Kate Burton to Guest Star on SCANDAL

September 26, 2011 by  

If you’re a fan of Shonda Rhimes’ shows, this latest bit of SCANDAL guest casting news is sure to excite you: Kate Burton (GREY’S ANATOMY’s Ellis Grey, AKA Meredith’s dead mother) will guest star on ABC’s midseason series as the Vice President of the United States.

Burton’s VP, who first appears in the fifth episode of the season, is a member of the Tea Party, Rhimes told a group of reporters who were visiting the set earlier today. Her political affiliations could cause some conflict with the show’s President Grant, who is a Republican.

And added bonus to this awesome piece of casting news? Jeff Perry — whom GA viewers will recall plays Meredith’s father, Thatcher — is a series regular on SCANDAL, playing Cyrus, the chief of staff for President Grant.

Let’s hope Perry and Burton finally get a chance to share screentime on SCANDAL!
