First Look: Olivia Munn snuggles Nick on ‘New Girl’ | EW
Says Sorkin of his featured player, “In a lot of ways, [Olivia] reminded me of a female version of Rob Lowe on The West Wing—she plays a wonk who doesn’t know or doesn’t care that she’s good-looking. I’d seen her on The Daily Show, so I knew she was a world-class comedian, but it wasn’t until her audition that I saw she was also a world-class actress.”
Well that’s certainly a glowing recommendation. Haters be damned.
Actress and Daily Show correspondent Olivia Munn has landed the female lead in Broken Lizard’s new indie comedy The Baby Maker. Paul Schneider (Lars and the Real Girl) is set to star, with Broken Lizard’s Jay Chandrasekhar poised to direct. The film centers on a young married couple having trouble conceiving a child. The husband decides to rob a Pasedena sperm bank alongside his friends, in order to retrieve the specimen he donated as a young man. Variety reports that Munn will play the leading female role in the flick, which is presumably Schnieder’s wife. All of the Broken Lizard members are expected to co-star, with Kevin Heffernan playing the playing Schnieder’s crazy best friend, and Chandrasekhar taking on the role of a master Estonian theif.

Got to meet and briefly hang with Olivia Munn today. Sat in on her interviews with AOL TV and Cambio and was having a tough time holding in laughs—she’s genuinely funny, even when she gets steered away from the comic responses she’s prepared. She’s also
A TOTAL BABEgot a new show, ‘Perfect Couples,’ premiering on NBC tonight in that block with ‘The Office’ and ‘30 Rock’ and all the good comedies. Interested to check it out.
Great photo work by Ben as always. Dude has such an impressive signature style in a position where he could get by being a total hack.

Very jealous. Also, Perfect Couples is good, so that’s a plus.
“Just finished [taping] @late_show and Dave Letterman is so amazing and I just… I just…. I mean… Yay." -Olivia Munn on Twitter.
Sorry for the gratuitous OliviaMunnage. (And by sorry I mean not at all sorry).
After nearly 6 months of speculation, the Olivia Munn era is officially over at G4, as all traces of the lame-duck hostess were quietly removed from the network yesterday. The reign of Candace Bailey begins 01-11-2011.
Bailey was an actress on Jericho and cohost of Nickelodeon’s U-Pick Live.
While Munn will surely be missed, there are and will be plenty of opportunities to watch her do her thing (Daily Show, NBC’s Perfect Couples). And even though if feels like AOTS’ golden age is passing, a new permanent host was surely needed.
