Join a live chat with 'Veep's' Anna Chlumsky today

August 19, 2013|By Glenn Whipp

Join Anna Chlumsky, Emmy-nominated for her supporting turn this season on the HBO comedy "Veep," for a live video chat today at 11 a.m. PDT.

Chlumsky, who plays the careerist chief of staff to Julia Louis-Dreyfus' vice president, was one of three members of the show's stellar ensemble to win Emmy nominations. (Louis-Dreyfus and Tony Hale also received nods.)

Of course, if you came of age in the early '90s, you probably remember Chlumsky for her sweet turn opposite Macaulay Culkin in "My Girl." She made a sequel and then took a break from acting. When Chlumsky returned after graduating from the University of Chicago, she mixed comedy and drama, eventually winning the eye of Armando Iannucci, who cast her in the political satire "In the Loop." Obviously, it must have been a fine experience for both as Iannucci hired her for "Veep" shortly afterward.

We'll talk to Chlumsky about what it was like to give birth to her first child and win her first Emmy nomination in the space of a week as well as the creative process that goes into making "Veep" one of television's finest comedies. We'll also be happy to ask your questions. So hit the RSVP button above, submit your queries and we'll see you at the appointed time.
