The video is filled with Easter eggs for die-hard viewers, including Josh and Donna’s witty banter, the beloved theme song, C.J. standing behind the press secretary podium and walk-and-talks. Sterling K. Brown also makes his debut as Leo McGarry, taking over for the late John Spencer, who died in December 2005 of a heart attack during production on season 7 of the show….
