The CW Network's New York 2013 Upfront PresentationAisha Tyler‘s career is taking a dramatic turn via a role in Ryan Murphy’s risqué HBO pilot Open, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The actress-comedienne-hostess (Archer, Whose Line Is It Anyway) will guest star in the sex-and-relationships drama as Monica, a happily married nurse at Grace’s (Michelle Monaghan) practice who possesses a modern outlook on matrimony.

Tyler’s non-comedy credits include stints on 24, Ghost Whisperer, CSI and, more recently, Hawaii Five-0. She also previously appeared in two Murphy-produced series, Glee and Nip/Tuck.

    Let me add my good wishes to her future. An absolutely beautiful, talented, sexy and funny woman. I look forward to watching this show when it is on HBO’s schedule.. Best of luck to her.

    She was the first actor to have two spy shows on TV at the same time (Archer, XIII). Plus she’s always a great interview.

  5. Chablis says:

    Hopefully this will allow her to move on from that awful Talk. She is way too talented for it.

    If this means I might get to see Anna Torv and Aisha Tyler on the same screen at the same time, I am definitely watching this!
