Bon Jovi sings ‘Wing’

Singer will play himself on March 26 seg

Jon Bon Jovi has begun filming a guest shot for an upcoming episode of “The West Wing.”

Rocker and sometime thesp will play himself on the seg, throwing his support behind the fictional campaign of Sen. Matt Santos (Jimmy Smits). He’ll perform part of his song “Welcome to Wherever You Are” on the episode, set to air March 26 on NBC.

Seg has echoes of previous real-life presidential campaigns. Another New Jersey rocker, Bruce Springsteen, was vocal in his support of Sen. John Kerry during the 2004 election.

While Bon Jovi will be playing himself on “West Wing,” he’s also had several TV and feature turns in fictional roles, including in the recent horror pic “Cry Wolf.”
