A Definitive Ranking of Every Character on ‘The West Wing’

5. Amy Gardner

Played By: Mary-Louise Parker
Number of Episodes: 23

Started out as a lobbyist for feminist groups; eventually served as a sometimes advisor to the Bartlet administration and later as the First Lady’s chief of staff. I tend to be very accommodating to other points of view, and I am hardly ever a “shipper” for the shows that I watch, but if you preferred Josh and Donna to Josh and Amy, you are wrong. (Unless your rationale is that Josh and Donna are both kinda sucky and deserve each other, in which case: I’ll allow it.) The simple truth of the matter is that Amy Gardner is not only a superior character to Donna, but she is much better suited to Josh. Their chemistry was off the charts, their political maneuverings gave fire to season three, and she gave as good as she got and pushed Josh to do the same. I pine for the apocryphal eighth season of The West Wing for many reasons, but none more than because Amy signed on to the Santos administration. – JR

Signature Episode: Season four’s “Privateers,” a.k.a. Amy’s first day on the job as Abbey Bartley’s chief of staff, during which, among other political maneuverings, she had to put up with this foolishness:

Mary to star in “The Slap”

Jul 26 • by Colleen • No CommentsNews

NBC has enlisted two acclaimed actors to star in its provocative upcoming miniseries The Slap. Mary-Louise Parker and Peter Sarsgaard will headline the complex family drama about what happens after a man slaps another couple’s misbehaving child. “The seemingly minor domestic dispute pulls the family apart, begins to expose long-held secrets and ignites a lawsuit that challenges the core American values of all who are pulled into it,” according to the show’s official description.
Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds) will play Anouk, a close friend of Hector’s who’s the head writer on a TV show and is now dating the younger leading man. Sarsgaard (The Killing) will play Hector, a husband and father who “loves his wife and family but shows signs of weakness when he finds himself succumbing to the advances of his wife’s teenaged receptionist during his own party.”
NBC has ordered eight episodes of the event series from writer Jon Robin Baitz (Brothers and Sisters) and director Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are All Right).
