Calling all gladiators, ABC7 has a few "Scandal" scoops to pass along.

Former "Friends" actress Lisa Kudrow will guest star in a recurring role as a politician.

Meanwhile, Tony Goldwyn, who plays President Fitz, says the third season picks up with everyone running around like chickens with their heads cut off. It's triggered by someone leaking the truth about his affair with Olivia Pope.
Fitz tries to be the calm, stabilizing force.

Plus, we'll learn more about his relationship with Jake, who is now a series regular. "Scandal" returns to ABC7 on October 3rd.
