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?

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?

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?
