If they were ever going to relaunch The West Wing, Dule Hill is now over 35 (which means he can run for President) and President Santos’ second term would be over in January of 2015 (he took office in January 2007 in the series’ continuity). If Charlie Young was the President in a retooled series, his wife would be Zoe Bartlet, thus giving a major reason for Martin Sheen’s former President Bartlet to be involved in the show and Presidency. Josh Lyman would be the Vice President (following in the late Leo McGarry’s career trajectory of Chief of Staff to Vice Presidential Candidate). With the “trinity” of Young, Lyman and Bartlet you’d have the core cast right there, and a reason to bring every other series regular back.
Sorkin and NBC, call me! 😉
And c’mon son, you know James Roday has to be his Chief of Staff.
