Because Tina Fey isn’t going to hog all of the special guest-star fun, Veep’s Reid Scott will be joining the upcoming second season of NBC’s Great News in a very Veep-ian way, minus the frequently colorful expletives aimed at a man named Jonah. He’ll be portraying a dashing and “highly intelligent New York Times reporter” named Jeremy who works with Katie (Briga Heelan) on a “dangerous” story for the news network, and the two slowly begin to become romantically attached in the process. (Get it, girl.) As for all of those Kate-Greg shippers out there, though, don’t lose too much hope. “The Katie-Greg stuff is definitely in the background,” showrunner Tracey Wigfield said. “Hopefully it will come to a head in some exciting way towards the later part of the season.” What great news!
