On the Emmy-award-winning HBO show “Veep,” Selina Meyer and her loyal team desperately try to hold things together in the nation’s highest office. VP Meyer was elected president at the end of the last season, but Walsh says not to worry: “No matter what position she’s holding, she and her team will screw things up.” (“Veep” returns to HBO next spring.)
Actor and comedian Matt Walsh plays Mike McLintock, the director of communications for the vice president. He says the cast did their research the old-fashioned way: By going out drinking in D.C. and listening to people talk at other tables.
