RFK's Granddaughter Nabs Aaron Sorkin Role
By Christine Fenno Posted Jul 4th 2011 09:17AM
The new project will reportedly co-star Olivia Munn, Emily Mortimer, Jeff Daniels, and Dev Patel ('Slumdog Millionaire), and will take place in the world of cable news, according to the New York Post.
Kennedy, who inherited her nickname "Kick" from her adventurous great-aunt Kathleen, is a Stanford graduate and recent Strasberg Institute acting student. The Sorkin series will mark her TV acting debut.
Her dad, environmental activist RFK Jr., has been romantically linked to 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' star Cheryl Hines, an industry veteran who has allegedly played a hand in introducing the show biz newbie to Hollywood producers and casting execs.
As the Post points out, young Kick Kennedy's legacy isn't just in D.C.: Her great-grandfather and legendary family patriarch, Joseph P. Kennedy, co-founded a powerful studio in 1929 during Hollywood's "golden age." RKO Pictures employed the likes of Cary Grant, Fred Astaire and Katharine Hepburn.
