Olivia Munn in Iron Man 2, on Playboy cover

Tbd-oliviamunn061909b The Juice* has been looking for an excuse to write about Olivia Munn for awhile now, and finally, we have it! Actually, we have several: It seems the co-host of G4's Attack of the Show! is going to have a role in Iron Man 2, among others. This is why God invented Twitter!

The 26-year-old geek idol let slip via @OliviaMunn that she was not only going to be in the Steve Carrell and Tina Fey comedy Date Night, but she was in Iron Man 2, which was confirmed by Variety. She couldn't say what her role was, however, citing contractual obligations.

"It is definitely a bigger role than 'big stan'," she tweeted, citing her cameo in Rob Schneider's 2007 directorial debut. After some prodding, she joked: "I am playing the role of War Machine in Iron Man 2. Terrance Howard, Don Cheadle and now Olivia Munn! ha!"

It's safe to say she's joking there, but get ready for some major Olivia exposure. She's in the upcoming Broken Lizard comedy The Slammin Salmon and Freeloaders from director Dan Rosen, Variety adds, plus popping up in Entertainment Weekly and on the cover of the latest Playboy. Don't get too excited, though; she doesn't show anything. But unlike Jessica Alba's infamous 2006 row, Munn actually knew about being a cover girl.
