Jenny Slate is about to become a movie star thanks to the Obvious Child trailer. The comedic actress, best known for her TV roles on Saturday Night Live, Parks and Recreation, House of Lies and others, plays her the lead character, Donna, in the Gillian Robespierre film. She’s a stand-up comedian whose life gets turned upside down when a one-night stand with an unlikely man leaves her pregnant.
