Move over Fitz and make room for Fritz!! Jon Tenney has been cast on Scandal as a love interest for Mellie Grant.

Jon Tenney

Tenney, who played FBI agent Fritz Howard on The Closer and Major Crimes before joining Rebecca Romjin on King and Maxwell, is set to recur on ABC's hit series beginning with the show's February 27 outing.

He'll play Andrew, a handsome and charismatic suitor for the FLOTUS. It's about time she got some love, don't you think? 

What do you think about Jon Tenney coming to Scandal?

Olivia and fitz were made for each other and perfect for each other, hopefully with Mellie hgetting a love interest this will lead to the show moving forward.... OLITZ FOR LIFE lol but i hope mellie finds happiness too


Yes! Yes! Yes! Fritzie from the Closer is moving on Fitz's wife! Yes! Yes! Yes! Team Mellie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now what you want to bet Fitz get jealous!


Wow. Glad Mellie is gonna get some


Happy that Mellie will have a love. I still don't think Olivia and Fitz are a good match. Perhaps KW's pregnancy will make her absent for awhile and the scandal in the WH will become more dominate than the Olivia and Fitz scandal.

@ Thelyla

I disagree. The White House needs to take a back seat to OPA. We need more focus on OPA and less WH. The Cyrus and Mellie scheming and achieving nothing is getting boring. There is too much ranting and raving by Cyrus and Mellie. It was fun at first but not any more. The show needs to go back to its roots which is OPA and flesh out the OPA staff back stories. Let's find out more about Harrison and Abby. Actually Olivia and Fitz are a good match because they are both damaged people. Olivia supports Fitz while Mellie tears him down which she did even before Olivia came on the scene. I don't think Mellie even likes Fitz since she has always considered him idealist, weak, romantic, an idiot, not ruthless enough, etc. Let Mellie get a new man who hopefully she won't denigrate and can support him. Someone who suits her personality.


YES !!! I'm so happy for Mellie. I hope this is more than a fling because that woman deserves a good man & true love. Jon Tenney is great casting.


I am so there for this. Mellie needs some lovin.


So this is going to be interesting!!!

Olivia [to Fitz]

Olivia: I don't want normal, and easy, and simple. I want..
Edison: What? What do you want, Olivia?
Olivia: I want painful, difficult, devastating, life-changing, extraordinary love. Don't you want that, too?
Edison: Love is not supposed to be painful or devastating. Love isn't supposed to hurt, Liv.
