Elizabeth Banks @ “Zack & Miri Make A Porno” Premiere

Playing First Ladies and Losers is Earning Kudos for Elizabeth Banks

“Zack and Miri” is a complete departure, with Banks playing a working class woman whose 10th high school reunion _ and the fact that she and her roomie (Seth Rogen) can’t make the rent _ causes her to realize she’s made a lot of bad choices. Her next bad choice? Making a porn film, with her roommate and best friend, to raise cash.

“There’s a lot of Miri in me,” Banks says. “She might be my favorite character that I’ve ever played. She’s a lovable loser, just a little lost in life. She’s so lost that she doesn’t realize she’s in love with her best friend. That’s lost. I responded not to the title, which is catchy, yes, but to the romance.” Source
