What’s next? A dinner with Aaron Sorkin and some of the main cast of “The West Wing.”
Bradley Whitford (Josh Lyman), Janel Moloney (Donna Moss) and Josh Malina (Will Bailey) were having dinner with friends on Wednesday night, including “West Wing” creator Sorkin.
“Talking reboot,” Malina teased fans with a photo of the former Bartlet Administration members.
In 2017, NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt told Deadline he kept asking Sorkin if he wanted to reboot the series, to which Sorkin replied, “You know I love that show and some day I’d love to revisit it, but it’s not going to happen right now.”
However, later that year, Sorkin told Hollywood Reporter he envisioned Sterling K. Brown as president in a “West Wing” reboot.
Sorkin left the political TV drama 15 years ago at the end of the fourth season. Tim Matheson, who played Vice President Hoynes, told Page Six earlier this year, “I also felt that [Sorkin and producer Thomas Schlamme] were the heart of the show. I liked the show after they left. I went back and did a few episodes here and there, but it wasn’t the same.”
Sorkin has also said he never watched the show after he left.
“It felt like I was watching someone make out with my wife,” he said.
