While Scrubs enters into an indefinite hiatus due to the strike of the Writers Guild of America, cast member Elizabeth Banks (Dr. Kim Briggs) focuses her attention in making movies.  The 33-year-old actress has just been cast to star in Kevin Smith's upcoming comedy, Zack & Miri Make a Porno.

The Scrubs actress will be playing Miri, opposite costar Seth Rogen, who portrays the role of Zack and with whom she worked with in The 40-Year-Old Virgin.  The role of Miri had initially been penned for Rosario Dawson, who starred in Smith's Clerks 2.  However, the Sin City actress was forced to pass on the project due to scheduling conflicts arising from the filming of Eagle Eye with Transformers star Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan.
Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.



Zack & Miri Make a Porno tells the tale of two lifelong friends, Zack and Miri, who decide to shoot a pornographic film together in an attempt to solve their respective cashflow problems.  But to their surprise, the duo begins to sense that their feelings for each other are more than platonic.

Smith will shoot the movie for the Weinstein Company through Dimension Films, which marks his seventh collaboration with Bob and Harvey Weinstein.  Scott Mosier will produce Zack & Miri Make a Porno, which is set to start shooting in Pittsburgh in January 2008.

Rogen, who recently starred in the comedy Knocked Up, alongside Grey's Anatomy's Katherine Heigl, is gradually carving his niche in the entertainment world as one of Hollywood's most bankable comedians.  Aside from Zack & Miri Make a Porno, which is slated to hit the theaters in 2008, he also stars in The Spiderwick Chronicles, Pineapple Express, Fanboys, Kung Fu Panda, and Horton Hears a Who!

As for the Scrubs star, she has also been cast in a series of movie projects, including Definitely, Maybe, A Tale of Two Sisters, Starship Dave, Little Big Men, and The H-Man Cometh.
