Veteran actor Richard Schiff recently revealed that he has talked to “The West Wing” show creator Aaron Sorkin recently about bringing the popular political drama back to television.
Emmy winner Schiff played Toby Ziegler on the series and speaking on the Popcorn Talk Network’s I Could Never Be podcast this week, he says: “Aaron has said he wanted it to happen. [He] might go with a new administration, in which case, you know, some of us might show up as consultants…it makes no sense, maybe one or two of us to be in the White House.”
He goes on to explain he pitched his own take to Sorkin which would take the action outside the White House as he feels that’s been done to death, rather it should focus on where a lot of politics really happens – namely at the state level.
Early last year Sorkin revealed that NBC expressed its interest to Sorkin in doing a limited series revival and that he could do it with either the same or a different cast. At the time he said: “if I can come up with an idea that works, then yeah.”
