Allison Janney Surprises White House Press Corps at Daily Briefing

By Chris Ariens 

Allison Janney reprised her role as White House Press Secretary C.J. Cregg this afternoon surprising the real White House press corps.

“The president is still working on his jokes for the White House Correspondents Dinner,” said Janney as Cregg. “I don’t have any details on that other than he intends to be funny. Very funny.” Janney is in Washington for tomorrow’s dinner and to raise awareness for, and funding to battle, opiate abuse.

CBS’s Mark Knoller, of course, managed to get in the first, and only question, to Cregg. WATCH:
