William Devane: James Heller was “best part I’ve ever had”

That was the best, huh? [Grins.] The best. That’s a great experience. Wonderful people, great organization. I thought we had a great time. And that just evolved, you know? It was the craziest thing. I was the Secretary Of State forever, and all of a sudden I got the best part in television!

Did they warn you in advance that you’d be getting an upgrade when they brought you back?
No, you know, for years I kept trying to get to play the president, but they went with a woman, they did a lot of different things. This was a well-thought-out deal. But once I got it, that was probably the best part I’ve ever had in television.
