A year after joining ABC's Georgetown pilot, where he played a party-swapping presidential speechwriter, James Wolk's signed up another political project, Greg Berlanti's USA miniseries Political Animals. Wolk is being cast as Doug, the son (and chief of staff) of Elaine Barish, a divorced former first lady reincarnated as the secretary of State. If Hillary Clinton had a son and less patience for Bill, it would almost be eery. [Deadline]
