Kick Kennedy More buzz for Aaron Sorkin's cable news pilot, 'More As the Story Develops,' over at HBO. 'The New York Post' reports that Kathleen "Kick" Kennedy, 23, daughter of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (and granddaughter of RFK) has just signed on for a role.

She joins a starry lineup including Olivia Munn, Emily Mortimer, Jeff Daniels and Dev Patel ('Slumdog Millionaire').

Kennedy, who inherited her nickname "Kick" from her adventurous great-aunt Kathleen, is a Stanford graduate and recent Strasberg Institute acting student. The Sorkin drama marks 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 showbiz newbie to Hollywood producers and casting execs.
