Talk about the perks of a well-designed contract. After announcing her pregnancy, Hilary Duff was dropped from her once forthcoming flick, "Bonnie and Clyde" -- but not without a pretty penny to send her packing.

According to TMZ, Duff had a play-or-pay contract so that if, for any reason, she was let go from the film, she would still be payed $100,000. Not a bad payout for a gig that you never even started.

Duff's disassociation from the project comes on the heels of the exciting announcement that she'll now be eating for two. Duff and her husband of one year, Mike Comrie, took to the Disney born and bred actress' website to share the big news -- "We also want to share the exciting news that.. BABY MAKES THREE!!!" she wrote before continuing that the couple is "extremely happy and ready to start this new chapter of our lives."

Since the announcement, there hasn't been a photog in L.A. who isn't on Duff bump duty, hoping to snag the first shots of "Lizzie McGuire" all grown up and pregnant.

But now that Duff's out of the "Bonnie and Clyde" picture, who will step in to fill her shoes? We've got a few suggestions:
