Now fans can eagerly look forward to a mini-West Wing reunion backstage at the Barrymore Theatre sometime this spring. In the meantime, Janney’s hoping to reunite with former co-star (and current Scandal
star) Josh Malina, who co-hosts a weekly discussion about Aaron Sorkin’s NBC drama
with Hrishikesh Hirway on The West Wing Weekly podcast
The show has quickly become a hit among pop culture fanatics and those involved in the TV series. Currently just over halfway through season two of The West Wing
, the trip down memory lane revisits each episode in the order they originally aired. And in addition to Malina, who played White House communications director Will Bailey, the podcast regularly features former co-stars -- Bradley Whitford, Richard Schiff, Rob Lowe
and Janel Maloney have all called in -- and Sorkin himself. But sadly, Janney, who earned four Emmys for her role as press secretary C.J. Cregg, has not yet appeared. While there are seven seasons to cover in this extensive rewatch of the series, the actress has certainly been missed in early discussions of the show.

“And please, if you’re putting that in there, tell him how much we’ve been trying to get a moment for us to do it,” Janney continues. So there you go, Malina and fans alike: Janney has plans to appear. It’s just a matter of when.
is one of my favorite things I’ve ever done,” Janney added. “I love everyone in it still and we’re all very much still in each other’s lives whenever we can be.”
