2010 - 2011Biography:
Olivia Munn is an actress, host, author and self-proclaimed "avid hoverboard dreamer."
Olivia first made Hollywood take notice when she became the host of the G4 program, "Attack of the Show."
Audiences quickly picked up on Olivia's quick wit, impeccable timing and self-effacing approach to comedy. The G4 network
struggled to find ratings until Olivia joined, catapulting the once unknown network into the homes of mainstream America. Then it seemed everyone was taking notice: Entertainment Weekly
put Olivia on their "2009 Must List"
, The New York Times
has shown the support of her sardonic personality, Rolling Stone
listed her as one of the four reasons they loved G4
, she's graced the cover of numerous magazines and is regularly seen on all of the major blogs. In June 2010, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart handpicked Olivia to become their newest correspondent, making her one of only five female correspondents ever to be regulars on the show. In fall 2010, Olivia will make her first network series debut on the NBC sitcom, "Perfect Couples,"
created by the hit-makers behind "Friends"
and "30 Rock."
Executive Producer John Pollack recently divulged in an interview that Munn's name was given to him and Scott Silveri by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. With recommendations from comedy royalty like that, it was easy for the creators to write the role of "Leigh" with Olivia in mind. Known also for her candor and loyalty to the fans, Olivia established a following so fierce she's been anointed "Geek Goddess," "Queen of Comic-Con," and "Leader of the Nerds." In 2011 she was voted one of "The 10 Sexiest Funny Women on the Planet"
. Raised between Oklahoma and Tokyo, Japan, Olivia now resides in Los Angeles.
