News on the new Sorkin that's suitable for this site

The cast of Aaron Sorkin’s More As This Story Develops for HBO is slowly developing as Deadline brings word that there are a few maybe’s almost added to the one definite member of the new pilot.

The new show revolves around cable news anchor Will McCallister (Jeff Daniels) and the show’s executive producer, MacKenzie. Marisa Tomei is reportedly close to sealing the deal for the role of MacKenzie, although Emily Mortimer is also considered a top contender for the role.

I think I'd rather see Mortimer--Tomei is sexy but hasn't impressed me as much else, Oscar notwithstanding.

Mortimer is pretty and I saw her in Love's Labour's Lost.

Tony nominee Alison Pill is in negotiations to play Maggie, an associate producer on the assignment desk, and Olivia Munn is in talks for the role of a sexy financial analyst that works on the same cable network as McCallister.

Alison Pill is largely unknown to me. According to her Wikipedia page, she was the girl drummer in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, which I wasn't crazy about but it wasn't her fault. And I admit it: The Munn thing surprises me.

She's attractive and seems like a perfectly nice person, but I haven't seen her show much of the kind of talent I expect of an actress on a Sorkin series. Perhaps I'll be pleasantly surprised.

So sue me. I'm feeling depressed today.

Tho for once it's about the state of my government rather than the state of myself, for the most part. And I feel like looking at a picture of a hot girl from a cool television show.

Do you have a problem with that?

Courtney Love thinks I'm an advanced and evolved heterosexual man

And so I am.

Ms. Love on the subject of her fan base:

"A lot of females and a lot of gay guys and a few advanced and evolved heterosexual men. Not many!"
