President-Elect Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel was the inspiration for The West Wing’s #1 White House hottie, Josh Lyman.
(Interesting aside: After serving as Deputy Chief of Staff to Leo McGarry through President Bartlet’s administration, Josh Lyman became Chief of Staff under President Matt Santos at the end of the series. The eerie similarities between Obama’s reality and The West Wing’s storyline continue…)
Ari Emanuel was the inspiration for Entourage’s hilarious super-agent, Ari Gold.
Ezekiel Emanuel is a medical ethicist.
Screenwriters, start your engines!
Yeah, perhaps the Emanuel family won’t be scoring a hat trick.
Update: Jonathan informs me that the Emanuel brothers were interviewed by Charlie Rose this week. Now to find it online!
