The show reunites Whitford with Elisabeth Moss, who was a teenager when she played Zoey Bartlet, one of the daughters of President Josiah Bartlet (Martin Sheen) in "The West Wing."
Says Whitford, "I can't say enough about Lizzy Moss. She is amazing. She does everything. I've never seen an actor who is so totally the creative foundation of a show. She's heading up 'Sophie's Choice: The TV Show,' and she's incredible."
Discussing Moss leads to the subject of a possible "West Wing" reunion.
Whitford smiles. Although he felt the cast would be on board, he said it would be dependent on the show's creator, Aaron Sorkin, who he speculated may not be interested in pursuing the project at this time.
Whitford's fine with it: "There is so much else going on. I just feel so lucky."
