President Selina Meyer? That's a scary thought and it's reality on Veep. The HBO comedy starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus is back for a fourth season and things are radically different: The veep is in the White House and the stakes couldn't be higher.
So is everybody operating on their A-game? Of course not. Having Selina in the office of the president is a big step for the Emmy-winning HBO series. It's a whole new ballgame, so we asked the cast to sum up the season all in one word. Could they do it? Yes…and no. Hyphens were involved.
Plus, we got the dish from Louis-Dreyfus, Anna Chlumsky, Timothy Simmons, Sam Richardson, Gary Cole and Matt Walsh about why it's so terrifying to have Selina Meyer with the nuclear codes.
"I think the scariest part is obvious: Selina Meyer is president. That's freakin' terrifying. That's like a horror movie," Louis-Dreyfus told us. "And the best part of Selina Meyer being president? I don't know, four more years of her screwing up and we can laugh at her?"

Veep returns Sunday, April 12 at 10:30 p.m. on HBO.
