    Peter Capaldi nearly appeared on Veep as Malcolm Tucker

    While Peter Capaldi is primarily known as the twelfth incarnation of Doctor Who, for some he’ll always be remembered as Malcolm Tucker, the gloriously fiery, sweary spin doctor from ‘The Thick Of It’ and ‘In The Loop’. Between 2005 and 2012 Capaldi appeared in 24 episodes over four seasons as Malcolm Tucker, and deliciously delivered the unique mix of wit, expletives and threats that made the show just so funny and entertaining. The final season made it look as though Malcolm Tucker’s time in

    5 TV shows to look forward to in 2017

    Of course, even if that weren’t exciting enough, there’s the fact that this show is building off of a very rich and compelling source material – Neil Gaiman’s American Gods novel is possibly the best fantasy book I’ve read in years, if not ever, and I’m hugely excited to see that story adapted for the screen. American Gods is set to be released on Amazon Prime, at an as of yet unannounced date in early 2017. Including new characters played by Lenny Henry, Sarah and Charlie Higson, alongside al

    Veep’s writers are aware that the comedy is becoming too real

    ‘Veep’ has got quite the task on its hand to somehow match the absurdity of Donald Trump’s impending presidency, while at the same time finding humour in a political landscape that’s now so fraught and divisive. It turns out that ‘Veep’s cast is very much aware of just how large their task is, too, as Tony Hale admitted last week that the line between comedy and real-life politics has never been greyer. The ‘Arrested Development’ veteran, who plays Selina Meyer’s put upon but endlessly loyal a

    Hugh Laurie: ‘Julia Louis Dreyfus is the greatest actress I’ve ever seen’

    Hugh Laurie hasn’t just worked with some of the greatest television acting talent to ever step in front of a camera, but he’s roundly recognised as a pretty damn fine thespian himself who has mastered both comedy and drama. During a recent interview with TV Line Hugh Laurie revealed this individual to be Julia Louis-Dreyfus, which should come as no surprise to anyone who has seen the actress strut her stuff in the likes of ‘Seinfeld’, ‘The New Adventures Of Old Christine’ and ‘Veep’. It was in

    Veep showrunner admits they’ve already had to cut a joke because of Donald Trump

    The whole world is currently struggling to come to terms with Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Because of Trump’s gaffes, rhetoric, and cavalier approach to campaigning, shows like ‘House Of Cards’ and ‘Veep’ are going to have to change their tone and output to match him. ‘Veep’s’ showrunner David Mandel has now admitted that they’ve already been forced to change a scene from the upcoming new season because it was eerily similar to comments Donald Trump recently made about being ability t

    The 4 TV shows that predicted Donald Trump

    What it’s about: Episode two of Black Mirror’s second series, The Waldo Moment is about a cartoon character that runs for political office. How it’s like Trump: Both Waldo and Trump are oafish, abrasive characters, who first rose to prominence in a reality TV setting, and were able to find appeal amongst a disillusioned electorate due to seemingly existing outside of the political elite. Again, much like Trump, it soon becomes clear that Waldo is just as much, if not more, of a member of the e
