Things have only gotten more interesting from there.

Josh Malina, who played deputy White House communications director Will Bailey on the show, tweeted a response to Brown from Sorkin, who does not use Twitter and generally loathes the internet:

With NBC and Brown interested, Sorkin is the only one holding the reboot back. He told the Hollywood Reporter that he’s struggled to envision how he’d bring back some of the show’s beloved original cast members, like Allison Janney, who played Bartlet’s longtime press secretary C.J. Cregg, or Bradley Whitford, who played deputy chief of staff Josh Lyman.

The series was something of a liberal fantasy when it originally aired, presenting an ideal Democratic administration in the midst of George W. Bush’s tenure as president. It was popular then, and would perhaps be even popular now, set against the backdrop of Donald Trump’s presidency.

For his part, Sorkin said that any potential reboot would have nothing to do with Trump. “Trump is exactly what he looks like: a really dumb guy with an observable psychiatric disorder,” the screenwriter told the Hollywood Reporter. So it doesn’t sound like Trump will get any cameos.

If the reboot materializes, it’d be the second time recently that social media has helped put together a Hollywood dream project. In May, Netflix acquired the rights to turn a Tumblr meme of singer Rihanna and actress Lupita Nyong’o into an actual movie, directed by Ava DuVernay.
