From G4's Attack of the Show to Iron Man 2, Olivia Munn isn't climbing the Hollywood ladder, she's flying from rung to rung.

Robert Downey Jr. stopped by "The Jimmy Kimmel Show" to unveil the trailer to his upcoming blockbuster. Check it out.

"Date Night" Goes Pear-Shaped on Tina Fey and Steve Carell

The stars of "30 Rock" and "The Office" have assembled a great cast -- Mark Wahlberg, Common, James Franco, Mila Kunis, Kristen Wiig, Mark Ruffalo, Ray Liotta and Leighton Meeste -- for their comedy about a couple caught in a case of mistaken identity.

Does anyone else find it odd that Olivia Munn has exploded in the last six months? We never really dug her on "Attack of the Show," or even took the time to learn her name, but a few well publicized dates with Chris Pine and suddenly that girl is everywhere, from the cover of Complex Magazine to parts in two of the films we're most excited to see this summer.

Coincidence? Or diabolical PR stunt?

Remember the episode of "30 Rock" early this year where James Franco, playing himself, fake-dates Jenna (Jane Krakowski), contracting her for five dates a week, one fight a month and a product placement deal with Jamba Juice, to distract from his real relationship with an anime body pillow?

Now that we've discovered Munn shares the same PR rep as Beau Garrett, Pine's only other well publicized girlfriend, we're starting to wonder whasagoin' on?

Does the "Star Trek" star have some sort of product placement deal with LA Mill Coffee? Did Munn hitch her star to his for base commission and a Christmas bonus? Is someone hiding their love for a life-sized pillow named Izumi?  Inquiring minds want to know.

We're very excited for both "Date Night" and "Iron Man 2," both of which Munn has roles in.  While her part in the Tina Fey-Steve Carell starrer is more of a small cameo, "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau gave Munn the role of Iron Maiden without an audition and Robert Downey Jr. was reportedly very impressed with her work.

Check out Olivia Munn in "Date Night," opening April 9, and "Iron Man 2," May 7, to see if she lives up to the hype.
