Julia Louis-Dreyfus Seizes the Moment at ‘Veep’ Season Three Party

The poll numbers are in: “Veep” is scoring big in its third campaign for HBO.

Monday’s premiere screening and party on the Paramount lot for Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ political comedy tour de force was a love fest for the actors and creator Armando Iannucci.

The screening of the first two episodes of season three, which debuts April 6, flew by with landslide of laughs. Louis-Dreyfus’ Selina Meyer scrambles to seize the moment when POTUS decides not to seek re-election — and hapless inside-the-Beltway hilarity ensues.

As guests mingled and noshed outside the Paramount Theater, Louis-Dreyfus made an unequivocal statement about where she stands on the question of whether she’s really having as much fun as it seems on screen. “I am,” she assured.

Co-star Tony Hale was proudly showing pictures of the latest addition to his family, a black and white pup named Walter, while backing up his boss 110%. “Julia sets the tone,” he said, admiringly.

In addition to a generous assortment of yummies, HBO was clearly trying to buy some votes with a clever party favor. Guests were given a hollowed out copy of Meyer’s latest book, “Some New Beginnings: Our Next American Journey,” designed to be filled up with jelly beans, red white and blue M&Ms, gummy bears and gum balls from a well-stocked candy bar.
