The show features Dev Patel of “Slumdog Millionaire,” Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer and Olivia Munn.

“Kick” a recent Stanford grad, has a seasoned acting mentor.

Her dad’s new girlfriend, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star Cheryl Hines, was spied showing Kick’s can-do-can around Tinsel Town to agents and producers.

Kathleen’s great-grandfather, Joseph P. Kennedy, was one of the founders of RKO Pictures, where he had an affair with silent screen sexbomb Gloria Swanson.

And uncle JFK was no slouch in the Hollywood wild man department – reportedly bedding Marilyn Monroe repeatedly.
