Olivia Munn

Olivia Munn plays Leigh, one half of the couple that strives to be perfect on Perfect Couples.

Munn has all the makings of a star on the rise: allure, humor, depth, beauty, and, of course, serious talent. She can currently be seen as the newest correspondent on Comedy Central's Emmy-winning The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Munn first made Hollywood take notice when she became the host of Attack of the Show. Her other TV appearances include an arc on the hit show Greek; a hilarious guest turn on Accidentally on Purpose; and her guest-starring role as the new Buy More boss kicked off the fourth season of the NBC series Chuck. She recently landed a role in the new Miramax film I Don't Know How She Does It playing a colleague of Sarah Jessica Parker's. Shooting begins mid-January in NY.

Some recent press coverage includes being named by Rolling Stone as one of the Best Characters on TV, and by GQ as one of the 113 Funniest in America; landing the January 2010 Maxim cover, the December 2010 Men's Health cover, the 2010 Business Week popularity cover; and being included in Entertainment Weekly's annual Must List issue (twice in a row). Major newspapers like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, USA Today and the Wall Street Journal, just to name a few, have all declared their support for her talents.

Munn also has an extremely popular website, OliviaMunn.com, where she posts original videos, superhero sketches, fan contests and her general musings on the world around her. Her book, "Suck It, Wonder Woman!: The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek," was named to the New York Times and Los Angeles Times Best-Seller Lists.

Raised between Oklahoma and Tokyo, Japan, Munn now splits her time between Los Angeles and New York.
