    Veep does not need to add new cast to its core ensemble from season one. Every new character they write should remain a Guest contender for Emmy consideration. Gary Cole is looking a lot smarter than Kevin Dunn in retrospect. Know your place and stay there.

    Believe it or not, but not everything is about awards.

    The show already has many supporting players. Adding another doesn’t seem like a good idea. Poor Sufe Bradshaw could get sidelined even further, though I’m aware that it’s not easy to heavily involve a secretary role on a regular basis.

    Definitely keep your eyes on this HBO website, which serves as a “production journal” for Season 4 from the cast and crew’s Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram activity:

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, Julia Louis-Dreyfus was asked to host The Academy Awards and turned it down!

    Too bad, Julia would have been great.  She is always money at the award shows. 

    Not looking forward to NPH musical numbers at the Oscars.

    Hugh Laurie Lands Veep Role – Could He Be the New Tiltle Character?
    By Michael Slezak / November 19 2014, 3:02 PM PST
    http://tvline.com/2014/11/19/hugh-laurie-veep-season-4-vice-president-cast/

    Hugh Laurie is making a house call to Season 4 of Veep.

    The two-time Golden Globe winner (and six-time Emmy nominee) was spotted filming a scene today by Baltimore Media Blog, and HBO has confirmed to TVLine that he’ll indeed appear in the Julia Louis-Dreyfus comedy when it returns with fresh episodes next year.

    The show’s reps declined to offer details on Laurie’s character — but a source indicates the stint will be for multiple episodes.

    Louis-Dreyfus’ character, Selina Meyer, became the leader of the free world at the end of Season 3, when the never-seen POTUS suddenly resigned to care for his ailing wife. At the time, the hapless Meyer was in the midst of a quickly sinking bid for her party’s presidential nomination.

    While Baltimore Media Blog speculated that Laurie might be playing Meyer’s campaign manager, that role was already occupied in the Season 3 finale by Anna Chlumsky’s ambitious Amy.

    One role that wasn’t filled when we last saw Selina (and her very squeaky shoes) addressing the nation: A potential Biden to her Obama. And while Laurie’s British accent would have to be concealed (just like he did during his House days) in order for him to play her running-mate, a Louis-Drefyus/Laurie ticket would be potentially unstoppable — at least from a comedic standpoint.

    Last month, AMC signed on as co-producer (along with BBC) of a six-to eight-episode event series adaptation of John le Carre’s The Night Manager, starring Laurie and Tom Hiddleston (Thor).

    I hope Laurie is a new love interest – that would be hilarious.

    Fantastic news. I recall Laurie saying that he was done with TV after House finished up, but I guess he either must have just been referring to roles as a main cast member or something about Veep made him change his mind.
