The Best Selina Meyer Quotes From 'Veep'

4/30/2016 6:06pm EDT
20 Funny Quotes From Selina Meyer On HBO's 'Veep'
"It's getting trickier and trickier to satirize this stuff."

That's what actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus told the audience when she accepted an Emmy in 2015 for her role as Selina Meyer on HBO's hit comedy, 'Veep'. On the show, which is currently airing its fifth season, Louis-Dreyfus plays a President of the United States who frequently uses inappropriate language and is prone to committing major political gaffes.

Remind you of anyone? 'Veep' may have been created as an obvious political parody, but as Donald Trump stumbles closer and closer to the 2016 GOP nomination, Louis-Dreyfus can't be...

5 TV Shows You Should Binge Watch This Summer
Popcorn films once ruled the summer entertainment season. Now, TV is king. Every TV viewer, from the casual ones to the fanatics, easily finds shows that appeal to their binge-watching appetite among the ratings kings, or the ones critics obsess over. However, some smaller cult shows often get neglected by TV fans.

Being a television fan 1.0.1 says you must know all the highs and lows of shows like Breaking Bad, Lost, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, I Love Lucy, and The Sopranos. But they’re just a number of remarkably written, acted, and directed televisions series, some of which are currently ...

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Goes Nude For Rolling Stone, Magazine Adds John Hancock's Signature To Her US Constitution Tattoo

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Rolling Stone Magazine
Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus bares all on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine, but it's not the Veep star in her birthday suit that's got our attention.

The editors of the magazine depicted Louis-Dreyfus with a giant tattoo of the United States Constitution on her back and added some unnecessary ink in the form of John Hancock's signature. Only thing is -- John Hancock didn't sign the Constitution, he signed the Declaration of Independence.

"Hancock signed Dec. of Independence NOT Constitution.Yet another Mike f**k-up.Dummy," the actress wrote on her Twitter page after cat...

Reid Scott
Reid Scott charmed us as Brendan Dorff on TBS's quirky comedy My Boys. Now he's lending his voice to a super-quick snail as the title character in Netflix's first kid-oriented original series, Turbo FAST, a spinoff from the popular Dreamworks film. BFTV had the chance to chat with Reid recently about getting animated, and also snagged an update on his current TV gig, HBO's political laugher Veep.

"It’s always been my dream to be a cartoon, so when producer Chris Prynoski came to me to play the part – we worked together previously – I jumped at it," he told us. "Nothing is better than showi...

2013 Emmy Awards Predictions: Who Are The Favorites To Win?

9/20/2013 8:48pm EDT
2013 Emmy Awards Predictions

It’s been a while since we’ve had such a wild card Emmy season. Last year, Homeland was all but a lock in each of its major categories, but after a shaky second season, some strong competition from other long-running shows, and a buzzworthy new Netflix series, things are really up in the air pretty much all over the place. Still, I’ll do my best to make some predictions in the big categories. Just remember: This year, pretty much anything goes.

Breaking Bad
Downton Abbey
Game of Thrones
House of Cards
Mad Men

While I’d love to see Game of Thrones’ confident t...

TV Ratings: Basketball Gold For CBS; HBO's 'Veep' Returns Strong

4/18/2013 7:57am EDT
Once again, CBS was dominant in the ratings race, landing 13 of the Top 20 shows last week. It didn’t hurt that it broadcast the NCAA championship game, which yielded 23.43 million viewers as the week’s top program. Otherwise, ‘NCIS’ and its spinoff ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ were typically terrific. Other shows from CBS in the Top 20 included ’60 Minutes,’ ‘The Good Wife’ and ‘The Big Bang Theory.’ The impressive part? Some of those were reruns.

ABC performed fine with ‘Dancing With the Stars’ and ‘Modern Family,’ while NBC’s ‘The Voice’ outperformed FOX’s ‘American Idol’ yet again. The bad news...

'Veep' Season 2 Preview: Great Cast, Incredible Guest But Needs Writing Support

4/14/2013 10:00am EDT
Parks and Recreation is a show that benefits from binge viewing, especially in seasons one and two, when you see the quality shoot up spectacularly. I was hoping for the same with HBO’s Veep, which has its second season premiere tonight, which like Parks and Recreation has assembled one of the best comedy ensembles in all of television.

Alas, if anything, I think I laughed at Veep less in its first four episodes than I did all of last season when I found the show watchable, but not always enjoyable.

When the season opens, Vice President Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) is on a bit of a ...

Veep season 1 finale
Veep's first season wraps up on HBO this Sunday and we have an exclusive clip from the finale. Veep, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, was just recently given the green-light for a second season. Here's some info and a preview clip from the finale:

Selina finds herself in Ohio to support Rep. Roger Furlong (Dan Bakkedahl) for governor, but given the Veep’s low approval rating, he no longer wants the endorsement. Meanwhile, the Clean Jobs Bill comes back to haunt Dan – in the form of a possible Congressional hearing. After Selina tears up in her meeting with Furlong, Mike (Matt Walsh) and Amy (...

'Girls' And 'Veep' Renewed
HBO has quickly renewed their latest hit comedies “Girls” and “Veep” for a second season. What’s in store for the 20-somethings of “Girls” and vice president Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus)? There’s still a fruitful first season to get through.

“Girls” creator/star Lena Dunham said you’ll see many more embarrassing sexual mistakes for her character Hannah and all the girls. “They’re trying their hardest and they make mistakes, but they are working towards something,” Dunham said. “It’s a two steps forward one step back situation. They do need to grow up. That’s what the show is about. I...

'Veep' Takes On Political Comedy - And Provides Louis-Dreyfus With Another Plum Part

4/19/2012 6:12pm EDT
Do you enjoy ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’? Do you own the entire DVD collection of ‘The West Wing’? Can you recite phrases like “the master of his domain” and “maybe a dingo at your baby”? Then ‘Veep’ may be the show for you.

It’s got a bonafide TV star in the seemingly ageless Julia Louis-Dreyfus, it’s got White House sophistication, and perhaps most important of all, it’s got lots of hilariously awkward moments.

In the first three episodes available for preview, ‘Veep’ is clearly on the path to finding its groove, a balance of chaotic, political mumbo-jumbo coated with profanity, cringe-induc...

Anna Chlumsky
Anna Chlumsky attended a screening of the new HBO series "Veep" in New York City yesterday, and she looked amazing in a little black dress. She swept her hair to the side, reminding us of screen siren Veronica Lake.

The actress, who made her breakthrough in Hollywood at age 9 in 1991's "My Girl" opposite Macaulay Culkin, seems to be making a comeback.

In her new series, Julia Louis-Dreyfus becomes vice president, only to discover the job is nothing like she expected but everything she was warned about. Anna plays the chief of staff.
