The Good Old Days: EW's Cast Reunions with 'Gilmore Girls,' 'West Wing' & 'Alias'

The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, which is on stands now, has this great reunion package where the casts of favorite TV shows and movies (like Back to the Future) were brought together for new photos, interviews and the occasional video.

My favorite video – unavailable for embedding on blogs – was the Jennifer Garner/Victor Garber Alias reunion video where Garner and Garber (sounds like the name of a law firm) sadly, batted down any talk of an Alias movie (Garber said everyone’s too old) while they fondly remembered the hellish long days of filming the pilot episode. Garber, who officiated Garner's wedding to Ben Affleck, said he stays at Garner's house whenever he's filming in Los Angeles. They're so cute together.

Meanwhile, Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel from the Gilmore Girls also addressed the rumor of a Gilmore Girls film and reminisced about the season four episode "The Festival of Living Art" where they both posed on stage as famous works of art.

My other favorite EW reunion was seeing many of the castmates from The West Wing talk about what the show meant to them. I didn’t realize that Elisabeth Moss -- who played Zoey Bartlet and is now Peggy Olson on Mad Men -- was 17 when she started working on the show. And sometimes I forget that Kathryn Joosten was Mrs. Landingham before she was Karen McCluskey on Desperate Housewives.
