Scandal Exclusive: Katie Lowes' Husband Cast in 'Surreal' Role, as Quinn's [Spoiler]

Get More: Casting News, Exclusive

Scandal Spoilers: Adam Shapiro Cast as Jesse TylerArt will kinda sorta (but hopefully not too much!) imitate life when Scandal cast member Katie Lowes‘ actor-husband shows up on ABC’s buzzy sophomore drama as a very important man from Quinn’s past.

Adam Shapiro, whose TV credits include Grey’s Anatomy‘s gunman-in-the-hospital two-parter and a recurring role on NBC’s new White House comedy 1600 Penn, will guest-star in at least one episode of Scandal as Lindsay Dwyer’s doomed boyfriend Jesse.

As Scandalistas know, Jesse was among the several Cytron employees killed years ago by the bomb that Lindsay was accused of mailing. As such, expect to see Shapiro in flashbacks that shed light on the couple’s happier times and the fateful frame job that robbed Lindsay of love but gave “Quinn Perkins” a second chance at life.

“Working with Adam was totally surreal and wonderful!” Lowes tells TVLine of the wink-wink casting. “We’ve done tons of theatre together over the years, but never anything like this. Plus, he might be the biggest Scandal fan ever himself, so he was jumping around like a five-year-old when he booked the part.”

Hopefully (though improbably), the marrieds’ loved ones will somehow never lay eyes on this TVLine story. “We are keeping it a secret from our families who all watch the show religiously,” she says, “so when Adam first pops up on-screen as Quinn’s boyfriend, our mothers are going to freak out!”

  • People wrote off Scandal saying this would be the last season and it would get cancelled. Good thing they were wrong. Can’t wait for new episodes.
