C.J. Gregg Conducts A Press Briefing At Actual White House

Allison Janney appeared in all 154 episode of the ‘West Wing,’ and she was nominated four times for a Golden Globe for her portrayal of C.J. Gregg. But, Friday was the first time she was the press secretary for real.

Janney is in town for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and took over the press briefing in comedic style to talk about more serious issues. According to Dylan Matthews at VOX, the actress brought light to the opioid issues; she lost her brother to suicide following a long struggle with drug addiction, and has teamed up with her Mom costar Anna Faris and Surgeon General Vivek Murthy for a PSA on the subject.

“This is a disease that can touch anybody, and all of us can help reduce drug abuse through evidence-based treatment, prevention, and recovery,” said Janney.

If you are a fan of the ‘West Wing’ the next one minute and two seconds will be quite enjoyable.
