Scandal Casts Battlestar Vet as [Spoiler]'s Abusive Ex-Husband

Michael Trucco Sea of Fire

Ex marks the spot for Battlestar Galactica alum Michael Trucco, who’s heading to Scandal as the estranged hubby of Darby Stanchfield’s Abby, TVLine has confirmed.

Per Scandal history, Trucco’s character, Charles Putney, is the youngest son of former Virginia Governor James Putney. His four-year arranged marriage to Abby ended when he assaulted her in a drunken stupor (prompting Olivia to return the favor by taking a tire iron to his knees).

Trucco is slated to appear in one November episode.
