Columbus Short joked that Shonda Rhimes has achieved what Martin Luther King, Jr. dreamed about with the diverse audience that loves “Scandal.”
Columbus told Arsenio Hall that he’s approached by everyone from drug dealers to Jewish teens who love the ABC hit show in which he co-stars as Harrison Wright.
“That’s the crazy thing about ‘Scandal,’ how wide of an audience it spans. Who knew? I’m a hit at bat mitzvahs,” joked Columbus who said even drug dealers told him they take a break between 10 and 11 p.m. on Thursday nights when the show airs.
“Martin Luther King dreamed about this,” he said.
Columbus also talked to Arsenio about his kids and even performed a song on the show.
