TV Line Spoilers: Casting News


Question: Any new casting news for Scandal since Harrison left the show? —Jennifer
This scoop is rated “T for Tentative,” but I hear the show is looking to add a new recurring character to the mix who is described in the casting notice as an African-American lawyer in his 30s to 50s. There’s no timetable for the newbie’s arrival, and the whole thing could be scrapped if Shonda Rhimes doesn’t find the right actor. (She already made it pretty clear that she’s in no rush to beef up the cast.) Also worth noting: This is not a Harrison recast.
