Whoever set up seating arrangements at last night’s State Dinner must get HBO.
Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who plays a bumbling vice president on the HBO series “Veep,” was seated next to her real-life counterpart at the White House dinner honoring French President Francois Hollande.
Louis-Dreyfus tweeted a photo of the two of them together – “Veep” and VP, side-by-side.

Asked by a reporter what her favorite part of the evening was, Louis-Dreyfus didn’t hesitate: “Look who I’m sitting next to,” she said.
That prompted the vice president to interrupt the conversation: “Hey, stop screwin’ around, she’s my date!” Biden said, according to the pool reporter stationed in the room. He started laughing and added, “Just kidding.”
(And no, the president didn’t call – at least not while the reporter was in the area.)
