Julia Louis-Dreyfus to play VP in HBO comedy

"Seinfeld" alum Julia Louis-Dreyfus is getting into politics. The Emmy-winning actress will star as the vice president of the United States in HBO's upcoming comedy series "Veep."

According to Deadline, Louis-Dreyfus will play Selina Meyer, a former senator who is elected vice president and discovers that the gig isn't quite what she was expecting.

The series, which is set "very near the White House," will co-star Anna Chlumsky (who starred in the 1991 Macaulay Culkin drama "My Girl") as Meyer's chief of staff and Tony Hale ("Arrested Development") as her right-hand man.

A world of secrets on 'The Killing'

[Editor's Note: If you haven't seen the latest episode of "The Killing," beware -- there are plenty of spoilers below!]

Gold stars, high fives and double rainbows for you amateur sleuths out there who speculated that Rosie wasn't the girl in the cell phone video that closed last week’s episode.

Despite their bad boy exteriors – I laughed just typing that – Jasper and Kris cracked during questioning and confessed that it was actually Sterling in the video, dressed in Rosie’s Halloween costume.

When confronted, Sterling blamed the copious amount of blood at the scene on savage nosebleeds and said sex with the boys was consensual. She also told Linden that Rosie left the dance early and had changed since her breakup with Jasper – she’d been lying to her parents, cutting class and occasionally disappearing on a city bus to an unknown destination. Sterling’s theory was that Rosie had met someone she couldn’t tell anyone about.

Lane Garrison talks prison, bad decisions

Former “Prison Break” actor Lane Garrison found himself locked up in real life after he was convicted of vehicular manslaughter in 2007.

Garrison opened up on the “Today” show Monday about what life was like behind bars.

“You have to trust that one of these guys, when you close your eyes, isn’t just going to wake up in the middle of the night, pull you off your rack and beat you with a lock or stab you,” Garrison, who was shuffled between eight prisons during his sentence, recalled.

Coachella: Arcade Fire lights up the crowd

A cheer rose from the floor of the polo field as Arcade Fire took the stage at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival - the sound of conquering heroes returning to an event that helped launch them.

"Coachella is really the first festival we ever played, so it has a special place in our heart, and we don't take it for granted," frontman Win Butler told the audience Saturday night.

The Montreal-based indie rock band made their Coachella debut in 2005, just after the release of their acclaimed freshman CD, "Funeral." In 2011, they return as winners of this year's top Grammy prize - "Album of the Year" - for their third disc, "The Suburbs." It's the ultimate indie success story.
