George Lang: Having a beer with Olivia Munn

nn is in the first year of her gig as “senior Asian correspondent” for Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” the first month of her starring role on NBC’s “Perfect Couples,” and the early transformation from bit parts to key roles in movies. This is the cultivation stage of a career leap, which means Munn is constantly moving — like Jay-Z, she’s on to the next one. Certainly bad weather played a complicating role in setting up our interview, but one of the key challenges in nailing down 30 minutes of phone time was determining which airport’s security checkpoint Munn was hitting at any given moment.

So, Munn might not be available for that beer that you want to have with her. Once things like “The Late Show with David Letterman” are on someone’s day planner and it has nothing to do with setting the TiVo, a pub crawl on Western Avenue is probably not in the cards.

But Olivia Munn seems like she could have a beer with you, if the stars aligned, schedules permitted and your dreams did what you told them to do. And as long as she doesn’t have the launch codes, it’s a cool dream.
