Why now? He’s the resident baddie on HBO’s new series, Veep.
Who cares? Matt Walsh, co-star of Veep and founder of Upright Citizens Brigade - the same place Reid got his start - or the loves of his life, his two dogs Bella and Dublin.
Where’s he from? You may remember him breaking hearts on the short-lived (yet hilarious) TBS series, My Boys, or his recurring role on The Big C.
What’s next? Well he has a solid record of starring opposite of strong female performers (Jordana Spiro, Laura Linney, Julia Louis-Dreyfus). Maybe we could see him hold his own with Amy Poehler, Julie Bowen or Tina Fey.
