Last week, I started preparing everyone for the season two premiere of The Killing, which premieres this Sunday. Based on an interview with the head writer for the show, and based on several in-the-know TV critics, I really don’t think I’ll be paying attention to this season’s plot lines. They probably aren’t going to reveal Rosie Larsen’s killer until THE END of the second season. And the head writer thinks she’s an absolute and total genius for doing it that way too, and it’s like she doesn’t hear any of the criticisms.
So, compare my lack of enthusiasm for The Killing with my excitement for the new season of Mad Men. I couldn’t wait for new photos of any and all cast members of Mad Men. But when I saw these pics – of the premiere screening for The Killing – I was just filled with sadness. Mireille Enos is so pretty and so talented, and this could have been Joel Kinnaman’s big moment, where Hollywood sees a talented dude and makes him into a star. And… nothing. I worry that Enos and Kinnaman’s careers will suffer because of the crappy, unfulfilling writing on the show. Their characters look incompetent, and their performances are all over the place because of the crappy writing.
Still: Joel Kinnaman. Would you hit it? Or would you be too sad to hit it because you dislike the show? He gives off such a lovable-dirtbag vibe. I would have been into him like crazy in my early 20s. As it is now, I just can’t. It’s the show, but it’s also this horrible news: Joel Kinnaman is dating Olivia Munn. At least according to Olivia Munn’s publicist, who made sure to leak the information last night:
Sorry guys, Olivia Munn is taken. E! News confirms that the actress and former G4 host is linked to The Killing’s Joel Kinnaman, who took Liv as his arm candy to the show’s second season premiere tonight in Los Angeles.
Here’s what our source told us of the new duo…
“They have been together for about three months. They met last year, but they didn’t get together until just before Christmas,” the friend of the couple told us. “He is a super normal guy and she is a really down-to-earth girl and they just get each other. They are on the same wavelength intellectually, and they have the same sense of humor. It’s been going on for a little while and it’s heading towards being serious. They are extremely happy together.”
Our source also shared that the twosome are making no secret of their new relationship and sat next to each other inside the theater.

For what it’s worth, I didn’t see any photos of Munn at last night’s Killing event, so maybe they didn’t really walk arm-and-arm or anything. But sure, I’ll buy that they’re together. Olivia hooks up with (“dates”) whichever famous dude will get her attention or help her career. And I think less of Joel for engaging in her crap.
