Olivia Munn, the American actress best known for starring in the recently cancelled 'Perfect Couples', will play a "sexy financial analyst" in a forthcoming pilot for HBO, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Olivia Munn has officially joined the cast of Aaron Sorkin's drama series about the co-anchor of a cables news show.
The project, tentatively titled 'More as the Story Develops', revolves around Jeff Daniels' character 'Will' who must contend with his new team of workers after his fellow host lands a new job and takes most of their staff with him. The lead role will represent Daniels' first major television appearance. Munn will play 'Sloan', one of the "new breed" of staff who begins work at Will's network. The actress last appeared in Jon Pollack's sitcom 'Perfect Couples', but the show was replaced in its timeslot by 'The Paul Reiser Show' in April 2011 and was officially cancelled on 13th May 2011. Behind the scenes of the new Hbo show, 'Six Feet Under's' Alan Poul has joined as executive producer, while Sorkin and Scott Rudin will direct alternate episodes should the project get the green-light for a full series.
Olivia Munn recently completed work on the upcoming comedy 'I Don't Know How She Does It', based on the novel by Allison Pearson. The film also stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Greg Kinnear and PIERCE BROSNAN.
