What happens when a freshman female Member of Congress whos successful in everything but love moves in with two of her male colleagues? Comedy, thats what!ABC announced Wednesday that Scrubs actress Sarah Chalke has been cast in a new television pilot, Freshmen, as a former high-power businesswoman just elected to Congress. Shes super-duper successful, but when it comes to men, she is a disaster waiting to happen, Reuters reports. After arriving in D.C., Chalkes character moves in with two male freshman Members. Could love soon be on the horizon? Of course, even television magic cant match the real deal.Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) has shared a Capitol Hill rowhouse with several Congressional colleagues over the years, including Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Rep. Bill Delahunt (D-Mass.). And just like a sitcom, hilarity has ensued: The roomies have dealt with everything from a pesky rodent problem to paying the bills to deciding whos in charge of cooking dinner.Unlike ABCs show, HOH guesses Schumer and his roomies probably dont spend much time dishing on their love life: The New York Times once noted that on weeknights, they shoot the breeze in their underwear in the Capitol Hill town house where two of them sleep in unkempt beds in the living room like so many superannuated frat boys.
Vice President Joe Biden waits to conduct a mock swearing-in ceremony with Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, in the Capitol's Old Senate Chamber, December 2, 2014. Schatz was sworn in to serve the remainder of his term since he was appointed to the seat after Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, passed away.
