Video: The Newsroom's Olivia Munn Makes Her First New Girl Appearance Tonight
2012 has been a big year for Olivia Munn. Not only does she have a starring role in HBO's new drama The Newsroom, but she also appeared in Magic Mike and The Babymakers, and next up, she's set to guest star on New Girl for numerous episodes, which includes tonight's "Bathtub." Fox released a behind-the-scenes video that gives us an early look at Munn in her role as Angie.
It looks like Nick might have met his surly, afternoon-drinking match in Munn's Angie. The video below shows Nick and Angie hitting it off, and features Jake Johnson and Munn talking about her spot on the show.
Amidst glimpses of Nick and Angie getting along (and getting drunk in the middle of the day), Johnson jokes about Munn bringing a bit of Newsroom professionalism to the show. And Munn talks about the challenges of working on a comedy. The Newsroom does have some humor worked into the Sorkinesque dialogue, but for the most part, the series is a drama. So it'll be interesting to see how Munn pulls off her appearance on a comedy like New Girl. Jake Johnson may not get his wish that Munn will appear in 70-more episodes, but she is set to appear in multiple eps, the first of which airs tonight (Tuesday, 12/4) at 9:00 p.m. ET on Fox.
