Disturbing goings-on at Entertainment Weekly this week, with Kevin Spacey dressing as Selina Meyers from Veep for the cover of this week’s “25 Best Characters on Television” tribute. And an alternate cover featuring Julia Louis Dreyfus as Frank Underwood from House of Cards (after the jump). Both equally terrifying and equally unnecessary.
From Entertainment Weekly:
We’ve got two covers to swap this week—one featuring Louis-Dreyfus as the vicious Frank from Netflix’s gritty D.C. drama, and the other showing off Spacey as the hapless Selina on HBO’s comedy hit. In both issues, you’ll go deep inside the minds of both actors: Louis-Dreyfus lays down the law with her 11 commandments of comedy (Number 9: The F-word is a beautiful word), while Spacey walks us through all the influences (like Morgan Freeman) who helped him create the most insidious POTUS in TV history.
It goes on from there: Frank and Selina are both on our list of the 25 Best Characters on TV Right Now. From Orange Is the New Black and Sleepy Hollow to Mad Men, Broad City and The Mindy Project, EW’s staff of TV nerds have chosen the 25 characters that we couldn’t seem to get off our minds this past season.
