    CONAN Highlight: Aubrey’s "Legion" character Lenny was written for a middle-aged man, but for some reason the showrunner thought Aubrey would be perfect for the role.

This is one of the reasons the shadow king was such a compelling villain, Aubrey Plaza brought so much charisma and sexual power to this role that now I can't imagine it being played by a man to the same degree of success.

Her character "Lenny" is very well done. If she can portray this role as eloquently as this and is in reality "odd" or "nervous" she is a force to be recognized. Truly great acting.

SPOILERS: He asked if she was a shapeshifter, and she says, "what, in real life?" Then she looks to the side and says "Of course not". (The Shadow King does shapeshift: Lenny and the Angriest Boy for example) Conan clarifies that she's not playing an older man, and she replies "its complicated and hard to explain." (The Shadow King is actually playing as Lenny) She says, "I am many things and an Old Man is one of them." (Which is actually quite literal in the show and yet you'll take it as a figurative statement because Conan said jokingly, "That quote will follow you for the rest of your life" Implying he took it to mean herself not her character) It was all clever double entendres that you can easily overlook.

"I am many things, and an old man is one of them." That's literally the best explanation she could have given without spoiling anything XD This show is so epic and wonderful and trippy and confusing and brilliant. I only have one tiny, minor gripe about it, and everything else is perfection. Love love love it, and Aubrey is SO GOOD in it!

It seems like her awkwardness is extremely forced, compared to really awkward celebs like Kristen Stewart or Michael Cera, which make her jokes much more cringeworthy, but it seems like I'm in the minority who believes this.
