Michelle Monaghan To Star In Ryan Murphy’s HBO Pilot ‘Open’

Michelle Monaghan rounds out the lead cast of Open, HBO’s drama pilot from Ryan Murphy. The Fox 21 project, which Murphy co-wrote with Lauren Gussis, is described as a modern, provocative exploration of human sexuality and relationships. Monaghan will play the central female character Grace, a successful and recently engaged gynecologist. She joins Scott Speedman, who plays Grace’s fiance Jonathan, Wes Bentley (Evan), Anna Torv (Windsor) and Jennifer Jason Leigh (Holly). Open keeps Monaghan — repped by ICM Partners, Circle of Confusion, and attorney Robert Offer — in the HBO fold. She plays the female lead opposite Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in the pay cable network’s eight-episode limited series True Detective, which premieres in January 2014. Her upcoming features include Fort Bliss, A Many Splintered Thing and Better Living Through Chemistry.
