Minka Kelly, Jason Dohring Join the CW's Body Politic

Minka Kelly, Jason Dohring Join the CW's Body Politic

Ooh, now here's a pilot pairing I like: Minka Kelly and Jason Dohring have been hired for the CW's Body Politic, a show about DC political life through the eyes of young up-and-comers.

Kelly will play Hope, who moves to DC from Michigan after her mother's death and joins the staff of the newly appointed attorney general (Tim Matheson) — who just happens to also be her long-lost father. Dohring's coming aboard to play a reporter with The Washington Post.

Never fear, Friday Night Lights fans: Since Lyla's a senior this year anyway, Kelly's casting doesn't mean anything about that show's chances for renewal. Dohring was supposed to be in another DC-set pilot — HBO's The Washingtonienne — so I'm not sure what's going on there, but I like the idea of him sharing a screen with Kelly.

What say you? Could this casting make you interested in the show? And is anyone else getting kind of a Sammy's Hill-ish vibe from the description so far?

Of course she's popping up now that John Mayer and Aniston have 'broken up'. Give it a rest.

I immediately thought of Sammy's Hill as well! It'll be great to see Jason Dohring on a show again. Loved him on Veronica Mars.

I'll give it a shot just because of Jason Dohring - loved him in Veronica Mars.

I love Jason Dohring from his Veronica Mars days so I'd probably give this a shot. I work on the Hill though and get pretty frustrated by most characterizations of Washington. They're usually so unrealistic and absurd.

Sammy's Hill is the first thought that came to mind. I like the casting and the concept. Maybe she can still make guest appearance on FNL if both are picked up; as Lyla, she really did grow on me. Good for her.

I have heard and dealt with so much politic with this past election and the economy etc that I don't want to spend a night watching a show on politics. I will miss Lyla on FNL and was hoping to still see a little of her even if she is a senior.
