Thanks to all the people who wrote in to point out that Knives Chau, the young girl Scott Pilgrim dates (or, more to the point, rides the bus and occasionally holds hands with) has been cast. Ellen Wong will play the young Knives, a high school girl suffering from severe infatuation, in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. The info was way at the bottom of Empire’s article covering Aubrey Plaza’s deal to join Edgar Wright’s adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s story.
I couldn’t even find a good picture of Ellen Wong at first, but thankfully Edgar Wright’s daily photo blog has delivered the goods. That’s some of Ms. Wong and Mr. Wright, with a nice sketch of Knives Chau hanging above them.
