Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen on TRL

Rachel Jumped Right on Someone Else's Role

Hayden Christensen, Rachel Bilson, and Samuel L. Jackson made the requisite stop by TRL to promote Jumper yesterday. Fun fact: Rachel and Hayden weren't the original stars of the movie — director Doug Liman had two lesser-known actors all ready to go, but decided to change it up and make his characters a bit older at the last second. What's more random is that Rachel had a coincidental meeting with Teresa Palmer, the actress slated to play her part, just weeks before the switch. Rachel said,


"It was a couple of weeks before I got the call from Doug. I really liked her. It was really weird to meet the person and talk to her about it. She was having a really good time [on the film]. It was just sort of funny."

It must have been hard to lose the part, but apparently a role isn't the only thing Rachel and Teresa have in common. Rumor has it Palmer is dating her newest co-star in Justice League of America, Adam Brody. Good thing Rachel's got a new cute boy of her own.
