On the latest edition of KCRW's The Spin-Off, Joe and I chat with "Veep" stars Matt Walsh and Timothy Simons about the Emmy-winning comedy:
Since starring in Veep on HBO, Timothy Simons and Matt Walsh have found themselves having to think before they tweet. The two actors tell us how their own take on politics has changed since they started working on the show, and Simons explains how he accidentally got roped into endorsing a political candidate because of the show.
Walsh and Simons also share how the show has evolved over the years. Season 5 brought some big changes--filming moved from Baltimore to Los Angeles and they were working with a new showrunner. They explain how scenes may change from an initial table read to the final cut, and how having Trump in the real-life race expands the options for possible gaffes in future seasons of the show.
