.
