We can't say for sure what Jake will be up to in the fall, of course, but Foley can say he's very excited to find out along with us.

“I’m thrilled to join such a talented, enthusiastic and professional group of people,” he said in a statement. “Shonda [Rhimes] and company have created a troupe of layered complex characters and to be able to be part of that is both exciting and humbling.”

Scandal returns with new episodes in September.

Great! I hope he and Olivia get together; I don´t like Olivia and Fitz (such an unhealthy relationship, imo), but I loved Jake with Olivia!
I know I´m in the minority, but that´m my opinion:)
And I hope the show gets back to its premise, the gladiators and their cases, the rest for me is just a soap opera!
