The 'Friends With Benefits' title was dropped to avoid confusion with two other upcoming projects of the same name: a feature film starring Justin Timberlake and an NBC comedy series.

Olivia Thirlby is probably best known for her performance as Ellen Page's best friend in 'Juno,' directed by Ivan Reitman's son, Jason. Her other credits include 'New York, I Love You,' 'United 93' and 'The Wackness.'

She also recurs on the HBO series 'Bored to Death,' starring Jason Schwartzman.
