‘Veep’ premiered its second season on HBO this past Sunday (April 14), and it remains probably the best show you aren’t watching — it’s funny, it’s smart, and it stars the very handsome Reid Scott. So what are you waiting for?
When you watch ‘Veep’ and your vision finally clears and you can see through all the tears induced from laughing so hard it hurts, you’ll notice this tasty morsel: Reid Scott, the guy who plays Dan Egan on the show, an adviser to Julia Louis Dreyfuss’ Vice President Selina Meyer.
The show follows VP Selina as she tries — and fails — to be a more substantial entity in the White House, scurrying to avoid and clean up bad press about her and her politics. She has a crew that includes Scott’s Dan Egan, Anna Chlumsky’s Amy, Tony Hale from ‘Arrested Development,’ and comic veteran Matt Walsh.
The show is fantastic and there’s still plenty of time to get caught up and check it out in its second season. And if the synopsis and amazing cast don’t sell you, maybe Reid Scott will. The tall, dark, and handsome (TDH is the holy grail, ladies) actor has also starred on other TV shows like ‘My Boys,’ ‘The Big C,’ and ‘The Secret Life of the American Teenager,’ so chances are you — like me — have seen him around and not realized it until now.
