Tony Hale on his Emmy nomination and what's really in Gary's bag

Tony Hale, who plays Gary on HBO’s critically acclaimed Veep, is on a roll: He received his second Emmy nomination for supporting actor in a comedy series early this morning. (Hale won in this category for Veep last year.) Hale joins his costars Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Anna Chlumsky, who were nominated for lead actress in a comedy series and supporting actress in a comedy series, respectively; their show was also nominated for outstanding comedy series. We last saw Gary going to the White House alongside Selena, the newly instated president of the United States.

I was like, “Are you kidding?” I couldn’t stop saying, “Are you joking?” And they were like, “We would not joke about this.” READ FULL STORY
