Channel 4 Clips in UK

A short clip of Martin Sheen talking about being a golf caddy is now online! This clip requires the Windows Media Player.

There is another clip promoting "West Wing" on More4. It was broadcast Tuesday night after "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart". It shows Richard Schiff and Allison Janney walking somewhere on the studio lot and pretending to do a runthrough of their promotion of More4 as in "I'm Allison Janney and I want to tell you about...." They make fun of the fact that More4 is British and Richard Schiff tries to pronounce it with a faux British accent. Allison Janney then mentions what's going to be on the channel: "They show movies like Fahrenheit 9/11, Capturing the Friedmans" and Richard Schiff is listening and saying uhuh, but he kind of perks up and goes Ah! when Allison Janney tells him that they're doing the new season of "West Wing".

The UK's Channel 4 is advertising its new sister channel More4 with special ads involving "West Wing" stars.

As posted by WildStah78 at Television Without Pity:
"Over here in the UK, Channel 4...has an ad campaign launching a new channel. One of the adverts (commercials) showed Allison Janney and Richard Schiff in what looked like backstage, playing foozball (how the hell do you spell that?) and Martin Sheen in between soundstages hitting a golfball saying "Now watch this shot" in a very George Bush Fahrenheit 9/11 kinda way! Very good and Martin cant be that good at golf!"

If any UK readers are able to put these clips online or know of a link to them, they are welcome to send them to me.
