Nonetheless, Slate’s biggest break in 2013 came on the NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation,” where she made her first appearance in the Season 5 episode “Bailout” as Mona-Lisa Saperstein, twin sister to Jean-Ralphio Saperstein, played by Ben Schwartz. The episode also co-starred Jason Schwartzmann, with whom Slate had worked on “Bored to Death.” Slate became a recurring character on the show, and a regular fixture in the town of Pawnee, in which the show was set. Her final appearance was in the show’s series finale, “One Last Ride,” where she was last seen helping Jean-Ralphio fake his own death.
Slate followed up that appearance by re-teaming with Robespierre for the feature-length version of “Obvious Child” in 2014, once again working with her in 2017 for the film “Landline,” where she co-starred alongside Edie Falco and Jay Duplass. Slate also appeared in the 2016 film “Brain on Fire,” alongside Chloe Grace Moretz, the 2017 film “Gifted” alongside Chris Evans, and in the FX dramedy “Married” alongside Judy Greer and Brett Gelman.
She went on to make her comics film debut in 2018 with “Venom,” in which she played Dr. Dora Skirth, a scientist at the Life Foundation experimenting on the symbiotes.
Slate’s star continues to be on the rise, and this is surely not the last anyone has heard of her.
