    That's sad but it's more coincidental than irony. It would be ironic if he was a recovering alcoholic and was run over by a beer truck.

    As a huuuuuuuge fan of "West Wing", I was deeply saddened to hear this. What will they do with the plot, since Spencer's character is the candidate for Vice President for the Democratic ticket?

    That is very sad.:(

    I enjoyed John Spencer/Leo McGarry on the West Wing (such a good show btw).

    Quite odd! :confused: :eek:

    I was very saddened to hear this, John Spencer is such a great actor. He will be missed!

    Nah, I think he's just commenting on how much stronger McGarry's personality is compared to Drew Card. The guy's supposed to be a pushover.

    Never watched West Wing, but he was good in LA Law.

    I was surprised to hear this. Sad, he wasn't very old.

    I'm curious how they'll write this into the WW script since he is a VP candidate in this season's election year. I wonder how many episodes he's taped already that have yet to air? Will they write this into the story before or after the election ends?

    I am not a big fan of The West Wing, but when I did watch it, John Spencer (not Martin Sheen) was the actor I always thought was most interesting to watch. Spencer made it look so natural and effortless. It's a shame he's gone.
