The Hill Managing Editor Lands Speaking Role in HBO’s Veep

According to D.C. political newspaper The Hill, their own managing editor Bob Cusack has landed a speaking role in HBO’s series Veep.

Despite the show’s heavy (and often comical) interaction between fictional Vice President Selina Meyer and the political press, Cusack will reportedly not portray himself or a journalist.

If not a journalist, then what will Cusack play? He’s apparently not revealing it quite yet. But acting has long “been in his blood,” the paper reports. His parents ran a theater company in Manhattan and he often appeared in plays there. As a baby, he landed a role in a 1970s Pampers diaper ad, earning him Screen Actors Guild credentials.

Cusack has reportedly appeared in 30 TV shows, commercials, and films, including as an extra in the 2012 HBO film Game Change.
