Alison Pill, Olivia Munn join Sorkin's HBO drama

The cast for Aaron Sorkin's HBO pilot is filling out, with both Olivia Munn and Alison Pill signing on, according to Deadline.

Tentatively titled "More As This Story Develops," Sorkin's drama follows Will McCallister (Jeff Daniels), a cable news anchor with his own show, as well as the female executive producer, MacKenzie, and the news program's staff.

Pill ("In Treatment," "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) will portray associate producer Maggie, while Olivia Munn (whose NBC show "Perfect Couples" recently got the ax) will play a "sexy financial analyst" who appears on the same network as Sorkin's fictional news program.

Jeff Daniels has already been added to the cast as anchor McCallister, and Emily Mortimer ("Shutter Island") is still in negotiations to snag the executive producer role.

    Alison Pill is a very attractive young woman, and one hell of a great actress.

    Allison Pill is what is commonly referred to as "a butter-face".

      What about me tampon-socket? I'm not trying to be an actor. Go back to blogging about prop 8 with your boyfriend.

      Mormon: OMG how did John know that my hideous disfigurement ended my acting career? If only the leprosy hadn't rotted my face away I'd be living my thespian dream instead of going door to door forcing my "religion" on bored housewives.

      The Mad R@p3r: I agree with mormon, girl on the left is fugtacular in that pic...but she's still better looking than any woman who'd give me a second glance. And if she'd have me, I'd fall to my knees weeping with joy. I'm so lonely. So very lonely.
