Rashida Jones Graphic Novel 'Frenemy of the State' Gets Film Adaptation

Rashida Jones' comic book about an heiress turned spy is set for a big screen adaptation. Variety reported that "Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment have acquired screen rights." Jones and her writing partner (Will McCormack) will pen the screenplay. Yay!
"Frenemy of the State" wasn't conceived by Jones as an acting vehicle for herself, she said. "It's intended for a girl much younger than me, about age 20, an interesting age for girls as they make that scary jump to adulthood. She has lived a life of privilege, attended the best schools and learned every language, but her obsession with spying on exes gets her into trouble and she is recruited to be a spy in exchange for not going to prison. There is a comic element to it, this girl who is so conscious of social standing and wearing the right shoes, suddenly becoming responsible for these dangerous, life-threatening missions."
Who should play the lead role in Frenemy of the State

My vote is for Alia Shawkat (Whip It, Amreeka). As you can see from the picture above she already looks the girl on the cover and she's around the age that Jones mentioned. Plus, she's funny. If you saw her in Whip It then you know she has the right amount of comedic timing to be a cool spy.

Other possible candidates include... Alexa Vega (Ruby & the Rockits, Spy Kids) and Jessica Parker Kennedy (Soul, Smallville).

So who would you choose?
