Casting Room: Is Hugh Laurie Your New Veep?!


Before new shows and movies are on your radar, they’re being planned, executed, and put into motion by production teams far and wide. Each week, Glam is going to give you the rundown on your favorite celebrities and their new gigs, from Hollywood’s rising stars to Broadway’s top talents. Welcome to the Casting Room.


When Julia Louis-Dreyfus ascended in rank as leader of the free world on Veep, we were left with one question: who will fill her vice presidential role? Rumor has it that HBO made a house call to Hugh Laurie. The Emmy Award-winner has been seen on set of the comedy, reportedly shooting scenes for an arc that will span several episodes. We can only hope that his arrival to the White House isn’t short-lived.
