With its well-deserved buzz and Emmy win for star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 'Veep' is bound to attract some major attention for its impending second season. We've already heard at least one name joining in a recurring capacity, that of former 'Luck' and 'Transformers' star Kevin Dunn, but who's next? Well, according to one source, character actor Gary Cole is about to join the Vice Presidential sitcom in a major recurring role, but as whom? And what political figure might he be based on?
Thanks to HBO, Kevin Dunn won't be out of a job very long. The pay cabler's horse-racing drama 'Luck' may have been shut down just as production began on a second season, but that doesn't mean its cast should have to lose the race! Series star (as well as 'Transformers' dad) Kevin Dunn will take a significant role in the upcoming second season of the Emmy-winning 'Veep,' but as whom? Is one 'Veep' staffer out of a job?
We thought about making a joke about how 'Parks and Recreation's Amy Poehler stealing Julia Louis-Dreyfus' husband Brad Hall might have been what caused the split between her and Will Arnett, but then we just got sad. Then we tried to make it into a joke about Julia stealing Amy's Emmy for Outstanding Female Lead, but then we just got sad about her and Will Arnett again. But anyway, Brad Hall is going to be on 'Parks and Recreation,' or whatever.
Well, we can't say we saw that coming! Sorry Amy Poehler,
Hanna Horvath Lena Dunham, Melissa McCarthy, Edie Falco, Zooey Deschanel and Tina Fey! Julia Louis-Dreyfus has officially taken the 2012 Emmy for Outstanding Leading Actress in a Comedy Series, winning for her role as Vice President Selina Meyer of HBO's 'Veep.'
Why so glum, ladies? Let it never be said that HBO is entirely a boys' club, what with its current zeitgeist of 1920's gangsters, sword-swinging warriors; as today the ladies have their day. After airing only two and three episodes respectviely, HBO has graciously renewed both Julia Louis-Dreyfus 'Veep' and Lena Dunham's buzz-worthy 'Girls' for sophomore seasons. But for how many episodes?
