Trivia / Dan in Real Life

  • Dawson Casting: 22 year old Allison Pill plays 17 year old Jane. Also a slight example, 17 year old Britt Robertson plays 14 year old Cara.
  • Method Acting: The actors all spent a month together in the house where the film is set to create a more familial atmosphere.
  • Separated-at-Birth Casting: An interesting case — Alison Pill, Britt Robertson, and Marlene Lawston pass quite convincingly as sisters, though none of them look a thing like Steve Carell.
