Michelle Monaghan has been cast as the final female lead in Ryan Murphy's HBO pilot "Open," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Monaghan will play Grace, a gynecologist whose marriage and sexuality comes into question after a lesbian encounter with yoga instructor Windsor (Anna Torv). Scott Speedman will play Grace's husband, Jonathan, a sports marketing executive, while Jennifer Jason Leigh will play Windsor's long-term partner Holly, an actress intensely committed to her career. Wes Bentley also stars as Evan, "a handsome blowhard who loves espousing his theories on human sexuality."
The "Open" pilot is due to begin filming in early 2014, from a script written by Murphy and Lauren Gussis. Monaghan, whose big screen work has included "Source Code," "Mission Impossible III" and "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang," is appearing in another HBO project, "True Detective," where she'll play the female lead opposite Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in the eight-episode limited series.
