Update, 10:25: There is no “West Wing” movie. Josh Malina is just an asshole who is toying with my heart. The cast reunited to film a PSA, possibly for Funny Or Die. So disappointed. [SPI]
Missing C.J. Cregg in your life? Me, too. Good to know then, that over the weekend, “West Wing” actor Josh Malina tweeted a pic of what appears to be Allison Janney (C.J.) and Bradley Whitford (Josh) working on a scene with the caption, “I can’t say what super-secret set I’m on, but it rhymes with Bwest Bwing Bmovie.” Another pic showed Richard Schiff (Toby) hustling around all-Toby-ishly and another pic appears to be Whitford getting a hug with the caption “This time it’s for real, people.”
I can sum up my reaction in one word: Yiiiiiiiiiii! I hope Malina does not get in trouble for his super-secret tweets. Creator Aaron Sorkin seems like he gives hard spankings. [Img.ly]

Maybe it just gave me my political junkie fix or maybe I finally felt like I found a place where people talked faster than me.

The flick will be based on The Politician by Andrew Young, an insider’s account of Edwards’ run for the White House and the subsequent scandal that basically ruined his career. Keep reading »
