Actor Scott Foley to Appear in Major Arc on ‘Scandal’

Scott Foley on Cougar Town

Since last TV season the ABC political drama Scandal has been making waves – all of the good kind – with viewers who have been clamoring for more and more details about fixer Olivia Pope (series lead Kerry Washington) and the rest of the amazing cast of characters in this DC-driven series.

Now, news has broken at TV Line that actor Scott Foley – best known for his role in the popular WB series ‘Felicity – has landed a recurring role on the series that will actually be a major arc toward the latter part of the show’s current season.

But, the disappointing part of this news is that the network is keeping details on his role under very tight wraps, which will leave fans wondering just what role he will play in the existing storylines. Let the speculation begin.

Among Foley’s credits are the CBS military series ‘The Unit’ as well as guest appearances on ‘Scrubs’, ‘Cougar Town’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘True Blood’ as well as the box office film ‘Scream 3’ and the made-for-TV movie ‘Firestorm: Last Stand at Yellowstone’.

A new episode of ‘Scandal’ – now in its second season – will air on ABC on Thursday, January 17 at 10/9c.
