It's sponsored by Audi and its intended to promote the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards telecast on Monday. But forget all that for a moment, and just watch these three superb performers take off with this satirical reality-TV premise and totally romp. Cranston's too good to believe.   #sigshell { float: left; width: 320px; height: 52px; margin: 20px 0px; display: block; } #sigheadshot{ float: left; margin: 0px 10px 0px 0px; } #sigtwitter { margin-right: 5px; }

I love the Entertainment Weekly covers this week that show Kevin Spacey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus in the shoes, shirt, blouse and suits of each other's presidential character. It reminded me how lucky Baltimore is to have these remarkable actors making two of the best series ever on television here in Baltimore in 2014. One of the reasons they are so great is because they are so fearless as actors. Dressing up as each other's presidential TV character (Frank Underwood and Selina Meyer)

It may come as a shock to longtime stock-fund watchers, but Dreyfus, long the home of conservative bond and money-market funds, had three of the top 10 equity funds for the 12 months ended Sept. 30, and they are very aggressive funds.Although previous Dreyfus administrations might shudder,Dreyfus not only has a junk-bond fund for the first time, it has a short-term junk-bond fund, too.In trying to shed its old image of a hibernating lion waiting for a bear market, Dreyfus is acting "like a second-generation ferocious young cub," said Avi Nachmany, senior vice president of Strategic Insights, a New York mutual fund consulting company.

Paris -- William Faulkner, nearly a half-century ago, speaking of the American South, said that the past ''is not even past.'' France has just demonstrated what that means. The Dreyfus case, which occurred exactly a century ago, is not ''past'' either.The French army's magazine just published an article on the Dreyfus case, written by the head of the army's historical section. Captain Alfred Dreyfus was a Jewish officer, graduate of the Ecole Polytechnique, the most highly regarded of France's ''grands ecoles.

WASHINGTON - Two aides to President Richard M. Nixon said yesterday that they doubted he ever took the drug Dilantin, which can induce mental confusion and nervousness, despite a new book that says he did. The aides, John H. Taylor, the director of the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, Calif., who knew Nixon from the mid-1980s until the former president's death in 1994, and Steve Bull, who was Nixon's personal aide from mid-1969 until late 1974, said they were skeptical of assertions in the book that Nixon used Dilantin given to him by Jack Dreyfus, the founder of the Dreyfus Fund and an avid promoter of the drug.

THE RANDAZZO and Dreyfus families would like to express our sincere gratitude to the many people of Maryland -- friends and strangers alike -- who cared enough to give their time and support in our period of grief. Your letters, cards and calls of sympathy, food, flowers and contributions to the Ronald Randazzo scholarship fund are greatly appreciated. There were so many people who contacted us, some without leaving their names or addresses, that we felt this letter would give us the opportunity to thank each and every well-wisher in a way you'd be sure to see.We would like to send a special "thank you" to all members of the armed forces, American Legion, Knights of Columbus, fire departments, county, state and harbor police who came to express their sorrow, and who provided for an honorable viewing, funeral and procession to the cemetery.

WASHINGTON - President Nixon medicated himself with a mood-altering prescription drug in the White House and, depressed by hostile public reaction to the bombing of Cambodia in 1970, he consulted a New York psychotherapist who considered him neurotic, according to a biography to be published tomorrow. Concern about Nixon's mental state in 1974 led the secretary of defense, James R. Schlesinger, to order all military units not to react to orders from "the White House" unless they were cleared with him or the secretary of state, writes Anthony Summers in "The Arrogance of Power: The Secret World of Richard Nixon."

Here at the editorial board of The Sun, we like to give Columbia a little good-natured ribbing from time to time. James Rouse's planned community has gotten enough critical accolades in the national press since its opening in 1967 - for its efforts at integration of races and classes, suburban amenities like pools and paths and even its stab at interdenominational harmony with shared "interfaith centers" - that we assumed it could handle a few laughs...

Update: "Veep" star Julia Louis-Dreyfus said she "loves Maryland" and was joking that the warehouse where the show is filmed is prison-like, not Columbia, in a Twitter post Thursday evening. " Just want 2 clarify.I love Maryland.Our crew is fab.The prison joke was a joke re: the warehouse.Truly sorry if anyone was offended," Louis-Dreyfus posted. A profile of the star in New York magazine and its pop-culture website Vulture dismissed Columbia as "home to one of the dreariest American landscapes imaginable: office parks, chain malls, and a cluster of Northeast-corridor warehouses for Sears and the like.

On Wednesday, HBO renewed the Baltimore-made sitcom "VEEP" for a third season. That means the series, which stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Vice President Selina Meyer, will be producing another 10 episodes in the Baltimore area next year. That's good news for the local economy. During its first season, which consisted of eight episodes, "VEEP" hired 978 Marylanders for cast and crew and did business with more than 1,100 Maryland vendors, according to the Maryland Film Office. Here's the release from the premium cable channel: HBO has renewed the comedy series VEEP for a ten-episode third season, scheduled for 2014.

"Deep" and "sitcom" are not words often used in the same sentence. But a visit to the "VEEP" soundstage in Columbia gave a glimpse of the larger cultural power of this savvy satire from HBO, returning for its second season Sunday night. I also came away dazzled by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who last year won an Emmy as best comedic actress for her portrayal of Vice President Selina Meyer. "VEEP" drills as far down into the state of the national psyche as any TV comedy has in the past 30 years.

April is a fine time to be a Chicago Cubs fan. In some seasons, the team will win a bunch of early games and jump out to first place. But a strong start can be misleading. If you look only at the win-loss record without watching most of the games, you're not seeing the whole story. You can miss the fact that the hot new prospect at third has more errors than hits, or delude yourself into thinking that the league's sluggers won't expose the fact that the team's pitching staff goes only two deep.

The Germans are anxious about neo-Nazis. The English are troubled by historians who say the Holocaust never happened. And the French, they're still upset about the Dreyfus Affair which came before the Nazis or the Holocaust.The report from Paris yesterday that the French army's chief historian had been fired for publicly doubting that Capt. Alfred Dreyfus was innocent of the espionage charges against him back in 1894 shows that history is never a dead letter, at least not in France.And ceremonials marking the centennial of the Dreyfus Affair this year are certain to be tinged with some of the bitterness and anger that infused the case originally and tore French society apart.

If you like Julia Louis-Dreyfus, you do not want to miss "Picture Paris," a quirky 30-minute film playing throughout the month on HBO. The film about a middle-aged couple trying to navigate the life passage they face as their last child leaves for college is written and directed by Brad Hall, husband of Louis-Dreyfus. She is in virtually every frame and appears to be having loads of fun playing a woman who becomes obsessed with all things French. At 30 minutes, don't expect a big film.
