June 10 (UPI) — “Veep” and “My Girl” star Anna Chlumsky has joined the cast of AMC’s “Halt and Catch Fire” for its fourth and final season.
Set in the tech industry in the 1980s and early 1990s, the drama stars Lee Pace, Mackenzie Davis, Scoot McNairy, Kerry Bishé and Toby Huss.
“From Day 1 on set, Anna has brought a wonderful new energy to the show, that both complements and somehow even further elevates the work of our core ensemble. Anna brings a remarkable depth of personal experience and intention to this role, and we feel incredibly lucky to add an actress of her caliber to our palette even as we bring the series-long story of ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ to a close,” Christopher C. Rogers, the show’s creator and showrunner, said in a statement.
“We are huge fans of Anna and are honored that she’s become part of the ‘Halt’ family as it enters its final chapter,” added Christopher Cantwell, also a creator and showrunner. “She’s transformed the character of Katie into something truly special, and it’s quite a privilege to have such incredible talent bring this integral role to life. We can’t wait to share her work this season with our viewers.”
