A number of players in the pretend politics of “The West Wing” are getting involved in the real politics of the 2016 presidential election.
Politico reports that former cast members on the long-running NBC drama series will be stumping over the weekend in Ohio in support of Hillary Clinton.
“Richard Schiff (Toby Ziegler), Allison Janney (C.J. Cregg), Bradley Whitford (Josh Lyman), Dule Hill (Charlie Young), Joshua Malina (Will Bailey) and Mary McCormack (Kate Harper) will participate. The cast reunion and campaign events will include appearances in Cleveland, Sandusky, Toledo, Columbus and elsewhere,” the website reports.
Created by Aaron Sorkin, “The West Wing” wrapped in 2006 after seven seasons and 26 Primetime Emmys. The series featured fictional President Josiah Bartlet, a Democrat, played by Martin Sheen.
