Newsom has a few ties to acting already, having previously appeared on Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein's Portlandia and starred in MGMT's video for "Kids." She's also engaged to actor and former Saturday Night Live cast member Andy Samberg.

Inherent Vice, which tells the story of a bungling L.A. detective investigating his ex-girlfriend's kidnapping, is also expected to star Benicio Del Toro, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin, Martin Short and Jena Malone.
