The "West Wing" movie has been solved. Last month cast member Joshua Malina tweeted photos of one-time series actors together on set, sparking speculation about a feature film.
It's actually a video for the campaign of Michigan Supreme Court candidate Bridget McCormack, a Democrat, who is sister of ex-"West Wing" cast member Mary McCormack. Martin Sheen, Lily Tomlin and several other series regulars also talk up the portion of the ballot where officially nonpartisan judicial races are listed.
The actors look remarkably similar to their roles a decade ago. Sheen, aka President Josiah Bartlet, does sport more silver hair than his fictional days in the Oval Office. But only Whitford, who played Deputy White House Chief of Staff Josh Lyman for most of the show's run, seems to have aged noticeably.
"West Wing" creator Aaron Sorkin was aware of the production, but not involved, says an aide for Bridget McCormack, according to the Detroit Free Press.
oh definitely!I follow whatever alec baldwin says ever since that incident when he called his own daughter a "disgusting little fat pig" and other rageful outbursts in public. he is just incredible.Celebrities are some of the smartest people in the democrat party.
Do they affect mine? No. Do they affect a good percentage of the population? Anyone who says no, is someone who insists on a stance despite every bit of evidence showing otherwise. Yes, they do which is why politicians use them. The country is obsessed with Celebrities, hence there being news sections about them, web sites, blogs, magazines, TV shows, etc...
Normally, I'd say that celebrity endorsements have little, if any, meaning or substance. But this would be the case that would be the exception.'The West Wing' was one of the greatest television productions ever to grace our television sets. It inspired the questioning, at least as a mainstream view, of why the government is so useless when it 'could' work so well.
Also, I'd suggest that this wasn't your average celebrity bump. It was an attempt to get people to pay attention to parts of their ballot that they might just gloss over. It raised a valid point and used recognizable faces to get the point across. I say well done.
Plus, as a 'West Wing' buff, I was ecstatic to see the cast back together. This happens much too little these days.
