Stars of popular political TV series â€œThe West Wingâ€ reunited this week to film a campaign ad for Bridget Mary McCormack, a candidate for Michiganâ€™s Supreme Court and the sister of actress Mary McCormack.
â€œThereâ€™s a crisis,â€ declares Mary McCormack, who played deputy national security adviser Kate Harper in later seasons of the show. â€œItâ€™s the voting thing.â€
â€œPeople walk into the voting booth, they check the straight party ticket box and they think that they have voted for everything,â€ explains Bradley Whitford, who played deputy chief of staff Josh Lyman on the show. â€œBut they havenâ€™t. They still have to vote for the non-partisan part of the ballot.â€
Michigan includes the Supreme Court candidates in the nonpartisan part of their ballots, the characters explain in the video. They then highlight McCormackâ€™s record of â€œfighting for justice for ordinary people, for families with sick kids, for victims of domestic violence.â€
The four-minute Web video also features actors Allison Janney, Janel Moloney, Richard Schiff, Joshua Malina, Lily Tomlin and Martin Sheen, who played President Bartlett on the show.
It is not the first time the cast has reunited to film a video tweaking real-life politics.In May, part of the cast reunited to discuss gas prices and fitness initiatives. Like that video, the pro-McCormack one features the â€œwalk and talkâ€ scene-setting that the Aaron Sorkin TV series was known for.
