Bradley Whitford to Reunite With West Wing Co-Star Allison Janney on Mom

Two key pieces of the Bartlet administration are teaming up again.

Bradley Whitford is set to guest star on CBS’ Mom, reuniting him with The West Wing co-star Allison Janney. According to Entertainment Weekly, Whitford will play an old friend of Adam (William Fichtner), the current boyfriend of Janney’s character Bonnie. The old friend is a Hollywood director with a fondness for the sauce — which might not sit well with recovering alcoholics Bonnie and Christy (Anna Faris).

The West Wing Bradley Whitford Allison Janney Whitford and Janney, of course, spent seven seasons together on NBC’s Emmy-winning political drama The West Wing. He played deputy chief of staff Josh Lyman; she played press secretary C.J. Cregg. And the two former co-stars also reunited last month, along with four other West Wing cast members, to campaign for real-life presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the battleground state of Ohio.

Mom returns for a fourth season on CBS on Oct. 27 at 9/8c; Whitford’s episode will air in January.

    He’s aging well. I hope when I go gray, I go full silver fox like him or John Slattery.

      Just do what he did, keep coloring it until every hair is white. Then stop coloring it and stay out of the public eye until all the dye is gone.

    Sad that there is no mention that William Fichtner also guest starred on West Wing in Season 5. This won’t be the first reunion.

    • I just have to say ... says:

      Fitchner guest-starred in ONE episode of “The West Wing” – 5.17 “The Supremes” – and if memory serves, he & Janney didn’t have any scenes together. With that, I would hardly call it a ‘West Wing Reunion’ to have him on “Mom”.
      .
      BTW, I think Fitchner is a great addition to “Mom”.

    Now if only they would actually bring back the West Wing itself… that would be one revival definitely worthy of the effort.
