Scandal Stars Before ScandalScandal is the absolute hottest show out right now. From the beginning it's been a roller coaster ride of conspiracies, double crosses and emotion that has every Twitter timeline going bonkers every single Thursday night. But besides Kerry Washington, the cast may be a mystery to some. So let's take a look at where these actors got their starts.
Columbus Short - You should all remember him from that pop-locking goof troop movie Stomp The Yard which was his big break. Buddy has come up.
Darby Stanchfield - This is her first huge break as she's mostly had short stints on shows like Mad Men, General Hospital and NCIS.
Katie Lowes - She's been a prolific actress since 2004, even landing a role in the second Transformers movie. Again, this is easily her biggest, most consistent role.
Guillermo Diaz - Huck is a quiet sociopath on Scandal but Diaz is actually a comedian who ran with Dave Chappelle in their breakout film Half Baked.
Jeff Perry - Everyone's gay White House staffer is an old-school actor who had a five-year run on Nash Bridges. Recently before Scandal he was on Grey's Anatomy and Prison Break, too.
Joshua Malina - His best run was on the criminally underrated Sports Night, which is one of the greatest shows of all time.
Tony Goldwyn - President Fitzgerald was the freaking voice of Tarzan in the Disney flick. But like most of the rest of the cast, this is his biggest role.
Bellamy Young - The First Lady is actually a banger! She's also knocked out some roles on Law & Order, Scrubs and a few other shows. But nothing like Scandal.
