Despite some news that just broke that an actor named Eric West would be replacing Columbus Short on the hit series Scandal, we can confirm that it is all untrue.
On the season finale of the show, it is unclear whether Columbus‘ character Harrison Wright has been killed off or is still alive. After it was confirmed that he will not be returning to the series, most fans presumed the worst for the character.
“I’ve never heard of Eric West. Harrison is not being recast EVER. How about reporters CHECK THEIR SOURCES before running with a story?” creator Shonda Rhimes tweeted after the false story broke.
DO YOU THINK Columbus Short should be replaced on Scandal?
