Marisa Tomei is "in talks" to co-star with Jeff Daniels in Aaron Sorkin's upcoming HBO series, currently titled More As the Story Develops. She'd play a news producer (and love interest for Daniels) described in the script as "ageless and beautiful ... funny, silly, even sheepish, right up until the moment she wallops you in the kneecaps." Tomei was a guest star on a few episodes of Rescue Me in 2006, but hasn't had a regular TV role since A Different World. [Page Six/NYP]
