The entire “Scandal” cast came out to host the season four finale screening at the Paley Center For Media in NYC last night. Also, a few of your fave reality stars hit the carpet the NBCUniversal Upfronts. Pics inside….
The explosive fourth season finale of “Scandal” aired last night. But before we watched Olivia Pope go head-to-head against her father Papa Pope, the entire “Scandal” cast, including Scott Foley, Portia de Rossi, Darby Stanchfield, Guillermo Diaz, Joe Morton, Joshua Malina, Jeff Perry, Bellamy Young, Tony Goldwyn and Kerry Washington, gathered at the Paley Center For Media in NYC to host a finale screening yesterday.
Kerry Washington, who plays the powerful crisis manager Olivia Pope, worked the carpet in a silver and yellow Prabal Gurung frock, which she styled with black Russo peep-toe pumps and her hair pulled back into an around the head braid. She stopped to pose it up for the cameras and talk to the media as she made her way down the carpet and inside the event.
Emmy winner Joe Morton aka Papa Pope was all smiles on the purple carpet.
Once inside, the cast appeared on stage to chop it up about the season four finale titled, “You Can’t Take Command.” We learned after last night’s episode, you can’t beat Command, but it appears Eli Pope can be brought down. Or can he? We’ll see when the fifth season picks back up this fall.
