“Scandal’s” Tony Goldwyn: “When we read the script, I was like, ‘What?!'”
Goldwyn says Season 3 of “Scandal” is very different. “It is different, which I was so happy to find out, because I didn’t know, and I was so afraid we’d start repeating ourselves,” he says. “It’s darker.

We are really starting to sink deep roots.” PLUS: Gladiators and cast and crew react to the season premiere, “Scandal” stars become mannequins at Saks Fifth Avenue, Olivia Pope’s fashion detailed, even guys like “Scandal,” is “Scandal” optimistic?, Scott Foley defends Jake Ballard, should you root for Fitz & Olivia?, why Olivia is no role model, and Capitol Hill is hooked.
