Amber Heard had a supporting role as Angie, a beautiful, yet reckless, teenager who was the girlfriend of the main character. She was praised for her acting as this resembled the embodiment of a teenage high school girl, however, another actress almost got the part. The role of Angie was supposed to go to Olivia Thirlby, the actress who played Leah in the coming-of-age film Juno released a year prior. The re-cast was sudden and last-minute, as Thirlby appeared to be the best fit for the teenager, as shown in her performance in Juno but neither party held grudges for the recasting. Pineapple Express was Heard’s ticket to mainstream recognition.

While another CIA agent, Renner, was tasked with capturing arms dealers in a terrorist group in Serbia, Vivi (Heard’s character) was working in the background.

Vivi asked for Renner’s help and in return, she would give him a drug that would lengthen his life, as he was battling terminal cancer. Renner agreed, but when the moment came that he could finally kill the leader of the dealer group. He chose not follow through as he regretted being in the CIA as it caused division in his family.
