PEOPLE YOU WOULD ASSUME GUEST STARRED ON "THE WEST WING," BUT NOPE

I double checked. NADA. Mary Kay Place almost snuck by me!
  1. William H. Macy
    Role that never was: Toby's old college roommate.
  2. David Straithen
    Role that never was: southern Democrat with an accent that Josh consistently makes fun of.
  3. Colm Meaney
    Role that never was: ex-boyfriend of Abbey who got better grades than Jeb at Notre Dame.
  4. Emilio Estevez
    Role that never was: someone who President Bartlett really hates, because it worked for Brad Pitt when he guest starred on "Friends."
  5. Dana Delany
    Role that never was: one of Zoey's college professors whose motives we're constantly unsure of.
  6. Ed Lauter
    Role that never was: NRA spokesperson who Leo ends up sucker punching.
  7. Tim Blake Nelson
    Role that never was: kept waiting in the Roosevelt room the entire episode.
  8. Jean Smart
    Role that never was: Republican senator and C.J.'s gym buddy.
