Opps... She wasn't in Funny People, but she is just rumored to be in another one of Seth's movies.
But the description you gave about the movie is clearly Funny People

I think you mean Rini #2, Stephanie Beard.

The description of the two movies is similar, but it's not the same movie. I haven't seen Funny People, but the description on IMDb says it's about a man with a blood disorder who has a year to live.

Here's the full description of the new, untitled Seth Rogen film (from IMDb)

Adam Schwartz (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a 25-year old lives a genuine, nice, decent, and simple life, he has a beautiful girlfriend Rachel (Bryce Dallas Howard), he works at a museum with his best friend Seth (Seth Rogen), who tends to complicate his life in humorous, but annoying ways. However, everything couldn't be any better until he comes to the realization of being diagnosed with a rare type of cancer. Considering his youth and healthy life style, Adam is at first in disbelief, but in reality knows it is real. Without having a choice, Adam decides to go through the process of chemotherapy in order to survive. He goes on to tell his parents, friends and Rachel with having their attention totally thrown off, but in total support. To get his mind off of his ordeal, Adam starts to see Katie (Anna Kendrick) a young, cute 26-year old medical student who helps him cope with the phycological process. As time goes on and his youth slowly begins to fade, Adam comes to many terms in life that never were brought to his attention before while going through the overwhelming situation of beating cancer and to appreciate what he has in life.

Stephanie will be playing a character named Susan. When more details are released, we'll be sure to report it here. It can take a while for a movie to get out of post-production, but it's listed as 2010, so it could be released later this year.
