Olivia Munn is never career-homeless for long. From her rise from G4's Attack of the Show!, to her cameo in Iron Man 2, PLUS a stint on Jon Stewart's The Daily Show, the actress/model/personality hasn't really been unemployed in some time.
Uh, that is, until the cancellation of her NBC sitcom, Perfect Couples earlier this year (which the network replaced with the wildly successful two-episode run of The Paul Riser Show). Don't fret, Munn fans, she has once again found a high-profile gig, this time on HBO.
The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Olivia Munn was just cast in the upcoming and highly anticipated show that marks the return to TV for Academy Award winner (and all-around writing deity) Aaron Sorkin. The show, going by the handle of More as the Story Develops, features Jeff Daniels in the lead role as a cable news co-anchor dealing with the aftermath of a complete cast and crew exodus. THR says that Munn plays "a sexy financial analyst in the drama project." You know, a role that every serious drama needs.
Produced by heavyweights Sorkin (who will also write... obvie), Scott Rudin, and Alan Poul (who may also direct if the pilot gets the go-ahead), this is definitely a show I'll be tracking, and don't worry, I'll keep you informed more as the story develops (ugh, I know).
