Best Casting News Ever: Lisa Kudrow Is Joining Scandal in Season 3!

We've got a lot of favorite TV shows at Glamour HQ,but two that come up in conversation daily (and I mean daily) are Scandal and Friends.Because of this fact,you could say we're pretty excited about this latest news: Lisa Kudrow is joining Kerry Washington and Co.in the upcoming season of Scandal!We might as well call it When Olivia Pope Met Phoebe Buffay.Except it probably won't be anything like that.According to The Hollywood Reporter,there haven't been any further details released about the character,other than the fact that she'll be playing a politician.I'm kind of hoping she plays a rival to Olivia—Kudrow was actually really great as the conniving school counselor in Easy A,right?We don't even know her name yet,though I'm willing to bet "Regina Phalange" has been tossed around a time or two (if not,Scandal producers,you're welcome).We also don't know when exactly Kudrow will first appear on the show,though season three officially returns to ABC on Thursday,October 3.Are you as excited as I am that Lisa Kudrow is joining the cast?Do you hope she'll be Olivia's friend or foe?Photo: Wireimage
