Meet The Young Kennedy Starring In Aaron Sorkin's New HBO Drama

Kathleen “Kick” Kennedy, the daughter of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., just booked her first big Hollywood job.

She’ll be starring on Aaron Sorkin‘s new HBO drama “More As the Story Develops.”

Kennedy, who went to Stanford, is a drama student at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York.

The New York Post’s version of Kennedy’s entree to Hollywood: her father’s new girlfriend, Cheryl Hines of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” has been setting her up with all the right introductions.

But it’s not like Kennedy lacked industry connections before her dad started dating Hines — she climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro last year with Jessica Biel and Emile Hirsch.

Kennedy played herself in a season-four cameo on “Gossip Girl” — but the only “reel” we could turn up on her is this amusing Teva spot, in which she talks about sleeping in a Disneyland elevator for hours at the age of two.

And these fragrance commercial/music video type short films. (One is embedded below.)

Like what you see? According to her Twitter account, Kennedy’s looking to sublet an NYC apartment.
