Scandal Casting Scoop: Who's Out? Who's In?
We've got news on a casting shake-up on ABC's Scandal.
Henry Ian Cusick - forever known to Lost fans as Demond Hume, but Pope & Associates employee Stephen Finch on this Shonda Rhimes drama - will not be returning to the show for its second season. The Hollywood Reporter says Cusick and Rhimes agreed to part ways on amicable terms.
Joshua Malina, meanwhile, who was only listed a recurring player on season one despite appearing in all seven episodes, has been upgraded to Scandal series regular. He plays attorney David Rosen.
Scandal was renewed in May and will air on Thursday nights this fall, following Grey's Anatomy and new drama Last Resort.
