She appeared in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Derrick Comedy's Mystery Team, which debuted at 2009 Sundance. She appeared in a CollegeHumor short alongside Jason Bateman and Will Arnett.

She played April Ludgate in Parks and Recreation from 2009 to 2015. She received wide praise for her deadpan performance and was considered one of the show's breakout characters.

On March 12, 2010, Plaza performed at A Night of 140 Tweets: A Celebrity Tweetathon for Haiti, produced by Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer, Ben Stiller, and Mike Rosenstein, at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles. In 2011, she appeared on Portlandia. Plaza appeared as a guest judge during a roast segment on The Next Food Network Star in 2011. She appeared in Episode 199 of the WTF with Marc Maron podcast. She also had a recurring role as "the Princess" in the comedic sci-fi web series Troopers on CollegeHumor.[19]

In 2012, she was featured in Father John Misty's music video for the song "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings" from the album Fear Fun and in 2014 she was in Cassorla's "Bona Fide" video, in which she made her saxophone-playing debut.[20] In 2012, Plaza earned her first starring role in a major film, alongside Mark Duplass, in the comedy Safety Not Guaranteed. Plaza played Darius, a jaded intern who answers a curious want ad. Her performance was critically acclaimed.[21] She won the award for Breakthrough Performance (Female) at the 2012 Young Hollywood Awards.

In 2013, she had the leading female role as Sacagawea in the Drunk History episode "Nashville" during a segment on Lewis and Clark's expedition.[23] In 2013, she also had the starring role in the CBS Film The To Do List. In an impromptu attempt to promote the film, Plaza ran onto the stage at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards and grabbed Will Ferrell's award for Comedic Genius, inspired by Kanye West's interruption of Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, with a drink in hand while the film's name was written across her chest. She was ejected from the studio lot where the ceremony was held.[24]

At the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, Plaza's film Life After Beth, which was written and directed by her husband Jeff Baena, premiered.[25] Plaza also voiced Grumpy Cat in the Lifetime Network's original movie Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever (2014).[26]

Since 2016: Career expansion edit

 
Plaza at the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards

In 2016, Plaza starred in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates alongside Zac Efron, Anna Kendrick and Adam DeVine. Her role as the rebellious Tatiana earned her critical praise. Then, she was a guest star on Harmonquest, as a gnome named "Hawaiian Coffee" and portrayed Aaron Burr in the "Hamilton" episode of Drunk History.[27] She also provided a guest voice for the SpongeBob SquarePants episode "Mall Girl Pearl" with Betty White.[28]

In 2016, she portrayed Cat Adams, a contract killer, first in Season 11 of the CBS television series Criminal Minds, and then again in Season 12 and 15.[29] In 2017, Plaza both starred in and produced two films, The Little Hours and Ingrid Goes West. The latter premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and later earned the Independent Spirit Award for Best First Feature. Plaza starred as the social media obsessed fan of a celebrity played by Elizabeth Olsen. Variety film critic Peter Debruge praised Plaza's performance writing, "Plaza's tortured performance captures all of this, which is saying something for an actress whose blasé persona hinges on the fact that she can't be bothered: Nobody plays ambivalence better, and yet, Plaza allows herself to seem vulnerable here."[30] In 2018, she starred in the indie comedy An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn.[31]

Plaza starred as both Amahl Farouk / Shadow King and Lenny Busker in the FX series Legion from 2017 to 2019.[32] In both 2019 and 2020, Plaza hosted the Independent Spirit Awards.[33] In 2019, she starred in Child's Play, a reboot of the 1988 film, as Karen Barclay, Andy's mother who brings home a killer doll, Chucky.[34] In 2020, Plaza produced and starred in independent film Black Bear and starred in Happiest Season.

The series stars Plaza (who is also an executive producer), alongside Danny DeVito and Lucy DeVito.[42] On October 16, 2022, Plaza was given the Artist of Distinction Award at the Newport Beach Film Festival.[43] In November 2022, Plaza was cast as witch Rio Vidal in the Disney+ series Agatha: Darkhold Diaries, set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.[44][45]

In 2023, Plaza received backlash for her participation in an ad for the dairy industry that mocked plant-based milk.[46][47] On July 26 it was announced that she would be making her stage debut off-Broadway in the revival of John Patrick Shanley's Danny and the Deep Blue Sea opposite Christopher Abbott.[48] Although the show received mixed reviews, Plaza was credited for making a strong first attempt on stage. She claimed to be nervous to take the stage, although she had done so more than 15 years earlier.[49][50][51]

In 2024, Plaza and her Parks and Recreation costar Nick Offerman reunited in a Mountain Dew ad that aired during the Super Bowl LVIII broadcast.[52]In April 2024, she was confirmed to be starring in the first film from John Waters in over 20 years, after being a friend and admirer of Waters' work.

Plaza had a stroke when she was 20 years old that caused temporary paralysis and temporary expressive aphasia.[58] Several years later, she had a transient ischemic attack while on the set of Parks and Recreation.[5][59][60]

But she has an unusual kind of beauty (Anglo-Irish, Latina) that the camera loves to explore, and when she does make the hyperspace jump to sincerity and initiative, the results are compelling.
