It says a lot about a show when the deleted scenes are nearly as good if not funnier than the final cut seen on TV.
That’s the case with VEEP, HBO’s award-winning comedy about Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), a powerless Vice President who eventually finds herself just as powerless when she steps into the (squeaky) heels of the most powerful job in the world.
Ahead of season four -- premiering Sunday, April 12 -- ETonline has an exclusive montage of Meyer’s best one-liners from the cutting room floor of season three. The reel highlights Dreyfus’ hilarious ability to take Meyer on the campaign trail after spending the first two seasons inside the Eisenhower Executive Office Building -- just outside the reach of the West Wing.
While the deleted scenes are hilarious, one person fans never see break is Anna Chlumsky, who says “Amy, [Selina's Chief of Staff], is not going to find any of that stuff funny.” But she does tease that Amy and Dan (Reid Scott) will continue to "dance" around that 'will they or won't they' relationship when the show returns for season four.
The reel, as well as a number of extras, will appear on VEEP: The Complete Third Season, which is available on DVD/Blu-ray and digital HD starting Tuesday, March 31.
