Reid Scott's romantic persona on HBO's critically acclaimed Veep is surrounded by politics, but when it comes to his real love life, he's apparently drama free.
The actor, 35, is engaged to longtime girlfriend Elspeth Keller, a source confirms to PEOPLE.
Going the opposite direction of his serial-dating TV character Dan Egan, Scott went the traditional route and "secretly flew to San Francisco to ask Elspeth's father for her hand in marriage," the source says.

For some reason I started Emmy night worrying that Hugh Bonneville of PBS Masterpiece's Downton Abbey would win best actor in a drama, or that there'd be a Downton sweep. He gives a perfectly lovely performance, but it's essentially like watching Piers Morgan mellowed by a life of having valets brush his evening jacket.
But Damian Lewis won for Homeland, allowing my head to clear and track what I thought the Emmys got right and got wrong.
Got right: Homeland, Showtime.
Mad Men and Breaking Bad both had tremendous seasons, but neither was as brilliantly focused right out of the gate as this new political thriller. It was fitting, too, that the acting awards went to both Lewis and Claire Danes: They're a sort of Janus head – two faces, terrorist and counter-terrorist, each collapsing under the pressure of a duty to protect (hers) and destroy (his).

If you ask why I am crying, it's because Madeleine Stowe, star of ABC's Revenge, is not among the Emmy nominees. In fact, I am crying just as she would: My eyes are ringed with big, ready-to-drop tears of wrath and sorrow.
Otherwise, the latest batch of nominees is pretty satisfying.
It's great to see Lena Dunham and her fantastic HBO comedy Girls up for best actress and show. (But nothing for the supporting cast?) Dunham, who plays a smart, funny, self-absorbed young writer, is running against her comic antithesis: Zooey Deschanel of FOX's New Girl, on which she plays (and plays very well) a cupcake.

I am trying to imagine a marble bust of Julia Louis-Dreyfus. This bust rests atop a marble pedestal, and the pedestal sits in a gleaming marble hall.
Can't do it. The hair is too chic, for one thing, and that's hard to sculpt. So, I'll spell it out: Veep, the new HBO comedy in which Louis-Dreyfus plays a vice president of very little brain, puts her firmly in the pantheon of TV's great comedic actresses.
Yes, yes, yes, Louis-Dreyfus already proved she was fantastic playing Seinfeld's Elaine, the woman who invented the urban sombrero. But that was an ensemble role. And she was lovely, relaxed and charming as a divorced mom on her mellow sitcom vehicle The New Adventures of Old Christine.
