Earlier today, while reporting on Kieran Culkin playing Wallace Wells in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Devin said he was curious to see some of the actresses cast in the film. Now we know one, courtesy of a brief mention in THR: Aubrey Plaza will appear as Julie Powers, girlfriend of Scott Pilgrim’s Sex Bob-omb bandmate Stephen Stills.
The role isn’t big, but it could be a good platform for Plaza, who is right on the cusp of breaking out. Plaza is part of the Upright Citizens Brigade, will appear in Judd Apatow’s Funny People, and just signed to appear in Amy Poehler’s new untitled sitcom.
Now let’s get a Knives Chau in the house, alright?
