A slightly more accurate take on the Lucy Davis situation....according to the Independent, it looks as if she was asked to read for the part of Rose (which, even in my outsider's understanding of Hollywood, is different from being offered the part, and then turning it down).

But take heart! Ms. Davis did nab a part in something called Shaun of the Dead, described by the Independent as "a romantic comedy with zombies."

I bet the line's forming for that one already.
