Shonda, the formidable showrunner behind Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice and Scandal, is tight-lipped about just who Jasika will play on Scandal, the frothy Kerry Washington starrer about a cleaner who fixes high-level problems in the nation’s capital.
All that’s been said about Jasika’ appearance is that it will be “very surprising,” according to THR.
Here’s hoping Jasika’s character plays a female fling from lead character Olivia Pope’s past, and they discover the spark is still there. You know, just a little something to take Olivia’s mind off her troubles with the President. Just a thought Shonda!
