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?
