What The West Wing Cast Is Doing Now

John Spencer (Leo McGarry)

Last, but certainly not least, on our list is John Spencer, another prolific screen legend of vast acclaim who won an Emmy in 2002 for his role as Jed Bartlet's Chief of Staff and best friend Leo McGarry on The West Wing. Unfortunately, the series would be his last acting credit as the actor passed away, due to a heart attack, in 2005, just four days shy of his 59th birthday. Spencer and his character were both immortalized in the Season 7 episode, "Requiem," which sees much of the entire cast reunite for McGarry's funeral.
