Fri, April 3, 2015 9:42am EDT by Add first Comment

Empire is getting Scandal-ous! Well, it might be. A former Scandal star is dropping some big hints that he might pay a visit to another smash televisions series!

This is an exciting prospect! Columbus Short, most well known for playing Harrison on Scandal, might be getting back into the television game in a major way. While promoting his new indie flick, The Girls in Trouble, Columbus played coy about the rumor that he will appear on the second season of Empire, but he isn’t fooling us!

Columbus Short On ‘Empire’?

From Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) to Cookie (Taraji P. Henson)!

Fans were devastated when Harrison was killed off of Scandal. Luckily though, it seems like we won’t have to wait too long to see Columbus on our TVs again! Rumors have been running wild that he’d drop by Empire— and he didn’t do much to dispel them!

“Big things are happening,” Columbus told E! Online. “I’m going to be bridging my music career with my acting career.” Hm. What show could that be referring to?

While Columbus wouldn’t quite go all the way and confirm his role in the series, he did add, “I’m just saying it wouldn’t be a shock.”

Does Columbus Miss ‘Scandal?’

Columbus also revealed how much he misses his former home working on Scandal. “I won’t lie,” he said. “I do miss it. I miss it a lot.” In fact, Columbus misses it so much that he pretty much avoids it like the plague.

“I completely avoid it,” he said. “I support it, but it’s like being an injured football player on the sidelines… It’s like breaking up with your girlfriend…It’s like, ‘Oh, man, lets just hook up a couple of more times.”

Well, that’s one way to look at it!

Do you want to see Columbus on Empire?
