Smits Keeps His Politics Under Wraps
Former LA LAW star JIMMY SMITS has made a vow to keep his mouth shut about his personal politics since landing a role on hit drama THE WEST WING.
Smits recently joined the show's cast as a Democratic presidential contender, and he's decided that, unlike series star MARTIN SHEEN, he'll now keep his political views under wraps.
He says, "It dilutes the message of the show if I start (sharing my political views). I've kinda made that promise to myself, which doesn't mean that I'm not very supportive of candidates on a financial level.
"I'm doing things to get the vote out, but I think if I start going out there, doing this party and that party now it's gonna kind of dilute stuff for the viewers."06/04/2005 09:19
