Brian White has boarded the romantic comedy Politics of Love, starring opposite Mallika Sherawat.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is inspired by the real-life romances that blossomed during Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign, and 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.

No production date was announced.
