Hugh Laurie has joined Veep, the hit HBO sitcom that takes a very cynical and funny look at American politics. The House star tweeted the news today after he was spotted filming scenes for the fourth season of Armando Iannucci’s show which stars Seinfeld’s Julia Louis-Dreyfuss and Arrested Development’s Tony Hale.
Seems the cat's out of the wet paper bag. I'm doing some episodes of Veep with the funniest and best cast on TV. I have not yet been fired.
