Actress

Fills Lindsay Lohan's Slot

5/13/2010 5:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's replacement has been named for the movie role she lost because she wasn't considered "bankable" ... and, ironically, you probably don't recognize her.

We're told LiLo's character in "The Other Side" will now be played by Olivia Thirlby -- who's only appeared in a few movies, including "Juno" and "The Wackness."

Well, better safe than sorry...

That actress was great in Juno! :)



If Lilo would get of her lazy a$$ and stop drinking and taking drugs, she might get a job.



If Robert Downey, Jr can get sober and revitalize his career, ANYONE can do it.

Good riddance!    

Watch it all come crumbling down! She did it to herself though. No one put a gun to her head and said to become a complete drug and booze swilling dumbass.

good casting move because of the indie street cred she brings...
plus she has that "it" factor----
something called a work ethic...

These days, people will AVOID a Lindsay Lohan movie. I highly doubt anyone will avoid seeing this movie because they cast Olivia Thirlby.

She's probably uninsurable at this point. What the hell has she done since "Freaky Friday"? WISE UP and save your money for food, LL, otherwise you'll be beholden to the parents you're desperately fleeing from currently.

So are they saying they're actually going to start filming it now? Sorry but i don't believe it. Lindsay's problems are the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this production being unbankable. The movie has been in preproduction for years and something always derails them from filming. Investors have been bailing on this film long before Lindsay was cast in the role... she was just their latest excuse to run away. Give them another couple of years and maybe they'll actually start shooting it, and by then someone else will have been recast in the role... *rolls eyes*

Thirby is a decent actress and cute. I don't think any movie would ever be made with Lindsay in a leading role. They couldn't insure her. No one would touch her now. And probably forever. Porn is Lohan's only option now. And low budget internet fetish porn at that.

They are the same age...both were born in 1986. Lindsay looks twice as old.
