"Studio 7 on the Sunset Strip" Casting Information/Rob Lowe "West Wing" Return

From TV Guide:

Question: Any news on who's in talks to star in Aaron Sorkin's new NBC show? Someone must be talking. — Max

Ausiello: Someone is talking, and luckily to me. Sources confirm that Sorkin has approached — brace yourselves for some serious scoopage — former Friend Matthew Perry to headline Studio 7 on the Sunset Strip, which revolves around the behind-the-scenes goings-on at a Saturday Night Live-type sketch show. I'm also hearing that Sorkin has put feelers out to a big-name female to play the show's co-lead. (Hint: She shares the same first name as a legendary Melrose Place vixen, and her last name rhymes with "heat.") (Comment from this editor: It is Amanda Peet.)

Ausiello: Rob Lowe's camp has been approached, but there's no deal yet."

Word from Rob's camp is that he will not return to "The West Wing". I don't know if John Spencer's death will change anything, but as of now, this is the official word from Rob.
