Cast of The West Wing Reunites for Campaign Video

How's this for a political ad?

Six years after The West Wing went off the air, several castmembers from the series have reunited to recreate their roles for a campaign spot for, no, not Barack Obama or Mitt Romney, but rather a Michigan Supreme Court candidate in a nonpartisan race.

Wait, what?

Yep. State judicial candidate Bridget McCormack managed to wrangle the likes of Martin Sheen, Allison Janney, Bradley Whitford and several others to shoot a video that parodies their political drama.

So, how did McCormack pull it off?

Well, with a little help from her sister, Mary McCormack, who played security advisor Kate Harper on the program and who also appears in the mini-movie, which was designed to urge people to vote in nonpartisan Supreme Court elections.

Hey, whatever gets these beloved characters—along with an Apocalypse Now joke—in the same room works for us!

It seems Hollywood has always had its hand in politics
