Larenz Tate Responds to Rumors He’s Joining ‘Scandal’
Actor Larenz Tate stopped by Universal Studios Hollywood to chat with “Extra’s” Tracey Edmonds, responding to rumors that he's going to replace Columbus Short on “Scandal.”
Larenz said, “I got to say that ‘Scandal’ is an incredible show, but there's been a lot of hearsay. There’s nothing that's in stone. If there were a situation where I could go and do a character arc, I'd love to go and do something with them, but I'm really happy with the show ‘Rush’ and hoping that we come back for a second season.”
Tate plays Dr. Alex Burke on the USA Network series.
In other "Scandal" casting news, "Arrested Development" star Portia de Rossi will join the show's fourth season for a multiple-episode arc.
