Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Veep costars lip-sync to support her fight against cancer
In September, Julia Louis-Dreyfus announced that she was diagnosed with breast cancer. “The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring family and friends, and fantastic insurance through my union,” Louis-Dreyfus wrote in the statement she posted to her social media.
On Friday, two of those friends — Veep costars Tony Hale and Timothy Simons — made their support public with a lip-sync to Katy Perry’s “Roar.”
“Hello Julia, my name is Tony and I will be playing the role of ‘Julia Louis-Dreyfus,'” Tony says.
“Hello Julia, my name is Tim, and I will be playing the role of ‘Cancer,'” Tim says.
The actors then begin a choreographed lip-sync in which Tony’s “Julia Louis-Dreyfus” beats up “Cancer” before the song’s chorus, where they hold up the song’s lyrics in support of their costar.
