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...

Lindsay Lohan's countenance has taken on the confused hostility of the drug addict. Someone compared her to Robert Downey? Yeah, well Downey had talent in the first place. That bewildered junkie never had an ounce of that commodity.

Linda: I can't believe it when people blame Lindsay's father for what a wreck she is. She had the sense to cut him out of her life. It's her Mommy who enables her. NOTHING will ever be Lindsay's fault so long as her mother keeps reinforcing that.

She's been in much more than just Juno and The Wackness. I've seen at least 6 movies with her in it. Just because TMZ doesn't know her, don't write her off as some nobody.



She really only takes indie roles though.

Too bad with Lindsey - More talent thrown away. Even if this other girl is not that experienced, I'm sure it is better to have someone actually show up for work.

If I am correct, the picture on the right is Earl Jones, Jr. from the movie, "Conan the Barbarian?"

Good decision. Lohan's name alone will prevent ticket cales. Lohan looks to much like an old worn out MAN nowadays. Too many drugs and too much mental illness.

Either TMZ has some of the most incompetent photogs ever know to man or they photoshop all of these blurry, grainy photos of Lindsay. I mean really, WTF TMZ!? She has a throng of paparazzi following her around 24/7 and the best pics you can get of her are grainy photos that look like they were taken with a cell phone? What a bunch of crap, my 3 year old crappy smartphone can take better pictures then these. Stop photoshopping pics to make people look bad.

actually, i think a lot of people would recognize olivia thirlby. and she's a very good actress, much better than lindsay lohan (especially, you know, since lindsay doesn't show up).
