The West Wing Cast Reunites For Voting Issue Video
 
A large chunk of The West Wing cast reunited for a special video addressing the important issue of nonpartisan candidates as well as endorsing Mary McCormack's sister, Bridget Mary McCormack, for Michigan's state supreme court, according to CNN:

Quote:

Hoping to boost November turnout for candidate McCormack and to drive general nonpartisan ballot voting awareness, the "West Wing" star and her former cast mates shot two versions of the four minute video which taps into several quintessential moments from the hit show. One version focuses strictly on promoting nonpartisan ballot awareness and the other also advocates for McCormack.
Returning to play their old characters are Mary McCormack, Joshua Malina, Janel Moloney, Allison Janney, Bradley Whitford, Richard Schiff, Melissa Fitzgerald, Lily Tomlin, and, of course, Martin Sheen.

I think it says about the cast of this show, that they are all still friends and willing to do something like this for her sister.

Some of the cast also united for this video as well.

This makes no sense. Kate's the Deputy NSA, why would she be involved in a meeting on non-partisan voting? And I'm assuming that this takes place in during the first half of season 6 because CJ is Chief of Staff and Josh and Donna are still working in the White House, so that would make Will the VP's Chief of Staff, so why would he be involved?

2/10, terrible continuity, would not bang.

Part of me is happy it ended after 7 years, whilst it was stillfairly good, but to parapharse from the show, "Four more years" where we could see the Santos administration.

You could say that about parts of the show itself.

Just because the show frequently misplaced major characters and storylines, and even an entire year, doesn't excuse this short web clip that's not an official part of the show from screwing up. If Bridget Mary McCormack can't appreciate the differences between the staff and their duties in the White House, how can the public trust her as a judge? :p

It's just a shame that they've never released TWW on BR.

I miss The West Wing, their as not enough political dramas, Whitford has aged badly.

Still Good to see so much of the cast back.

This is sadly true, but his appearance is still an improvement on that awkward moustache period.
