INTERVIEW: Guillermo Diaz Previews What’s Next For Scandal’s “Ride-Or-Die Gladiators”

Scandal left its fans in suspense after its cliffhanger-filled midseason finale. Guillermo Diaz, who had one of this television season’s most memorable scenes when his character Huck yanked out a couple of Quinn’s (Katie Lowes) teeth, previewed what’s next for the tortured torturer. He also shared his thoughts on Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Olivia’s (Kerry Washington) future, and revealed why B613 will continue to be terrifying no matter who is in charge.

Daytime Confidential: All hell broke loose in the Scandal midseason finale. What’s next for Huck?

Guillermo Diaz: The first episode you guys are going to see in February, you’re going to see Huck is still struggling with the fact he tortured Quinn and I don’t think he feels bad about that. What he feels bad about is that he knows Olivia is going to be really upset. So I think he’s embarrassed in front of her, kind of like when you have a dog that chewed up a shoe, or did something bad and he knows he did something bad, so they kind of have their head down. Honestly, we’re only one episode ahead of the episode you guys are going to see in February. So we don’t know that much more. We’ve only shot one. We’re shooting the next one right now. So we don’t know that much more that happens, but it’s exciting. Scott Foley, Jake, is the head of B613 now. That’s going to be a really interesting storyline. You kind of see Jake not as dark as Huck, but you start to see little glimpses of the darkness that shows through. It’s really cool how they’re doing that. It’s fun.

Scandal Ups Scott Foley to Series Regular

It looks like Scott Foley’s Jake Ballard will be sticking around Scandal. According to TV Guide, Foley will be a series regular next season.

"I'm thrilled to join such a talented, enthusiastic and professional group of people," Foley said in a statement. "Shonda [Rhimes] and company have created a troupe of layered complex characters and to be able to be part of that is both exciting and humbling."

Who Is The Mole on ABC’s Scandal?


Scandal, arguably the hottest show on television right now, has me on the edge of my seat. From the torrid yet heartfelt love affair between President Fitzgerald Grant III (Tony Goldwyn) and Washington DC’s Top Fixer Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) to the craziness that walks into Olivia Pope and Associates, this show has everything. Currently, a mole is leaking information out of The White House and posing a serious threat to the United States Government. However, who’s the culprit? On a show with such dastardly grey characters as Scandal, it could be anyone. Here’s a list and breakdown of my top suspects.
