Inside the issue, Louis-Dreyfus talks about how much she likes working on “Veep,” and her past and present collaborators sing her praises.
JLD on cursing so much on “Veep”: “Once, when we were trying to come up with the particular perfect, horrible, swear-y thing to say in ‘Veep,’ I said, ‘You do realize that if we were 12, we would get in big trouble for this conversation.’ That was not part of the curriculum in high school, and the fact that it is now a part of the curriculum of my life is a pleasure, which is the understatement of the universe.”
“Veep” creator Armando Iannucci says of Louis-Dreyfus: “Julia’s not just a natural comedic performer — she’s a natural comedic brain. Once we have a script, she likes to go away and have a real think on what her character would do to react to the reality of every situation, if it would be funny to have her twitch, or to be thirsty, or if her mind was on something else.”
Larry David, creator of “Seinfeld,” calls her: “Bright, charming — striking, actually — and she had a great disposition, which, considering the bunker mentality that was ‘SNL’ at the time, wasn’t easy.”
The issue hits newsstands Friday, April 11 and “Veep” airs Sunday nights at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
