Here’s your first look at Scandal‘s First Kids.
One week after TVLine broke the news that the ABC drama would (finally) be introducing us to Fitz and Mellie’s children, Jerry and Karen, we can now exclusively report that Dylan Minnette and Madeline Carroll have landed the roles.
Minnette’s TV credits include a recent episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the role of Jason Isaac’s son on Awake, a recurring bit as Jack Shephard’s son on Lost and Grey’s Anatomy’s Season 4 Halloween episode.
Carroll, meanwhile, has guested on Shondaland’s Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice, as well as played young Ben Linus’ gal pal Annie in an episode of Lost.
Both Minnette and Carroll also appeared on The Hub’s anthology series R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour.
And yes, I suggested Minnette for Jerry in our original story. ‘Cause I have powers like that. Real 0-8-4 stuff. But 250 TVLine Power User Points (currently of zero value) to reader @TV_Miranda, who spotted Minnette in Joshua Malina’s table read photo.
Scandal returns from its winter break on Feb. 27, with the 11th of this season’s 18 episodes. The Grant offspring will appear in Episode 15.
