Hopes dashed!

This morning actor Joshua Malina — known henceforth as He Who Crushes Dreams — hinted at big news.

I will tweet an update on The West Wing Movie some time in the next half hour!

But alas, the actor who played Will Bailey on “The West Wing” was just messing with the Twitterverse.

@JoshMalina how can you play me like that!?!

understandable but dissapointing RT @markknoller: Actor @JoshMalina tweets this morning that a West Wing movie is "not happening."

@JoshMalina That's sad:( A West Wing movie would be awesome.

Some are still holding on to the dream … at Malina’s expense.

@JoshMalina Maybe they're just not telling you.

@JoshMalina It is, they just didn't tell you that Will was executed for treason, which will be explained over a laugh track. #WestWingMovie
