Have I actually never written about the show Veep on here before? Xenia of the past I am ashamed of you! This series, currently in its second season on HBO, follows the day-to-day life of Selina Meyer, the Vice President of the US, played by the amazing Julia Louis-Dreyfus. I of course loved her as Elaine in Seinfeld and just when I started to think she would always be that character in my mind, Veep emerged as a resurrection of sorts. This character is nothing like Elaine and yet still fits the actress like a glove.
This seems to be just as much a “character she was born to play” as the one opposite of Jerry, George, and Kramer. Plus, it’s on HBO, so you know, swearing! What I immediately thought of when I first started watching this show was how Louis-Dreyfus playing herself in Curb Your Enthusiasm told Larry David that she wanted to work with HBO so that she could say “Fuck!” on TV. Well, here is to dreams coming true!
Oh and Tony Hale of “Buster Bluth” fame is in it as well!
