Mom Stages West Wing Reunion, Taps Richard Schiff for May Sweeps Stint

Mom Stages West Wing Reunion

I see an extended walk-and-talk sequence in Mom‘s not-too-distant future.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the CBS comedy is engineering a West Wing reunion this spring, tapping Richard Schiff to guest-star opposite his former Bartlet administration colleague Allison Janney.

Schiff will play a “co-worker” of Janney’s Bonnie in a May episode. (She apparently fantasizes about being employed as something other than a building super, and Schiff’s character appears in said daydream.)

This marks Schiff’s second West Wing reunion this year. In January, he turned up in an episode of Rob Lowe’s rookie Fox comedy The Grinder.

Schiff’s other recent TV credits include arcs on House of Lies, The Affair and Manhattan.
