Emmy chat: Anna Chlumsky ready to talk 'Veep' meltdowns on Wednesday

There have been plenty of meltdowns and angry, unprintable words over the course of "Veep's" four seasons, but none has been more cutting than campaign manager Amy Brookheimer's tirade a few episodes back. You could practically see the smoke coming out of actress Anna Chlumsky's ears as she told Julia Louis-Dreyfus' POTUS that she'd had it. (Sample: "I wouldn't let you run a bath without having the Coast Guard and the Fire Department standing by. But yet, here you are, running America. You are the worst thing that has happened to this country since food in buckets. And maybe slavery.")

Well, at least she qualified that last part. Chlumsky will be stopping by The Times for a live video chat on Wednesday at 2 p.m. PDT to talk about this epic rant and the past season of "Veep," which has been the show's darkest to date. (And it hadn't exactly been sunshine and lollipops up to this point.)

When Chlumsky visited last year, she did warn us that "Veep" is very much a cautionary tale about being careful what you wish for. And sure enough, we're hard-pressed to remember any character on the show enjoying one moment of satisfaction after Selina Meyer became president. It sure didn't happen with this guy.

So we'll be talking about all that and asking your questions too. If you have a query you'd like us to pass on, tweet it to us, using the hashtag #askLATimes.
