‘Veep’s Matt Walsh Joins Netflix’s ‘A Futile & Stupid Gesture’ National Lampoon Pic

The SAG Award nominee will be playing producer and publishing exec Matty Simmons in the Netflix pic directed by David Wain. A former newspaperman and credit card exec, Simmons was the CEO of National Lampoon publishers Twenty First Century Communications. Once the mag became a success, Simmons was a big advocate of expanding NL into other mediums like, fittingly, the movies. – Dominic Patten, Deadline Hollywood http://ift.tt/20cbxKj
