Question: What's the scoop on ...

Question: What's the scoop on John Spencer on The West Wing? Is he off the show for good? — Mary Ausiello: Despite his character's heart attack last week, Spencer — and Leo — are not going anywhere. At least that's what the actor told TV Guide's Mary Murphy last week. "I am not leaving," he said. "My phone has been ringing off the hook all week. People are asking me, 'Is Leo going to die? Are you leaving the show?' I have even gotten a few job offers." Spencer added that Leo will be around for the entire season — although it may be a while before he sees the inside of the Oval Office again. "We are shooting Episode 12 and Leo is still in the hospital." I smell a Scrubs crossover.
