Last night I went along to BAFTA for their Life in Pictures event with Allison Janney.
Having already scored Golden Globe and SAG nominations for her work in I Tonya, Janney charmed the members of BAFTA with stories from her career.
The event also included questions from the audience, which is when I told her my suggestion for the plot of The West Wing reboot/revival.
I told her as much as the idea of Sterling K Brown playing the President sounds good, personally I would like to see CJ Cregg sitting in the Oval Office.
The rest of the audience agreed with me as my suggestion got a big round of applause.
”You’re very sweet for suggesting that,” said Janney.
”I don’t know if Aaron (Sorkin) has thought about that. I’d definitely be interested in talking to him about it.”
Which sounds positive!
Asked if she thought CJ would be interested in being the President, Janney responded, “Oh definitely!”
The CJ Cregg for President campaign starts here!
