Allison Janney is not confident the world will ever see a reboot of “The West Wing”.
Janney appeared on Tuesday’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Janney, 60, detailed the reasons a direct followup to “The West Wing” would be problematic.
“No, I don’t think it will happen, but it’s nice to think about,” Janney, who played C.J. Cregg, said. “I think everybody wants to think about it now because, you know, it was a Camelot administration on ‘The West Wing’. It was the way you hope that people in government [are].”
Janney said the decision is ultimately that of show creator Aaron Sorkin. Unfortunately, the actors are much older and it is no easy feat to round up an all-star cast like Janney, Martin Sheen, and Rob Lowe.
“Martin Sheen could maybe be, like, president of his retirement community or something,” Kimmel teased. “He’s not the president on the show anymore.”
“The West Wing” originally ran from 1999 to 2006.
