A “half-ninja” artist, Richter was the roommate and one of the seven former paramours of Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) that Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) must fight to win her love. (We’ve posted a full-size version of the photo after the jump.)
While the characters played by Cera and Whitman will square off in a battle for Flowers’ affections in “Scott Pilgrim,” the pairing of the two actors will be a reunion of sorts, as Whitman also played the recurring girlfriend of Cera’s character on the over-too-soon television series “Arrested Development.” But, as anyone familiar with these two Whitman characters will certainly attest, Richter and “Bland Ann” (Whitman’s character in “Arrested”) couldn’t be more different — which should be pretty obvious from the most recent photo.
Previously, Wright brought us a photo of Chris Evans as Lucas Lee that was accompanied by a mystery photo (rumored to be Jason Schwartzman), and even offered some photos of the cast suited up for the much-discussed animation element of the film. Will Whitman’s on-screen brawl with Cera fall into the animation/live-action pool in “Scott Pilgrim”? We’ll find out later this year, it seems.
What do you think of Whitman as Roxy Richter? Let us know in the comment section!
