Christina Hendricks & Olivia Munn 'Don't Know How She Does It'

Hendricks / Munn

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?

    How you gunna try pulling off a flick like this with two amazingly hot women and then have it starring Dogface SJP? Nothing like having your supporting cast far outshine your Lead.
  • Tony
    Oh, I'm in... Christina Hendricks, yes please, anytime... :)
  • Jay
    Olivia Munn annoys the hell out of me.
  • smiert spionam
    I was just gonna say something similar, but then saw Jay's post and couldn't come up with anything up on par that would summarize my feelings towards Munn.
  • RPD
    It's good to know there are others out there who don't like Munn. Hendricks on the other hand...
  • Cracky
    I wonder if Hendricks has back problems... Also: I agree. SJP and Munn are big-time annoyances.
  • beavis
    PASS!!!!!!! munn is loser who isn't competant to do anything (she ruined AotS) and i only liked SJP in "family stone". also, grammer and hendricks (outside of tv) are as interesting as stale bread. other than brosnan, this cast is so horriffically awful - it HAS to be a joke - then, throw this dreadful cast into another cookie-cutter rom com and we have the perfect storm of atrocious movies. i'll avoid this movie like plutoniom dipped in HIV.

  • Jimmy Love

  • beavis
    #10 - i'll tell you how: sarah lane left and they brought in munn and changed much of the format of the show........THAT is how it was ruined. i agree that it would be awesome to see tech tv again - but, there are some good internet shows just like TT. sarah lane, leo laporte, and tom sullivan are VERY good on those.

    @Xerxex: are we having another go at internet humor? 😛 I'm sorry, I JUST HAD to do this. I apologize in advance: http://img340.imageshack.us/i/321bh.jpg/

    Nice one Ricardo, but no I'm not having a go...I learned my lesson the last time.
  • Haz
    I'm not going to lie. I didn't read the article. I've been looking at Hendricks the whole time. I can't believe that the Schnozberry kid from Super Troopers is hittin' that.
  • beavis
