"'The West Wing' Comes to Terms With the G.O.P."

New York Times
Starstruck fans of "The West Wing" could walk away with one thing Monday after spotting Martin Sheen at the show's shoot in San Pedro: President Bartlet gets his job back.
Sheen -- and cohorts Allison Janney as press secretary C.J. Cregg and Dule Hill as aide Charlie Young -- could be spotted here and there working in front of the cameras as "The West Wing" crew filmed an episode in the community's downtown.
The old buildings and a parking lot on Seventh Street between Centre and Palos Verdes streets served as a double for an Oklahoma town devastated by a tornado. Buildings were ravaged, windows were shattered, brick walls lay in pieces, clothes hung from trees, and cars and trucks rested on their sides and roofs. And there was President Bartlet surveying the damage in his casual jacket and pants.
About a dozen people stood on Centre Street on Monday afternoon, straining their eyes to see the actors, kept away from the set by security guards who became upset if anyone took photographs.
Cries of "Rolling!" and "Action!" incited Janney and other actors in business suits to walk along Seventh Street in front of the presidential limo parked amid the debris. A wind machine blowing from across the street tousled their hair.
Hill occasionally walked back and forth talking on a cellular telephone -- not for the camera.
A number of police officers watched, but it wasn't clear which ones were real and which were actors. The ones wearing state trooper hats definitely were actors playing Oklahoma officers because no LAPD officer would ever don one of them.
The tornado show has not been given an official air date, the spokeswoman said. Although some onlookers said they heard shooting would continue for a couple more days, the publicist said she believed it was to finish up Monday night.

On Wednesday, Nov. 5, at 9 p.m. EST, NBC's Emmy award-winning series, "The West Wing" will air an episode titled "Disaster Relief" that will depict American Red Cross assistance in the aftermath of an Oklahoma tornado.
When the producers and writers created a realistic tornado relief depiction for the shoot in late September, they consulted with the American Red Cross. In light of what has happened since the Red Cross and the show worked together, "The West Wing" offered to assist the organization with its disaster relief efforts. That has resulted in the taping of a television public service announcement featuring Martin Sheen (President Josiah Bartlet), Richard Schiff (Toby Ziegler) and Dule Hill (Charlie Young) appealing for all Americans to support the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund set to air following Wednesday night's broadcast.
