Alba picks up the Bill
13:30 08 June 2006
Jessica Alba has replaced Lindsay Lohan in new comedy film 'Bill'.
Lohan recently left the project due to scheduling conflicts with another project and now bosses have brought the 'Sin City' actress in to fill her shoes, according to America's Variety magazine.
Alba joins current cast 'Thank You For Smoking' star Aaron Eckhart, 'Spider-Man 2' actress Elizabeth Banks and 'Gone In Sixty Seconds' actor Timothy Olyphant.
The movie follows the story of a man down on his luck and tired of his job. He hits rock bottom after finding his wife in bed with a local news anchorman but finds new hope after reluctantly mentoring an unruly teen.
Last week, Alba revealed she is desperate to sunbathe topless this summer.
The actress - who is also due to start filming 'Fantastic Four 2' in August - wants to sun her breasts while holidaying on European beaches, but is paranoid about paparazzi.
She said: "I would do if it were just me and my guy, but the paparazzi seem to pop up everywhere.
"I think I'll be wearing a bikini. Bikinis are more flattering on my body."
