After making a return to Grey's Anatomy to provide closure for Burke and his relationship to Cristina (Sandra Oh), Isaiah Washington has another Shonda Rhimes show in his sights: Scandal.

The actor talked about the possibility of getting Scandal-ous in an interview with WWAY of Wilmington, NC. He was in town to film the movie The Sin Seer, and he took up a local news producer's Twitter offer to watch his Grey's reprise with her.

So of course, the news station nabbed the opportunity for a live interview with him after the episode — during which the reporter asked him about an, ahem, anonymous tip that Isaiah was headed to Scandal.

"I thought that was off the record," Isaiah deadpanned, sending the interview into a moment of awkward silence before both he and the reporter burst into laughter.

"Well, there's some talks. There's some possibilities out there. I did tweet it. I am pushing it. It would be fun to show up on Scandal. Down the road. Down the road."

This could just be wishful thinking on his part, but we wouldn't be surprised if he did indeed pop up at Olivia Pope & Associates especially because he still has a big fan in Shonda. "Isaiah is a person that we all love and have loved for a very long time," she told Entertainment Weekly.
