Excess Hollywood: 'My Girl' star Anna Chlumsky elected to 'Veep'

  • My Girl star Anna Chlumsky will co-star with Julia Louis-Dreyfus in HBO’s Veep pilot. The actress is set to play Louis-Dreyfus’ insecure chief-of-staff. Insecure, because she remembers what happened the last time she thought she had someone’s back. (Sorry.) [Deadline]
  • Ryan Phillippe has joined the cast of Set Up, which centers on a group of friends that find themselves in the middle of a diamond heist. And cast in Set Up: Step Up star Jenna Dewan Tatum, who apparently uses an old Boggle sheet to choose her projects. [Variety]
  • The producers for The House of Blue Leaves confirm that Jennifer Jason Leigh is set to star alongside Ben Stiller and Edie Falco in the Broadway show. (Previews begin April 4; the show opens April 25.) She will play Stiller’s character’s mistress, named Bunny Flingus.
  • Disney XD had ordered Pack of Wolves, a comedy about three boys — Edison, Darwin, and Albert Oppenheimer — raised by their single dad, who happens to be a genius professor. Bazinga? [Deadline]

      No photo? Most of us have not seen her since she was a kid.

    Yay! Anna!

    So excited that she is returning to acting… Enjoyed her in “In the Loop”, which is a fantastic movie, RENT IT. Even though she had a relatively minor supporting role, it was good to see her holding her own next to major players. To think, just a few years ago, she was working for Zagat restaurant surveys!

    Man, Veep just keeps getting better. Chlumsky was awesome in In The Loop, so pairing her back up with Iannucci guarantees even more great stuff.

    I know that a lot of you Americans love our British humour.

    If you loved In The Loop try and get hold of the series The Thick Of It.

    It is comedy genius!!! Iannucci + Louis-Dreyfus is my personal comedy wet dream!!!
