- “Dark Phoenix” actor Olivia Munn, 38, has been romantically linked to 28-year-old Tucker Roberts.
- Roberts is the president of Philadelphia Fusion, an esports team competing in the Overwatch League and the son of Comcast CEO Brian Roberts.
- While the relationship between Munn and Roberts has not yet been defined, the two share a common background in video games.
Rumors are swirling around actress Olivia Munn’s budding relationship with the head of a competitive video gaming team.
Munn was recently photographed in Los Angeles alongside Tucker Roberts, son of Comcast CEO Brian Roberts and president of the Overwatch League’s Philadelphia Fusion. According to Entertainment Tonight, the two enjoyed a date on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills over the weekend, holding hands and looking affectionate as they shopped.
Munn hadn’t been publicly linked to anyone since ending a three-year relationship with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers in early 2017.
Roberts, 28, was named president of the Philadelphia Fusion in January 2018 for the team’s inaugural season. The team competes at the highest levels of Blizzard’s acclaimed and best-selling competitive first-person shooter, “Overwatch.” Fusion managed to reach the Overwatch League Grand Finals and took home $400,000 as the runner-up in July.
The team is officially owned by Robert’s family’s company, Comcast Spectacor; the same company also owns the Philadelphia Flyers and 76ers, along with Wells Fargo Center where they play.
Prior to taking over the day-to-day management of the Philadelphia Fusion, Roberts worked as a strategic advisor and entrepreneur in residence for other Comcast subsidiaries, and spent two years as an associate producer with video game publisher Electronic Arts, according to his LinkedIn page.
While it’s not clear how Roberts and Munn met, they have at least one thing in common: Munn has said in interviews that she’s a big fan of first-person shooter games like “Halo.” Plus, Munn has her own professional history with video games. She worked for four years as a co-host of video game and pop culture variety show “Attack of the Show” on the now defunct G4 TV network. Munn’s role in geek culture helped her earn a dedicated following as she made the transition to acting full-time.
Beyond budding romance, the pair has plenty to look forward to next year. Munn reprised her role as Psylocke in the the upcoming X-Men movie “Dark Phoenix” due out in June 2019, and Roberts will be preparing the Fusion for their next Overwatch League season starting in February 2019.
