Allison Janney has some advice for White House press secretary Sean Spicer: “Just quit.”

Janney, who played fictional White House press secretary C.J. Cregg on NBC’s long-running political drama “The West Wing,” was asked to weigh in on the embattled spokesman for President Trump during a Friday interview on “Access Hollywood Live.”

“I say just let Melissa McCarthy fill in for you,” Janney, 57, told co-hosts Natalie Morales and Kit Hoover.


McCarthy has famously taken on a gender-bending role as a revved-up Spicer on “Saturday Night Live.”

The "Mom" star heaped praise on McCarthy’s impersonation, calling it “genius.”

“I could not give that man any advice, really, truly, except for … maybe just quit,” added Janney, who campaigned for former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonGrassley blasts Democrats over unwillingness to probe Clinton GOP lawmakers cite new allegations of political bias in FBI Top intel Dem: Trump Jr. refused to answer questions about Trump Tower discussions with father MORE.
