“West Wing” POTUS Martin Sheen let it slip on an upcoming episode of BBC America’s “The Graham Norton Show” that he’s backing Barack Obama.
Here’s the exchange, to be shown on May 3:
Martin Sheen: “It’s unfortunate that they’re beating each other up. I haven’t made a proper claim, maybe I should do it here, I’m an Obama supporter. But you mustn’t reveal it yet, Bill Clinton loved the West Wing and he still calls me his President, so I have to be careful for just a while longer.”
Guest comedian Ed Byrne: “I’m afraid that you’ve done it.”
Martin Sheen: “I’ve done it. I still think the Democrats will win. No matter which one of them comes in, the country’s ready for a change, we’ve had it. It’s just been a disaster.”
Graham Norton: “Even from a distance, we’ve noticed.”
Sheen endorsed Bill Richardson before he dropped out of the race.
