Aaron Sorkin ('The West Wing') has created a big break in the acting world for a member of the U.S. Kennedy political dynasty. Insiders say Kathleen "Kick" Kennedy, 23, daughter of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., has just been cast in Sorkin's HBO pilot 'More As This Story Develops.'

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.
