So I recently knocked out the first seven episodes of Scandal via Netflix. It’s a quick-paced, character-driven, serialized, political drama with superior production values; and it’s chic. I dig it.
Recently, the co-star of Scandal, Tony Goldwyn (who is the grandson of MGM movie studio founder Samuel Goldwyn) recently spoke about his approach to his role as President Grant at GoldDerby.com:
Although playing the leader of the free world was a little daunting for Goldwyn at first, he relished the challenge of bringing a flawed, sexier, and certainly more human President to the screen. In bringing this character to life, Goldwyn was inspired by past and present commanders in chief. “There’s a Kennedy-esque quality to the way Shonda wrote him, but the two people I most paid attention to were Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, even though Fitz is a Republican,” he said. “They’re both absolute rock star public speakers.”
