The actress, who played fictional U.S. Vice President Selina Meyer on the political satire, has recruited Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky, Reid Scott, Sam Richardson, Timothy Simons, Clea DuVall and Matt Walsh to join her for the virtual reunion on 4 October. Additional special guests are expected to make appearance.
Showrunner David Mandel has also signed on as the moderator for the event, designed to boost donations to the Democratic Party in the swing state ahead of the presidential election in November, when Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris are aiming to oust incumbent Donald Trump and Mike Pence from the White House.
In a video message promoting the special cast reunion, Louis-Dreyfus declares, "Trump can't win reelection if he doesn't win Wisconsin. So the Democratic Party of Wisconsin has built an unprecedented voter mobilization operation, and they need resources in these final days to deliver Wisconsin to Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Harris. All roads to the White House go through the great state of Wisconsin. The future of democracy is on the line, people!"
Fans can donate as little or as much as they like to gain access to the get-together, which kicks off at 6 P.M. CT. Visit here for more information: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/veep-cast-reunion?refcode=201004Veep&amount=27.
