Scandal: Connie Britton Was Almost Olivia Pope, Y'all - TVGuide.com

ABC had a very different idea of Olivia Pope in mind, y'all. After Scandal was ordered to series in 2011, creator Shonda Rhimes received a call from an ABC executive about who should play the white hat-wearing fixer. "I got a phone call from somebody who said, 'This would be the perfect show for Connie Britton,'" Rhimes told The Hollywood Reporter for its oral history of the series. "I said, 'It would be, except Olivia Pope is black.'" Though Rhimes is known for her colorblind casting on her shows, she told THR that it was vital Olivia be black because "nothing felt more important than the sense of outsiderness" on the D.C.-set show.

The sneak peek for this week’s episode of Scandal is out. And from the looks of it, Huck’s fate is still unknown, and Olivia is finally in the know. From the preview, we can see that OPA have photos of the man and the woman, possibly screengrabbed from the footage Rowan left behind. Jake walks in and informs them Jennifer Fields is missing.
