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.

    • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!
