Allison Janney channelled The West Wing, performed "The Jackal" on Arsenio last night

On last night’s Arsenio, Allison Janney channeled old alter ego C.J. Cregg and performed “The Jackal.” Janney’s last and most notable performance of Ronnie Jordan’s “The Jackal” came in 2000, during season one of The West Wing, when she entertained the fictional President’s staff with the sly, jazzy rap. Both then and now, it’s a sight to behold, so bless Janney’s heart for at least pretending to still know the words.
