While it may not be the full-fledged reunion many fans were hoping for, several members of The West Wing reunited for a special video to promote the White House's second annual "Big Block of Cheese Day." For those not familiar with The West Wing, John Spencer's Leo McGarry often spoke about the actual White House tradition, which started in the year 1837 when President Andrew Jackson brought a 1,400-pound block of cheese into the main foyer at the White House, inviting thousands of citizens to carve off slabs of cheddar cheese and discuss the issues of the day. This actual tradition was revived last year by President Barack Obama, which will continue this year with the 2nd Annual Big Block of Cheese Day on January 21.
The West Wing cast members such as Martin Sheen, Allison Janney, Bradley Whitford, Richard Schiff, Dulé Hill, Joshua Malina, Mary McCormack are seen on a conference call with White House press secretary Josh Earnest, who adds that White House senior officials will be online answering questions from "anyone who wants to ask," with fans encouraged to use the official hashtag #AskWH on the White House Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.
Check out the video below and you can also visit the White House Blog for more information about which White House officials will be answering questions from citizens throughout the day on Wednesday, January 21. This event comes just one day after the Barack Obama's State of the Union Address, which you can also watch live on the White House page on Tuesday, January 20 at 9 PM ET.
