"She was actually a huge fan of the project and screen-tested for it years ago."

It's certainly nice to see Justin and Jessica back together in REAL LIFE…but we think they made the right casting choice with this one.

What do U think? Would Jessica Biel have been a good choice for Mila's FWB role?
