Janel Moloney And Bradley Whitford
She has appeared as a guest on ER, Sports Night, The Adventures of Brisco The chemistry between Janel Moloney and Bradley Whitford, who portrayed Josh Lyman, caught producers’ attention early in the series. After seeing Moloney and Whitford perform together in the pilot, Aaron Sorkin added a scene in which Donna argues with Josh to change his shirt before attending a meeting, eventually convincing him by saying, “All the girls think you look really hot in this shirt”.
Although Mandy Hampton was originally intended to be Josh’s romantic interest, by the end of the show’s first season the character was written out and the role taken over by Donna.
During the first four seasons, the relationship remains in stasis, with neither daring to make any real romantic move on the other.
Sorkin admits that he was more inclined to move the relationship forward, but, every time he discussed the possibility, fellow executive producer Thomas Schlamme would shout, “No! Wait another year!” “Besides”, adds Sorkin, “Sexual and romantic tension is, to me, much more fun than taking the tension away by having the sex and romance”.
Other characters occasionally speculate on the pair’s relationship. When Donna encourages Josh to ask Joey Lucas on a date, Joey guesses that Donna is attempting to cover her own feelings for Josh through misdirection.
During her first meeting with Josh, Amy Gardner asks him if he is dating his assistant, and later asks Donna directly, “Are you in love with Josh?”, although the show cuts to another scene before viewers can see the answer. When Donna recruits Josh to help her get a date with Jack Reese, Josh’s behavior leads Jack to wonder whether he is getting “in between anything”.
