A West Wing reunion of sorts

How did I not hear about this until now?

Joshua Malina is joining the cast of In Plain Sight for Season 2.

You can read the full press release at The Futon Critic

I watched In Plain Sight last season simply because I always try to support West Wing actors' other projects. For those of you who haven't seen it, it's alright.  Not the best show in the world (and definitely not The West Wing), but it's watchable.  I'm excited to see Mary McCormack and Joshua Malina back together.  I liked their awkward chemistry during the last season of WW...nerds in love are always adorable.

Hmmm. I'm surprised he never posted it on Facebook. He alerted us to his appearance on Grey's and CSI.

Yay! for him getting more work... and with Mary. I loved him in season 7 but he'll always be Jeremy on SN to me.

Maybe he's waiting until it gets closer to the new season? He's not my "friend" or whatever on Facebook, so I don't know for sure. I heard he posts sometimes on Aaron's Facebook Movie group. I joined that group when Aaron first started it, but I always forget to check it...I should probably stop by for a visit.

I loved Joshua Malina on SN, too. Jeremy was a great character.

I enjoyed In Plain Sight overall. Initially, I was bored anytime the focus shifted away from Mary and Marshall, but I thought the season finished really strongly. That finale was outstanding.

Adding JoMa to the mix is more than fine by me. Thanks for sharing the news, Piney!

I am not a big fan of Lesley Ann Warren, so I didn't really like the family scenes at first either, but they grew on me after a while. The actress who plays Mary's sister (her name escapes me at the moment) is actually quite good. I liked the finale too, and I'm looking forward to next season.

Nichole Hiltz. Yes, she is. :-) She caught my eye in a small role on "The Riches," which I really enjoyed. *points to Eddie Izzard icon*

They set us up, if you think about it: At first glance, Brandi's this spoiled brat leeching off her sister. (Which kinda describes the mom, too.) But they gave her depth, and made us actually like her.

I've never been a big Lesley Ann Warren fan, either. :-)

Yes! That's her! She had a recurring role on Bones this season and was good in it as well.
