Gladiators in Suits: Scandal’s Cast Members Talk About Shonda Rhimes’ New Series

Shonda Rhimes’ (Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice) new drama finally premieres tonight, April 5th at 10pm on ABC. The series (which is one of my favorites from the 2011-2012 season) focuses on Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington), the ruthless owner of a prominent crisis management firm and her team of "gladiators in suits" which include Stephen Finch (Henry Ian Cusick, Lost), Harrison Wright (Columbus Short, Stomp the Yard), Huck (Guillermo Diaz, Half-Baked), Abby Whelan (Darby Stanchfield, Jericho) and new recruit Quinn Perkins (Katie Lowes).

Also in the picture are Olivia’s former boss, President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn, Ghost) and his chief of staff, Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry, Grey’s Anatomy).

Even if you aren’t a fan of Shonda Rhimes’ previous series, you might want to give Scandal a shot because it is pretty amazing. Olivia Pope is such a powerful character and if you are a political junkie and/or want to find out more about the world of crisis management, Scandal has you served. It’s gritty and way bolder than I expected it to be. I have seen the first three episodes and I can tell you that each one will leave you on the edge of seat. Read More...
