Veep’s Matt Walsh talks about how the series changed his reaction to political reality and his favorite moments from season five.
Despite its White House locale, Veep’s Matt Walsh reminded me very early in our conversation that the HBO series is still an office workplace comedy. Sure, the boss is the President of the United States, but ultimately the cast of characters are effectively typical office archetypes. As such, Matt Walsh is absolutely someone you would meet and instantly befriend in your typical office setting. He’s as easy-going a person as you’d meet. By the end of our talk, we’d already swapped vacation plans for our kids’ summer breaks (his were much better than mine).
Just like that friendly and very funny guy you know in the cube down the hall from yours.
