Brian White joins 'Politics of Love'

Romantic comedy takes place in run-up to 2008 election

Brian White has been cast in the romantic comedy "Politics of Love," opposite Mallika Sherawat.

Inspired by the real-life romances that blossomed during Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign, "Love" takes place in the run-up to the 2008 election. White will play a black volunteer coordinator working for the local John McCain office who strikes unexpected sparks with the devoted Indian Obama volunteer coordinator (Sherawat).

Ruby Dee, Gerry Bednob and Loretta Devine co-star.

William Dear ("The Perfect Game") is directing a screenplay by Gary Goldstein ("If You Only Knew"). Nuclear Mango executives Govind Menon and William Sees Keenan are producing with Randy Turrow and Split Image Pictures' Vikram Singh.

White, who is repped by UTA and Luber/Roklin Management, is a regular on the TNT series "Men of a Certain Age." He next appears on the big screen in MGM's 3D thriller "The Cabin in the Woods," hitting theaters in January.

He most recently appeared in the features "I Can Do Bad All by Myself," "Twelve Rounds" and "Fighting."
