New Chief of Staff for HBO’s Veep

By Jacob Klein on Oct 18, 2012 to Veep

A new actor will join the cast of the Emmy award winning comedy Veep for its sophomore season. Kevin Dunn (Luck, Transformers) joins the cast of Veep Season 2 as

“…the President’s Chief of Staff. Pragmatic and no-nonsense, Ben finds himself unable to navigate the all-spin-all-the-time world of Washington politics.”

Julia Louise-Dreyfus picked up an Emmy this year for Outstanding Female in a Comedic Role and the show is hoping to add to their hardware collection again this year with season 2.

In other Veep news it looks like initial script readings have begun as cast member Timothy Simons has been tweeting from the set. Here’s the latest from him:



We’ll keep you updated as to a possible premiere date for Veep season 2 but if filming begins now and with two other comedies premiering this winter we expect the new season of Veep to more realistically fit into it’s previous scheduling slot behind Game of Thrones in March.

I love this show. I watch the reruns over and over On Demand, it’s hilarious. It makes me sad knowing that we have to wait until next spring for season 3 though.

I’m looking forward to the return of VEEP. I’m a little unsure of adding a new cast member into the mix when everyone on the show seems to gel together so well as it is. Their playing off of each other is quite a delight to watch.
I’m sure the new addition will work out fine but there still is the feeling of “don’t change what works.” VEEP still gets my vote!
