While most of Washington, D.C. knows Bob Cusack as the managing editor of The Hill, fans of the HBO show Veep will get to know him next year when he makes an appearance in a speaking role. Not that acting is anything new to Cusack. According to The Hill’s Judy Kurtz, he’s appeared in “more than 30 TV shows, commercials and films.” You may remember that he was recently an extra in Game Change.
We reached out to Cusack, who told us, “”It was a bit surreal and one of the best days I’ve ever had on Planet Earth. Hanging out with the cast was very cool.” Cusack wasn’t able to reveal his role, but he told Kurtz that he “doesn’t play himself or a journalist in the critically acclaimed show.”
