Bartlet 2012: Your Reunion Video From The Cast of The West Wing
If the thought of another election cycle filled with vicious attack ads, conspiracy theories and more about the candidates’ past treatment of canines than you ever wanted to hear is getting you down, you can now take comfort in the nostalgia of a presidency gone by: a fictional one.
The cast of The West Wing have reunited in a new video up at Funny Or Die, and they’re doing what they do best: walking and talking, in hallways. President Josiah Bartlet (Martin Sheen) is back, as is his Press Secretary, C.J. Cregg, codename “Flamingo” (Allison Janney). Rounding out the reunion are Dulé Hill, Joshua Malina, William Duffy and Melissa Fitzgerald, all doing the usual hallway rounds to raise awareness about Every Body Walk, an initiative to encourage Americans to walk at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week. You heard C.J. Cregg, now get off your laptops and get moving.
Included in the video are a couple of good quips, including one making fun of Segway users, a classic thoughtful Bartlet ramble from Sheen and Sheen putting on a sweatband with what looks like a lot of effort. Although the video is for a great cause, it does have one minor flaw in its lack of Bradley Whitford. No Josh Lyman? Really?
Watch after the jump.
