  • Olivia Munn Biography

    Born: July 03, 1980 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA

    OLIVIA MUNN can currently be seen as a correspondent for the Emmy Award-winning Comedy Central show "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."

    On June 24th, she will appear in the highly anticipated HBO drama "The Newsroom," created by Oscar®-winning director Aaron Sorkin and producer Scott Rudin. It centers around a fictional news cable show and the everyday dealings with the news anchor, his new executive producer and his newsroom staff. Munn will play the financial news analyst on the show.

    She will also soon be seen in the independent film "The Baby Makers," starring opposite Paul Schneider and directed by Broken Lizard's Jay Chandrasekhar, set to premiere at the 2012 South by Southwest Film Festival. She most recently starred opposite Sarah Jessica Parker in "I Don't Know How She Does It" and in the NBC comedy "Perfect Couples."

    Munn first gained Hollywood notice as the host of G4's "Attack of the Show." The network struggled to find ratings until she joined, catapulting the once unknown G4 network into the homes of mainstream America. In 2010 her first book, Suck It, Wonder Woman!: The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek made the New York Times and Los Angeles Times best sellers list.

    Her other television appearances include an arc on the hit ABC Family show "Greek," a hilarious guest-turn on "Accidentally on Purpose," and her guest starring role as the new Buy More boss, that kicked off the fourth season of the NBC series "Chuck."

    Known for her loyalty to her fans, Munn has been unofficially anointed Geek Goddess, Queen of Comic Con and Leader of the Nerds by her fierce following. After only a few years in Los Angeles, Munn has established herself as an extremely versatile and driven talent. Raised between Oklahoma and Tokyo, she now splits her time between Los Angeles and New York.
