Scoop: Veep Elects Kevin Dunn as New Chief of Staff - But There's a Catch

Kevin Dunn VeepVeep is staffing up ahead of Season 2.

TVLine has learned that Kevin Dunn (Luck, Samantha Who?) is joining the HBO comedy in the recurring role of Ben, the president‘s new chief of staff (not to be confused with Vice President Meyer’s chief of staff, Amy, played by Anna Chlumsky).

Dunn’s credits also including playing Sawyer’s pre-island partner Gordy on Lost.

Little is known about Veep‘s second season, except that production is slated to begin this month and we’ll “meet some political people from Denmark,” the show’s Emmy-winning leading lady, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, recently told TVLine, before adding with a laugh, “which is on the cutting edge of the political universe where all global decisions are made… No offense to Denmark!”
