Anna Torv Cast as Lesbian Lover in Ryan Murphy's Open Marriage Drama

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | July 31, 2013 | Comments ()


It’s not a particularly compelling news item, but I thought the headline needed to be put out into the world, because a headline like that can really brighten a person’s outlook on life.

Anna Torv Cast as Lesbian Lover in Ryan Murphy’s Open Marriage Drama

It’s also on HBO, which is not necessarily a guarantee that Anna Torv Cast as Lesbian Lover in Ryan Murphy’s Open Marriage Drama is going to provide you with the bunk goods you need, but it’s a fairly solid bet.

Torv is set to play a woman who is a long-term relationship with a character played by Jennifer Jason Leigh (Single White Female), but another woman apparently catches her eye. And by that, I mean: Ryan Murphy is probably going to have them do weird things with food products and things that can only be purchased in high-end hardware stores.

Wes Bentley and Scott Speedman also have roles in Open, a “modern, provocative exploration of human sexuality and relationships.”

Here’s a GIF that will help bring that headline to life.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    If the sort of thing intrigued you, would you rather be: gay on the weekends (reference yesterday's Parks and Rec mind blowers), or have an open marriage (hot lesbian side piece not guaranteed)?

  • lowercase_ryan

    What constitutes a high-end hardware store? Lowes? Ace? No can't be Ace. And certainly not Home Depot. Those aprons are the worst.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Restoration Hardware.

  • lowercase_ryan

    OOOOH I get it. I mean I don't get the reference, but I get what was meant by hardware.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I was trying to come up with something clever like "not just a company name, it's also a mission statement" since I know several fabulous gay men who have worked there, but it just felt belabored.

    But I mean, c'mon. antique iron calipers?

  • lowercase_ryan

    That's just gross. Like really, really gross.

  • toblerone

    Two questions:

    1. Will she actually get to use her native Aussie accent?

    2. Can they work in a twin so we get Faux Olivia too?

    I was worried we wouldn't get to see Anna anymore so this is FRAKKING FANTASTIC NEWS!

  • John W

    Thanks for the heads up.

  • Joe Grunenwald

    Apropos of nothing (well, sort of nothing), I've made a list of five Annas. Sort of a Five Freebies list, but also not really. Just five Annas that I enjoy for various reasons.

    1. Anna Torv
    2. Anna Friel
    3. Anna Kendrick
    4. Anna Camp
    5. Anna Chlumsky

    Did I leave out any worthwhile Annas?

  • toblerone


  • NynjaSquirrel

    I know Anna Silk has everything she needs to be sexy, but she does absolutely nothing for me at all. Her little sidekick though...

  • Maguita NYC

    She always surprises me. This girl has a punch of charisma no matter her frail appearance; Ksenia Solo brightens up the room every time she walks in and starts talking.

  • toblerone

    It's her (Ksenia) eyes, she has amazing expressive eyes.It's the same reason I love Kacey Rohls.

    Also the fact that both are gorgeous pale brunettes (my other kryptonite after redheads) doesn't hurt either.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Her eyes are indeed amazing, but everything about her character (and perhaps Ksenia herself) is just fun. Maguita has it right.

  • Maguita NYC

    Maguita has it always right... Except when the Blonde is strong.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Anna Faris.



  • NynjaSquirrel

    Depends on what you're wanting them for...?
    Anna Kournikova
    Anna Paquin
    Anna Chapman (sexy spy)
    Anna Louise Plowman
    Anna Nicole Smith (Ok, we can argue this one)
    Anna Popplewell (the one from Narnia that got remarkably pretty)

  • Chancellor, and for other reasons, Gunn, and Deavere Smith.

  • Joe Grunenwald

    Anna Deavere Smith is an excellent addition. I don't think I'm familiar with the others.

  • Anna Chancellor: Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, Four Weddings & a Funeral, and many, many other British shows/films

    Anna Gunn: Skyler White!

  • Joe Grunenwald

    Shameful confession: I don't watch BREAKING BAD, so I had no idea who Skyler White was until I read Cindy's SRL.

    But it's in my queue! I'll get to it! Don't hit me!

  • Anne At Large

    Anna Chancellor will always be Miss Bingley to me. Which was disorienting in the Hitchiker's Guide movie.

  • Emperor Cupcake

    To me, she's always Duckface, which was disorienting while watching Pride and Prejudice.
