Womack!

Filed under: Journal — Milind Kulkarni @ 4:07 pm

John Spencer, who played Leo McGarry on the West Wing, died yesterday. The first 3 or so seasons of the West Wing, in my opinion, were the best television I have ever seen, and John Spencer’s character was a big part of that.

I don’t know what’s weirder: the fact that when I saw that John Spencer died, that my first thoughts were about the character he played, or the fact that I grew so attached to the characters of the West Wing that I’m more upset about this than any other recent celebrity passing.

Rather than cleaning my room today, I’m going to go back through seasons 1 and 2 and watch some of John Spencer’s greatest hits.

(also, he played Womack in “The Rock,” hence the title of the post. Read in a Sean Connery accent for full effect)
