Veep Characters (Who Aren't JLD), Ranked

If you haven't watched Veep, I pity you, for you have missed one of the great comedic actors of our time in Julia Loius Dreyfus, and one of the sharpest, wittiest, well-written Sitcoms to come out in a loooong time. These characters are ranked subjectively based on my enjoyment of their role in the show. Season 5 starts April 24 I'm pumped!!
  1. 13.
    Tom James
    Has felt superfluous to me, but a good straight man. I keep waiting for him to have a đŸ’¡moment and save the day right before the end of the show - no wait, that's House.
  2. 12.
    Bill Ericsson
    Also feels superfluous. A slimy politician punching bag.
  3. 11.
    Catherine Meyer
    Sooo awkward and plays off the JLD mommy-issues like a seasoned pro.
  4. 10.
    Kent Davison
    Very dry and calculating. He and Cafferty play well off each other.
  5. 9.
    Richard Splett
    Blissful ignorance wrapped in enthusiastic exuberance.
  6. 8.
    Sue Wilson
    Incapable of a smile or humor beyond the straight insult, the Veep's Secretary likely drives a car with the license plate "0FCKSGVN"
  7. 7.
    Amy Brookheimer
    Seemingly seconds from an aneurysm or a Scanners-level head explosion, her rage comes out sublimely in the quiet give-and-take with Dan Egan.
  8. 6.
    Ben Cafferty
    Exhausted indifference, can sling insults and terrible ideas with the best of them.
  9. 5.
    Mike McLintock
    I love Matt Walsh, and he plays the stressful role of Press Secretary perfectly.
  10. 4.
    Gary Walsh
    JLD's clueless but well-intentioned bag man, he plays the affectionate lapdog role perfectly.
  11. 3.
    Dan Egan
    The conniving pretty boy who likes to think of himself as one step ahead of everyone but is just another pawn. Sexual tension with Amy Brookheimer level 10.
  12. 2.
    Jonah Ryan
    The oblivious and self-confident punching bag for everyone on the show (including his actual ball bag during a phenomenal arc with my fave Patton Oswalt in Season 4).
  13. 1.
    Roger Furlong
    An upset pick for sure, I just giggle as soon as he comes on screen because I know he's going to destroy someone verbally (usually his assistant, meekly trailing along behind him).
