Ryan Murphy’s HBO pilot ‘Open’ adds Aisha Tyler
Aisha Tyler has landed herself into Ryan Murphy’s upcoming HBO pilot sex drama ‘Open’ making a reunion, of sorts between the actress/host and the producer.
Ryan is also the creator of Glee. He has now added Aisha on her show as a guest star who will be playing ‘Monica’ who is a happily married nurse at Grace’s (Michelle Monaghan) practice who possesses a modern outlook on matrimony.
Though Tyler is best known as a comic actress (and co-host of “The Talk”), she has done a fair amount of dramatic work too, including recurring parts on “CSI” and “24.” She has guest-starred on two of Murphy’s other shows, “Glee” and “Nip/Tuck.”
The show’s cast will also include Fringe’s Anna Torv, Last Resort’s Scott Speedman and American Beauty’s Wes Bentley.
