Stephen Colbert Tells 'Veep' Cast To Stop Destroying America in 'Late Show' Crossover Sketch - Watch Here!

Stephen Colbert interrupts a special The Late Show episode (May 9) of Veep to warn Julia Louis-Dreyfus‘ Selina Meyer and her staff that their behavior is infecting other realities!

The 58-year-old actress and her co-stars – Anna Chlumsky, Tony Hale, Reid Scott, Timothy Simons, Matt Walsh, Kevin Dunn, Gary Cole and Sam Richardson – filmed a special cold open for The Late Show, which played out like a bonus scene of the hit HBO political comedy — until Stephen transported himself into the headquarters.

“I beg you, stop! The things that you’re doing on this earth then happen in my world, over and over again,” Stephen says in the skit, written by Veep‘s writers and directed by show-runner David Mandel.

Stephen later welcomed the ensemble cast onto the show as guests, including all the participants in the cold open as well as Sarah Sutherland and Clea DuVall – Watch more after the cut!

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Explains Why a 'Seinfeld' Reunion Isn't Happening

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is on the cover of the latest issue of PorterEdit, out now.

Here’s what the Veep star had to say…

On hiding some of her many awards under her bed: “I don’t want to keep them all in one spot – that feels sort of show-off-y. So I have some out…but others are tucked away under a bed.”

On joining the cast of NBC’s Saturday Night Live in 1982 – and why it was not a happy experience: “It was so misogynistic and not female-friendly whatsoever. But I was also 21 and unprepared to be there as a performer. A mash-up of those two very negative things made it a hard time, but I learned a lot.”

On why she has no desire to do a Seinfeld reunion: “I don’t want to sully it. It was pretty special and it’s been a long time now. You don’t want to f–k something like that up.”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Says 'Veep' Is 'More Extreme' Due To Current Political Climate

Julia Louis-Dreyfus stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers and discussed how President Donald Trump‘s administration has made her hit political HBO comedy Veep seem “quaint” by comparison.

“It’s hard because it feels like this current administration, I won’t even name his name, but it feels as if he’s doing a better episode of the show than we are,” the 58-year-old actress told Seth.

“And except, of course, I don’t think it’s funny what he’s doing,” Julia continued. “I think the season reflects it. I think it’s more extreme. It’s more out there and what we’re doing this season had we tried it four season ago, would have been too outrageous, too broad.”

Julia also discussed how it felt to say goodbye to Veep and how she is satisfied with how the series ends: “I’m very somewhat grief-stricken to say goodbye to it because it was a total endeavor of passion and love. I love this gig more than I can possibly articulate.”

“I think I reached a lot of people. I was able to raise a lot of money for women who have had mastectomies, who need reconstruction but insurance doesn’t cover that, and I was really happy to be able to do that. The outpouring of support was quite overwhelming,” Julia said.

She later added that an important part of her treatment was her laughter from her kids and Veep coworkers.

“It helped me get through chemotherapy in a big way,” Julia explained.
