Three Times a Karen

Rashida Jones, actress and spawn of Quincy Jones and Peggy Lipton, has for some reason portrayed a character named "Karen" three times during her relatively short TV career: Karen Filippeli on The Office, a surname-less Karen on Stella, and as Karen Scarfolli on Freaks and Geeks. Does she simply look like a Karen? Has the hipster comic mafia simply decided to stick her with the name as a running joke? Or do casting agents simply read about a character named Karen on some subtle, offbeat comedy and think, "Hey! What about Rashida Jones?"

Odd.
