Trivia:
Aaron Sorkin told Entertainment Weekly that the first actor he and the producers wanted to play President Bartlet was Sidney Poitier. That idea was abandoned when Poitier's fee was, in Thomas Schlamme's words, "very high", and John Wells was able to ascertain that Poitier was not interested when his manager asked Wells to stop calling.See more »

Factual errors: At one point, National Security Advisor Nancy McNally makes a reference to "M2 Bradleys with 120 mm guns". In reality, M2 Bradleys are Infantry Fighting Vehicles and are armed with 25mm guns. This was most likely a mixup with the Main Battle Tank M1 Abrams, which is armed with a 120mm gun.See more »

Making real drama out of politics, 6 December 2004
Author: Remmy Wamweri (wamweri@gmail.com) from Oxford, England

So much political reporting seems to be an attempt to fake a drama out of little material. I missed the West Wing when it started, but am catching up now, and find that it turns the specifics of politics into gripping human drama with a fast pace.

The camera seems to move as quickly as the people, following one conversation, then picking up another as two corridors intersect, and going off after that conversation instead. It's a remarkably effective dramatic device, that helps generate a sense of many topics, issues and personalities all being constantly on the move in response to events.

The acting is uniformly good, and often not on screen, Martin Sheen's president remains a constant presence shaping every story.
