'Veep' Stars Do Their Best 'Rocky' Impersonation To Support Her Cancer Battle

November 10, 2017

Julia Louis-Dreyfus got some love from her Veep co-stars this week as she continues treatment for breast cancer.

Sam Richardson (Veep's Richard Splett) and Matt Walsh (Veep's Mike McLintock) did their best Rocky impersonation to help Julia get ready for her third round of chemotherapy, but in typical Veep fashion… it didn’t work too well.

Richardson and Walsh started by trying to give her inspirational quotes, but kept giving her quotes from controversial figures. 

So, instead, they sang a very out of tune version of “Eye of the Tiger.”

Louis-Dreyfus called the pair “darling bozos” when she shared it on Twitter.

Richardson and Walsh aren’t the first Veep stars to show their support in a fun video. Tony Hale (Veep's Gary Walsh) and Timothy Simons (Veep's Jonah Ryan) used Katy Perry’s “Roar” on video to show their support earlier this fall:

Julia responded to their video by quoting the Katy Perry song in an Instagram post:

Chemo #2: finito. We are NOT fucking around here. “I’ve got the eye of the tiger. The Fighter dancing through the fire cuz I am a champion and your’re going to hear me ROAR.” Thanks to @mrtonyhale & @timothycsimons & @katyperry for their hilarious and loving inspiration.
