On Wednesday, TVLine announced that Aisha Tyler, a San Francisco native, has been cast in Ryan Murphy's new HBO pilot, "Open." Tyler grew up in San Francisco, graduating from the School of the Arts program at McAteer High School. She currently voices Lana on FX's "Archer," co-hosts CBS's "The Talk," and acts as hostess for the "Whose Line is it Anyway?" reboot. Past recognizable roles include Andrea on "Ghost Whisperer," Mia on "CSI," and Charlie on "Friends." She has also worked on Murphy-produced series in the past, such as "Glee" and "Nip/Tuck."

Tyler will guest-star as Monica, a happily married nurse with a modern perspective on matrimony. Other actors committed to the project, which explores human sexuality and relationships, include Michelle Monaghan, Scott Speedman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Cheyenne Jackson.

Tyler has not yet commented on this fact via Twitter (@aishatyler), beyond retweeting Michael Ausiello's exclusive story breaking the news.
