Christina Hendricks & Olivia Munn 'Don't Know How She Does It'
In case you weren't aware (especially since we didn't post this news whenever it was announced), an adaptation of Allison Pearson's hit British book I Don't Know How She Does It is on the way with Sarah Jessica Parker starring. Now it looks like the supporting cast has been rounded out with some real eye candy and a couple great male talents as well. 24 Frames reports Christina Hendricks ("Mad Men") and Olivia Munn ("Attack of the Show") have landed major roles in the romantic comedy about a high-powered finance type (Parker) who's also the mother of two young children and trying to balance the many competing elements in her life.
Hendricks is playing a friend of Parker's character while Munn will play one of her work colleagues. Along with these lovely ladies, "Saturday Night Live" head writer and Weekend Update host Seth Meyers has also landed an unknown role along with Pierce Brosnan and Kelsey Grammer. A romantic comedy starring Sarah Jessica Parker is already going to have an uphill battle with the male audience thanks to the Sex and the City series, but Hendricks and Munn are some of the best bait you can find to rake some men into theaters.
In addition, director Doug McGrath (who directed the unjustly ignored alternate Truman Capote film Infamous starring Toby Jones), so this has the potential to venture outside of the drudge that is Sex and the City. Let's not forget that some romantic comedies do turn out all right (Love Actually, When Harry Met Sally), so maybe this could be one of them. Count me as cautiously optimistic for the time being, but I'm definitely looking forward to seeing Hendricks and Munn on the big screen in any capacity. How about you?
