amanda peet sorkinAmanda Peet will play Matthew Perry's nemesis on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, a new series that Aaron Sorkin is creating for NBC. Peet and Perry co-starred in The Whole Nine Yards and its awful sequel, The Whole Ten Yards. Studio 60 is set behind the scenes of a sketch comedy show, and Perry plays the genius head writer who butts heads with the newly appointed president of the network. Peet plays the new president.

Also signed up for the show are Steven Weber and D.L. Hughley. Nate Corddry is also listed as a cast member, he'll play one of the actors. He's currently working as a reporter for The Daily Show and is fellow reporter Rob Corddry's younger brother. This is looking to be a damn fine cast.

Amanda is pretty hot. But why do I always get her mixed up with Hilary Swank?

This is such brilliant news, the amount of rubbish I've watched just because Amanda Peet has been in it and now she's in something from one of the best writers ever. Excellent.

This is the best news since.... Well, Matt Perry signing on. Peet is an underated talent, who I thought was wonderful on Jack and Jill.

I can't wait for this show to debut!

Just waiting for the announcement that Josh Molina is signing on :)

I have faith in Sorkin, but Amanda Peet as a network president? That's crazy talk. Maybe a producer/show-runner type.

BTW, is it weird that the Tina Fey thing appears to be going forward too? I don't see NBC picking up both of these shows to series, and Sorkin probably has a guaranteed minimum run.

Oh man, Amanda Peet is so hot in a unique kind of way. This show sounds like it could actually be pretty good, especially if it's well written.
