Scandal Mystery: Who Is This Masked Man? (And Does This Hint at a Death?)

One of the Scandal actors got plastered — but why? (And should we be worried?)

Tony Goldwyn, who plays Fitz on the ABC drama, shared on Instagram this photo of a (what appears to be male) cast member’s head getting fitted for a plaster cast. The reasons for such a procedure are few, a frequent one being that the special effects team needs to make a “dummy” head for a stunt scene (e.g. a gruesome gunshot to the noggin; see The Walking Dead‘s Carl).

Any guesses on which #Scandal cast member is inside the plaster head? #TGIT

Then again, the purpose could be as benign as creating a bust of exiting President Grant, for display in a museum or some such. Zzzzzz.

Or… if we want to go all Mission Impossible on this thing… the special effects folks could be creating a latex mask of the actor, for the purpose of, say, Cyrus “peeling off” his face in the season finale to reveal he is really Billy Chambers!

OK, enough (sometimes-silly) speculation by me. Hit the Comments with your own theories on who this (married?) actor is, and why the plaster cast.

    I honestly think Cyrus will die season finale

  2. Belle says:

    As long as it’s not “TV’s Scott Foley” I’m okay with it…well no I’m not. Losing Cy seems drastic, I’d rather get rid of Liz – that character cut down on Cy time and he’s a BIG reason I watch the show, Jeff is phenomenal :)

  3. Gina says:

    My vote is Cyrus. As to why, I’m not even going to try to guess.

  4. Grace says:

    Definitely a dude, and the actor–or the character–is married. The hands look too young to be Cyrus. Fitz or Jake?

  5. Phebe Cheatem says:

    The ring on the hand is a dead giveaway.

  6. Lucia says:

    He’s Tony himself!!!

    Time to get rid of Jake Ballard,he is a murderer and a liar,Olivia forgives him but cannot forgive the man she loves Fitz.How about a Fitz Abby pairing!Olivia her character is very slutty

    • Anastasia says:

      I hope it is Jake. He and Olivia are both evil. They both deceive Fitz. I do not believe she
      ever loved Fitz. rather used him. Since season 3 she was always rude to Fitz and very
      friendly with Jake. Hope she kills him and goes to the gas chamber. It is time Fitz meet a
      real woman.

    I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, I wish Scott Foley a lifetime of steady employment but if Jake Ballard is killed off, so help me, I will break into a celebratory Irish jig and post in on YouTube.
