Sanaa Lathan rounds out the cast of HBO’s comedy pilot Tilda, from Bill Condon. The project stars Diane Keaton as Tilda, a powerful female online Hollywood journalist with a no-holds-barred style. Lathan will play Sasha Litt, a mysterious new head of operations that RMG head Andrew Brown (Jason Patric) brings in to work at the studio.
The cast of the pilot, which Condon wrote with Cynthia Mort, also co-stars Ellen Page, Wes Bentley, David Harbour and Leland Orser. Filming will begin shortly in Los Angeles. Lathan, who just came off the West End revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof where she played Maggie, voices a character on The Cleveland Show. She is repped by WME and manger John Carrabino.
