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.
