    Yeah I love you Mary McCormick!!! So good to see you again on tv!!! Can’t wait to see ur role.

  2. J says:

    YES. Please keep using the “West Wing” talent pool. It’s always creepy in just the right ways when someone from a show with the most optimistic view of government turns up on a show so horrifyingly pessimistic about government.

    Please book Sanaa Lathan for a guest role, I don’t see enough of this incredible talented actress.

  4. Rob says:

    Please please let there be some Mary McCormack and Josh Malina action. We need it.

    Mary McCormack is back in the political game. Great to see a mini-West Wing reunion between her and Joshua Malina.

    What I love about this is that Mary McCormack is one of those really funny broads in real life who has been in mostly dramatic roles. So excited to see how this character fitz (pun intended) into the storyline.

    I hope this means that OPA is back to fixing other people problems not doing what the hell it is they were doing last season.
