The film's director David Fincher did an interview with HitFix and talked a bit about Rashida and her role in the movie:
Some actors want to be noticed and some actors are perfectly happy to be part of something bigger. When you’re talking about putting an ensemble together and as much as you love Rashida Jones and this and that, the question is, "Are you going to be okay being an extra for fucking 12 days of shooting? I mean you are literally going to be handed a piece of paper and you’re going to tuck them into things and you’re going to write things on a fucking Post-It note. That’s what you’re doing. Are you okay with that?' You know? Because you want that person. You want that face. You want that voice when she finally speaks, you want somebody who’s a fucking Harvard graduate, who’s like… this is somebody. She’s a formidable actor.
