Ever since the film industry happened upon a previously undiscovered Olsen reserve hidden within the Sundance film Martha Marcy May Marlene, they've been looking for some way to use this new, reportedly-decent thespian--"Elizabeth"--in some movies. It looks like How I Met Your Mother star Josh Radnor will be one of the first to do it, signing the actress for Liberal Arts, his follow up to HappyThankYouMorePlease. Olsen--who's already shooting Red Lights with Sigourney Weaver and De Niro--will be playing a 19-year-old college student in a relationship with Radnor, our lead, "a 35 year-old still yearning for the life of a college student, who must come to terms with his age and responsibilities."

"I swear, I let up for one minute on being the mediocre sitcom actor-turned-whiny film voice of a listless generation, and this dude is suddenly getting all my mail," thinks Zack Braff.
