Allison Janney Reprises 'West Wing' Role in White House Press Room (Video)
Allison Janney stands at the podium while surprising members of the press corps at the White House on Friday morning (April 29) in Washington, D.C.
The Emmy-winning actress played the role of White House press secretary C.J. Gregg on the long-running series The West Wing.
Allison made the appearance to make a call for attention on the opioid epidemic.
“This is a disease that can touch anybody and all of us can help reduce drug abuse through evidence-based treatment, prevention, and recovery,” Allison said. “Research shows it works. And courageous show it works every day.”
