105. Wilson White, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip
Chairman of Tunney Media Group was hilarious. But that could be cause Ed Asner is just that good.
104. General Nicholas Alexander, The West Wing
He became the new Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff after Fitzwallace stepped down. He was by far nothing like Fitz, but he stood is ground and battled with the President and Leo.
103. Ginger, The West Wing
Ginger is Bonnie. Bonnie is Ginger. Toby needed them both to keep him straight.
102. Bonnie, The West Wing
Bonnie is Ginger. Ginger is Bonnie. Toby needed them both to keep him straight.
101. Bob Mayer, The West Wing
While he was busy pushing Vinick to do what he had to do to win, I just wanted to give the guy a stapler!
100. Gina Toscano, The West Wing
Gina was Zoe’s body guard and all she had to do was keep her safe in season one with her mix of professionalism and passion, but then Rosslyn happened and she couldn’t ID the guy on the ground and she went to investigate crime scenes instead.
99. Abby Jacobs, Sports Night
Many Sorkin shows use the ‘talking to my therapist’ storyline to tell the story. Abby was a good one, she actually new long jump record holders. That’s impressive.
98. Sheila Brooks, The West Wing
She tried to get Vinick elected President, but when her ways weren’t working she offered herself to be replaced and she was!
97. Ryan Pierce, The West Wing
Frat boy with a mind – DANGEROUS!
96. Nina Howard, The Newsroom
Reporter turned gossip columnist who also broke the law.
95. Mike Casper, The West Wing
Agent Coulson was a member of the FBI before working from SHIELD. What? Oh, sorry. I thought they could be the same time line. My bad.
94. Andy Mackinaw, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip
Brought in to run the writer’s room after Ron and Ricky left. He tries to inspire and re-invigorate the staff. No easy task.
93. Kenny, The West Wing
To trust Joey Lucas was to trust Kenny. We did.
92. Dave (Director), Sports Night
A studio tech and director. He appeared in the background and a good guy.
91. Talmidge Cregg, The West Wing
CJ’s Dad. A former educator who was losing the thing most precious – his mind. Must be terrifying.
