]]>Malin Akerman, who has already established her knack for comedy in movies like “The Heartbreak Kid,” “27 Dresses” and “Couples Retreat,” has signed on to take over the role from Lindsay Lohan, according to online reports. Wilder had been sticking by Lohan for months despite her rotating door at rehab that was only equaled by the one she had going at the courthouse.
