Transcript for Bradley Whitford hints at 'West Wing' reboot
Year back with Bradley Whitford. He has a new one called "Valley of the boom." Welcome back to "Gma." It's great to be here. Tell us about this "Valley of the boom." It's an innovative thing, part documentary, part scripted. Yeah, it's on nat geo and extraordinarily fun kind of rollicking -- the origins -- The digital world. The digital world we live in. The world that has rearranged the way our neurons fire. Changing our brain, it's true. Unfortunately. You play the CEO of netscape. I go the to confess. I don't even remember what netscape did. James Barksdale. He was a wonderful guy -- is a wonderful guy. He was kind of the adult in the room over at netscape which was jockeying with Microsoft to dominate in the browser wars and it's that crazy kind of -- and it's so recent, but people have forgotten we didn't always live in -- it does appear to me like the whole cell phone internet thing is -- It's going to catch on. It might. Let's take a look at a clip. I guess you've heard there is a big problem here and it really hasn't been getting any better. Mike has been undercutting my methodologies in the sales force. Yeah, that's a bunch of . We're going to get together tomorrow same time and if you two still aren't getting along I'll flip a coin, now, heads, I fire Todd. Tails, I fire Mike. Sound good? Yeah. Cool. All right. Good talk. Sflur the adult in the room. You and I remember the preiphone, getting a blackberry, it was a big deal. Blackberry on "West wing" we were so excited because we all got these little blackberries to run around with which now are, you know, as archaic. In museums. Yeah. Is it true, I heard your kids say you're a hypocrite about technology. I'm always yelling at the kids to get off their phones and they're always pointing out the fact that I'm screaming at them with a phone in my hand so, yeah. It's pretty universal right now. You just mentioned "West wing." I've been reading all these stories about a possible comeback. You guys might be coming back? Happy about that. Help the cause. Here I am on television saying you didn't hear it from me. No, there's a lot of chatter about it. It all depends in my book on Aaron Sorkin -- The writer/creator. The writer/creator, the mice stow, whatever -- I would do, you know, lawn work for Aaron, so if that were to come together, it would be interesting. If and we would all be happy about it. Thanks for coming in. Nice to see you again. "Valley of the boom" premieres this Sunday on nat geo.
