PASADENA, CALIF. (AP) - Julia Louis-Dreyfus says she spoke with two U.S. vice presidents to research her role in an upcoming HBO series.

The former “Seinfeld” actress portrays Vice President Selina Meyer in “Veep,” a comedy that debuts in April. The network says the character discovers the job is nothing like she expected and everything she was warned about.

Louis-Dreyfus wouldn’t reveal which vice presidents she spoke to, but Al Gore said Friday that he was one of them.

He says he’s looking forward to the series “because I like her so much.”

He says Louis-Dreyfus peppered him with questions for about an hour over coffee, wanting to learn details about what it was like to live in the security bubble.
