Richard Schiff stars in the new West End play Smash!
Famous for his portrayal of character Toby Ziegler in the West Wing, Richard Schiff is starring in a new West End play called Smash!
Written by Jack Rosenthal, it is the story of the playwright's own experience of turning his hit TV play Bar Mitzvah Boy into a less-than-successful musical of the same name.
Richard Schiff tells BBC Radio 5 live's Richard Bacon about the play and how his West Wing role has restricted the parts he has been able to get.
