Dan Bucatinsky: It's Awakened This Side Of Acting

Posted: Updated:

If "Scandal" viewers were shocked by the death of one of the show's most popular characters, so were two of the show's stars.

Dan Bucatinsky and Josh Malina were told that one of their characters would die after being shot on last Thursday's episode.  But until a week before the show aired, they didn't know which of them would be out of a job.

"Nobody knew what was going to happen," but Josh did try and have some input.  According to Dan, "Josh screamed out after the table read, ‘Kill Dan! He already has an Emmy."

Dan Bucatinsky joins Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A.
