Minka Kelly Joins J.J. Abrams–Produced Pilot

Minka Kelly attends the Vanity Fair And Juicy Couture Celebration Of The 2013 Vanities Calendar With Olivia Munn at Chateau Marmont on February 18, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.

Deadline reports that Minka Kelly has been cast in the J.J. Abrams–produced Fox drama pilot. Formerly titled Inhuman, it's set in the near future when cops have android partners. (Meaning robot-people, not the phone. No one wants to watch a show about a cop whose partner is a phone. Or do they ... ) It's not specified what role Kelly will have, but we do know she will be climbing up the Friday Night Lights career power ranking.
