Aziz Ansari on His Work on ‘Ice Age: Continental Drift’: “Acting is a plum gig, and then animation is an even more plum gig”

Aziz Ansari, star of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, knows that he has it good.

The comedian voices the character Squint in Ice Age: Continental Drift, a gig which he is quick to admit is a pretty easy one.  “Acting is a plum gig, and then animation is an even more plum gig,” he told The New York Times.  “I mean, compared to stand-up, the other main thing I do?  You have to write a whole new hour of material every time you tour.  With acting, I go to the set on Parks and Rec, and it’s just so much writing and refining, and they just hand me a script, and it’s like, Oh, these are hilarious jokes, I’ll just say them in a funny way, and we’re done.”

Ice Age: Continental Drift is in theaters now, and Parks and Recreation will be back on in the fall.
