Star of the Broadway hit Spring Awakening, John Gallagher Jr., leaped to television in a major way accepting a role in the upcoming cable news drama More as This Story Develops at HBO from Aaron Sorkin.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gallagher enjoyed a career boost when Sorkin hired him to play a handsome staffer at a cable news show who develops a crush on the associate producer played by Alison Pill.
Recently, Olivia Munn signed on to play a character named Sloan, one of the sexy (duh!) financial analysts who work at a cable news show with Jeff Daniels' character as the co-anchor.
Scott Rudin joined Sorkin to produce the show and Alan Poul (Six Feet Under) came aboard to direct.
Josh Pence and Thomas Sadoski also recently joined the cast.
Fans, how excited are you about Sorkin's More as This Story Develops. Looks like Sorkin has all the pieces in place for an excellent TV drama.
