Allison Janney promised a Toledo audience full of West Wing fans one big incentive if Hillary Clinton is elected president.
She’ll come back and do “The Jackal.”
West Wing viewers remember — and love — the first-season episode in which C.J. Cregg, the unflappable press secretary portrayed by Janney, lip-syncs to the Ronny Jordan song.
You currently star in “Mom,” and your new movie, “Tallulah,” explores a lot of issues about motherhood. I wanted to ask you about not having children yourself, though it’s one of those things you don’t ask a man. I know what it feels like to love and care about things, but I’ve never had that instinct to have kids. There’s a friend of mine who just graduated from high school, and I was at her party with all these little kids, and she was like, “I can’t wait to have kids!” At her age, I was thinking, I can’t wait to have a dog. I really am at peace with not being a mom.

n Juno, Jason Reitman’s infinitely quotable Oscar-winning comedy, Ellen Page and Allison Janney’s scant screen time together proved their strong chemistry playing daughter and stepmother. They’re given more room to explore that connection in Tallulah, Sian Heder’s deeply felt feature writing/directing debut, that finds Janney once again playing a mother figure to Page. But that’s where the similarities between the films end.
Page plays Lu, a free-spirited young woman living the gypsy life with her boyfriend, Nico, out of a van. The film begins with the pair at a crossroads: Lu longs to travel to India, while Nico wants to start a family and reconnect with his estranged mother in New York. When Nico unceremoniously leaves Lu one night, she heads to New York in search of answers.
