Olivia Munn, Alison Pill Circle Sorkin Pilot

Olivia Munn and Alison Pill are the latest possible additions to Aaron Sorkin's upcoming HBO series, currently titled More As the Story Develops. Munn would play Sloan, "one of the new breed of sexy financial analysts" who serves as a sort of sounding board for one of the main male characters who has not been cast yet. Pill would play Maggie, a young producer on Jeff Daniels's character's news show — think Natalie to Marisa Tomei's possible Dana in Sports Night terms. Munn has played the zippy newscaster before on The Daily Show, and Pill's brilliant performance on In Treatment showed she can capture the thoughtful twentysomething who knows how to get in a damaged middle-aged guy's head. Next up, casting Sorkin's trademark male platonic chemistry! [Deadline]
