    I never watched this show, but I’m really curious to see how Lisa handles drama.

    My guess is that it’s more of a comedic role anyway.

    Yes, I guess, but even then, it’s a totally different air from her previous works. I read somewhere she’ll play a senator.

    I think this will be a role a la Matthew Perry on The Good Wife.

    Love Lisa Kudrow, always thought she was underrated. I don’t think I’ve seen her in anything straight dramatic, but again, not sure if that’s the role she’ll play here. If her character is like Mike Krestevea (Perry on TGW), sign me up. I’d love to see her ham it up in public and then be a cold-hearted bitch behind closed doors. I’m excited for Kudrow!

    Lisa Kudrow on “Scandal”? Shocking.

    This news seems pretty weird, but then there’s the Dan Bucantinsky connection so…maybe not so weird. I want to see how this works out. This show isn’t that dramatic anyway so maybe it won’t be like that, but hopefully it’ll be very far from what she usually does so we can see a different side of Kudrow.

    Kudrow can totally do dramatic. Just watch “The Opposite Of Sex”. She’ll be great.

    I loved me some Lucia.  

    I think Lisa will do great on Scandal.

    Brilliant casting! Been waiting for Lisa to comeback to episodic television for a long time. And here’s a JUICY trailer to get our Gladiator bodies ready for October 3.

    SPOILERS if anyone doesn’t want to know about her role:

    Apparently, she will be playing a Democratic senator who rises up through the primaries, and eventually faces Fitz in the election. She also apparently will go through a scandal, and visit the gladiators for some help. She will have some scenes with Dan Bucatinsky.

    I got this from Yahoo! TV.

    So Scandal is officially an Emmy Award winning show. I wanna say this shows more love for the show than we thought, but it’s probably really just love for Dan Bucatinsky. He’s got a lot of experience wokring with a lot of people in front of an behind the camera so that probably helped him, plus he did have a very showy episode.

    Hopefully this will get Scandal going into season 3 with an extra boost of buzz, not that the show really needs it. Lisa Kudrow as Best Guest Actress in a Drama Series nominee 2014?

    Fun! Just abosolute soapy fun. And usually I would have somehing slick/shady to say about how Big Shonda is not here for her “War & Peace” being described as a soap (see, I did it lol), but after last week’s episode it would all be self loathing pontification at this point. The one-two combo of rape that produce the juicy story leg of a WTD story and #MamaPope. Also that episode showed me that the show still has a long way to go if it wants to be an ensemble piece ala TGW 2.0 especially now w/this “test run” due to Kerry’s pregnancy.

    Ah, here’s this sadly neglected thread. This show provided much relief for me last night after taking as much as I could of The Sound of Music Live! But, if anyone wants a quick catch-up, here’s an interview with the creator about the season so far:

    http://www.vulture.com/2013/12/shonda-rhimes-talks-season-3-of-scandal.html

    And then here’s the news that this season’s episode order has been reduced to 18 episodes:
