Scandal Stars Before Scandal
Scandal 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.
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.
Kerry Washington – We think you’re familiar with her. This scene in She Hate Me set our worlds on fire. But her acting chops really came along on Ray after getting an early start in Save The Last Dance. She’s the star of the show and earned her way.
