‘Veep’ Season 2 Preview: Meet the New Characters
While HBO had the fortune of pairing ‘Girls‘ and ‘Veep‘ together in their first seasons, the second go around saved the Emmy-winning political comedy for last with a season 2 premiere of April 14. Julia Louis-Dreyfus will return as our favorite put-upon Vice President Selina Meyer, along with the remainder of the staff from ‘Veep’ season 1, but who are the new faces in the cast? Get a look at Kevin Dunn (‘Luck,’ ‘Transformers‘) and Gary Cole (‘Pineapple Express‘) in their new roles inside!
The upcoming April 14 premiere of ‘Veep’ season 2 will bring back all of our favorite vice presidential characters, from Gary (‘Arrested Development‘s’ Tony Hale) to Amy (‘Hannibal‘s’ Anna Chlumsky), but what of the new faces joining the ranks this year? In advance of Sunday’s premiere, HBO has released a new featurette getting us acquainted with two major recurring characters in the coming season, that of Gary Cole‘s Senior Strategist Kent Davidson, and Kevin Dunn‘s Chief of Staff Ben Caffrey.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus previously teased of the Emmy-winning comedy’s second season that “we have a lot of international storylines,” but the new characters on the home front will likely give the presidential comedy its biggest surge in the polls yet.
