Briefly digressing from movies to the world of premium cable (not, of course, TV, as HBO oft reminds us) 'Veep' is coming, with Julia Louis-Dreyfuss. Dreyfuss plays Selina Meyer, a new Vice President who is learning the 21st Century version of the insight of the late John Nance Garner, who noted that the Vice-Presidency was "not worth a bucket of warm spit." However, Nance didn't actually say "spit," he said something far ruder and that is easier to believe.
Curses ring out in the halls of power, as well as fights over who didn't make a fresh pot of coffee when they emptied the last one. That, it seems is going to be about the tone of 'Veep.' And if you want a preview of 'Veep' -- the cadence, the comedy, the language of it, whether Orwellian double-speak or soaring flights of four-letter words -- you need to see 'In the Loop.'
