Scandal Scoop: Stephen Collins to Guest-Star

Scandal Season 2 SpoilersPerpetually busy onetime 7th Heaven pop Stephen Collins has lined up a new gig — on ABC’s perpetually juicy Scandal.

Collins, who previously has recurred on Shonda Rhimes’ Private Practice (as Addison’s father aka “The Captain”) will guest-star as a reporter in an upcoming Season 2 episode.

Scandal earlier this week received a full-season order, bringing its sophomore run to 22 episodes.

      wtf r u kidding me?! Scandal is WAY better than PP! Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been a loyal fan of PP since the beginning, but it’s run its course and I’m glad it’s ending after this season. SCANDAL IS AWESOME!

    Scandal is the best show on TV. I can’t get enough… It’s totally addictive. Bravo, Bravo to Kerry Washington and Tony Goldwyn, they embody their characters. They leave me breathless!!

    Well that’s a dissapointing role! A reporter? Seriously? Why couldn’t that idiot woman make him a senator? Or at least an editor of a newspaper! He is way too old to be a reporter. He also should recur on PPP again Addie has to forgive her father. I dunno what that woman thinks. Seriously.

  4. Kevin says:

    Kerry Washington , tony Goldwyn are Terrific and awesome as Fitz & Olivia.
    Bellamy Young is perfert as the ambitious & crazy first lady.
    Scandal is best Show !

  5. WJ says:

    When I first googled this article I thought that Mr. Collins was going to replace Fritz. I too thought that he would have a more substantive role than just a reporter. Scandal is a terrific show and is very addictive. It’s not surprising that the second season has been picked up for a full 22 episodes!
