‘The West Wing’ Cast Reunites To Encourage People To Vote

The cast of the highly beloved political drama, ‘The West Wing,’ including Thomas Schlamme, Sheen, Dulé Hill, Allison Janney, Janel Moloney, Richard Schiff, Bradley Whitford, Marlee Matlin, and Mary McCormack convened on a lively Zoom call within Entertainment Weekly event, to inspire people to vote in the upcoming election.

After recalling the old days, Dulé Hill, representing ‘Charlie Young’ in the series, started a discussion about current events and said regarding the 2020 election:

“Our nation is about the citizens who actually roll up their sleeves and get involved, and one of the ways that were important on the show and important to us in real life is voting. I think that has resonated with people over the years. And I’m honored to be a part of this campaign to just inspire people to vote. Because if we take our eyes off the prize, the prize will be lost. We have to stay engaged if we want to see ourselves reflected in our country.”

The cast gathered to promote the upcoming ‘West Wing’ special, which benefits Michelle Obama’s nonprofit organization, ‘When We All Vote.’

The creator of the series, Aaron Sorkin continued:

 “This is the first time we’ve done this in 20 years. Never before have we gathered the cast onto logo in front of Snuffy Walden’s music and done something like The West Wing… I don’t think anybody would argue that right now if you have any capital at all, spend it.”

Then actor Rob Lowe, portraying ‘Sam Seaborn,’ the Deputy Communications Director, added to urge people to vote:

“If you’re not going to vote, then you don’t have a dog in the fight and you shouldn’t complain. Empowering people to vote, making it easier for people to vote, is a total no brainer. I’ve been working on it for many years and it feels like it becomes more important with each passing election cycle.”

Later, Joshua Malina, who known for his role as ‘Will Bailey’ said during the conversation:

“We are a part of a Republic and our chance to really have our voices heard in addition to expressing our opinions with other people and writing to our representatives is by voting for our representatives. It’s just such a special privilege and right that we have, to not use it is a terrible shame. We know there are places in the world where people do not have a voice. And so I think if you have one, you must use it.”
