Q&A with Veep’s Tony Hale: No Press Conference Necessary

Tony Hale

The Live Q&A has ended.

  • In last week's ep, everyone I talked to had the same physical reaction to your reaction to Selina/Tom, mimicking your body language subconsciously - did that happen on set, too?

    Not sure. I/Gary was in a state of PTSD after witnessing that.

  • Do you have real-life shoulder problems from carrying the bag?

    Just the opposite. They’re now practically bionic.

  • What is the funniest thing Gary carries in Selina's bag?

    Gary would never shame the bag with a “funny” item.

  • Gary and Selina: I feel lately more than ever she's shutting him out of her life. They used to be closer. Do you agree? I miss some of their most emotionally intimate moments.

    Um…what? This is the first I’ve heard of this and all Gary’s internal organs have just shut down.

  • Personally, do you want Gary to continue being Selina's bag man or should he have taken that cheese business with Dana overseas?

    Dana who? I know not of what you speak. Selina is Gary's queen.

  • Do you ever have moments where you break character because the scene you were shooting was too funny? Thank you!!

    ALL THE TIME. Those are the moments I love.

  • Whose idea was it for Gary to have a degree from the Cornell School of Hotel Administration?

    His Mother’s idea. Gary was pretty much her valet since birth.

  • Which cast member makes you break character and laugh the most?

    Without a doubt Julia. It’s embarrassing.

  • What is your favorite Selina nickname?

    Messiah. He’d use it if it was appropriate.

  • Does Gary get to keep anything for himself in the bag? If he needs a tissue can he use what's in the bag or does he have to find his own?

    There’s a mini-bag within the bag which holds his personalized tissue and emergency xanax.
