Brown: Tommy (Schlamme) and Aaron (Sorkin) called me and they were like, ‘We were wondering if you would play the role of Leo.’ I’m like, ‘You know I’m 44-years-old.’ And they’re like, ‘Yeah, OK, no problem.’ And the fact that I was even asked was a tremendous offer. Like, honestly, that was my show, you know? It’s a perfect example of the kind of art where it doesn’t necessarily show a reflection of the way life as it is, but life as it could be, you know, an idealized version or something like it. And, it’s acting crushes that I’ve had for years. I’m now sharing a space with these people. It exceeded expectations because Martin Sheen is 80 years old. That old Jed Bartlett shows up and he is ice cold. He has the most lines in the episode by far and he’s talking about chess moves and people in India who introduced things and just tricky stuff and he was like (snaps his fingers three times.) I was like, ‘Oh, so this is what’s happening.’ And like everybody else saw and they’re like, ‘Yeah, we’re not going to let the president just blow us all away.’ So everybody started rehearsing their scenes by their trailers outside with their PPE on. I didn’t have much to do in the episode but I was like, ‘Can I just sit in the audience and watch?’ I was like a kid in a candy store.
