    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:

    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.

    Me too. Watching this makes me want to splurge for that complete series boxed set.

    edit: "It's an apocalypse now?" :lol:

    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.

    I can't agree as that mustache period included the brilliantly underrated series "The Good Guys".

    Yeah, Bradley Whitford hasn't aged well, but I have to say Allison Janney still looks amazing!

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    handing out sweets helps too.

    Did Bradley get the moustache because he was in the Good Guys, or did he get the Good Guys because of the moustache?

    Hmmm... not sure. I'll call him and ask.

    Edited to add:

    Okay, I'm back. I tried asking him, but he kept going on and on about who I was and how I got his number. :devil:
