Miri: "These are the exact circumstances people find themselves in right before they start having sex for money. What, you have an idea?"
Zack: "We could make a porno!"
Miri: "Not the idea I was looking for."

Casting[edit | edit source]

Originally, Rosario Dawson was going to play Miri. However, when filming was moved from November to January to accomodate Seth Rogen's schedule, Dawson was no longer available due to her commitment to filming Eagle Eye with Steven Spielberg. A short list of six alternate actresses was drawn up; because it was alphabetical, Elizabeth Banks' name was at the top. When Seth Rogen saw the list he warmly endorsed having Banks play the role, and she agreed to take the part.[1]
