In the commentary track included on the DVD, Sorkin and Thomas Schlamme
reveal that Bradley Whitford
's scenes in the pilot were shot while he was still finishing up work on the final season of The West Wing
(1999) (hence his absence in two of the final three episodes of "The West Wing"). Schlamme also says that he, Whitford and other casting staff made conscious, deliberate effort to help Whitford create an entirely new character and 'check' himself from employing as few of the mannerisms as possible on which he relied in the portrayal of his longtime "The West Wing" character Josh Lyman.
