Adelstein, once Private Practice doctor, will be joining Season 3 of the DC-set drama in what is as of yet a secret role. But, really, is anything ever not a secret in Shonda Rhimes’ world?
His role on Scandal will be Adelstein’s first primetime role on television since Private Practice ended its run back in January – CBS pilot Mother’s Day, which he played opposite Debra Messing, did not make the 2013-14 schedule. Paul Adelstein’s credits also include Prison Break, Cupid, and Law & Order: SVU. He is also lead singer and guitarist of the band Doris.
Scandal premieres on Thursday, October 3rd at 10PM ET.
