Lisa Kudrow Books Scandalous Gig

First Scott Foley getting upgraded to series regular and now this. Fellow Gladiators, I need my Scandal fix now.

Deadline.com first broke the news that Lisa Kudrow is the latest to join the ranks of Scandal this Fall. Question remains. Will she be “friend” or foe to Olivia Pope? Personally, it doesn’t matter to me as long as Shonda Rhimes names her character Regina Phalange. How awesome would that be?

Kudrow’s addition to the show reunites her with her long-time producing partner Dan Bucatinsky who plays Cyrus’ husband James Novak. Kudrow and Bucatinsky’s production company is responsible for The Comeback, Web Therapy and Who Do You Think You Are? No word on what role Lisa will play on the show, but it’s a safe bet she’ll be a politician given that Season 3 will revolve around Fitz’ re-election campaign.

Excited for Lisa to join Scandal? Are you excited for the third season of ABC’s hit show? Sound off below.
