This Chick Replaced Lindsay

Lindsay Lohan was cast in the upcoming movie, The Other Side, because the producers said she wasn’t “bankable enough”. She was replaced by Olivia Thirlby. An actress whose entire career box office is only $177,609,895. Subtract Juno and it’s $34,114,630. I’m not sure about this, but I think somebody lied. TMZ reports:

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…

Also, Lindsay is reportedly on the “brink of financial disaster” and is so far behind on her rent that she’s about to be kicked out on her ass. Star reports:

The 23-year-old actress turned party girl is $23,000 behind in rent on her Hollywood apartment, an insider tells Star in this week’s issue. “She’ll be evicted if she can’t pony up the cash.” Lindsay’s advisers recently ripped into her over her irresponsible spending. “She was told that she’s racked up more than $1 million in bills that creditors are demanding be settled immediately,” the insider tells Star. Adding to her money woes, Lindsay is being sued by three men for a minimum of $25,000 in damages for allegedly hijacking their SUV while drunk in 2007. Plus, says an insider, “Her managers have also warned her that several people are threatening to file lawsuits against her.” So Lindsay has resorted to selling off designer clothes, purses and jewelry that she received as freebies and the once promising actress has signed on to play drugged-out 1970s porn starlet Linda Lovelace. Claims the insider, “She’s in complete financial ruin.”

Olivia Thirlby was pretty hot in The Wackness and she was forced to say pretentious, unrealistic dialogue in Juno, but maybe I’m not understanding what the word “bankable” means. Or maybe it’s because they know Thirlby won’t show on set six hours late with her panties in her purse and one high heel in her hand trying to sell a microwave she found for coke money. Maybe we’ll just never know, my friends.
