Magic (nearly) on West Wing

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

Last night's episode of West Wing had some flourishey moves with cards and coins. Will Bailey (played by Joshua Malina) forced a card with a Hindu Shuffle just before he was shot at; and later, during a poker game, C.J. Cregg (Alison Janney) dealt a poker hand one-handed, and Bailey did a very smooth coin roll over his knuckles with a poker chip.

I've known Josh Malina for years and while he's not a magician, he is a hell of a poker player.

So he can handle cards and chips with the aplomb of someone who's spent many hours doing it.
