Shonda Rhimes, make this happen, please!
In recent interviews with E!, Orange Is the New Black favorites Uzo Aduka (Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren) and Laverne Cox (Sophia Burset) were both asked which other show they'd want to guest star on, and they had the same answer: Scandal!
Neither woman hesitated before answering, so you know they must be big fans of the hit primetime drama. Can you blame them? It's totally addicting.
"I would love to be across from Olivia Pope just once saying, ‘Handle it'," Uzo added when asked why she picked Scandal. "I would love Cyrus to give me some sort of press conference speech." We feel you, Uzo.
We were only kind of kidding with our first line here. Uzo and Laverne are both Orange Is the New Black fan faves for a reason — they're awesome actresses who are able to handle anything the writers throw at them, as they've more than proved over the last two seasons. They'd both make great additions to the Scandal cast, either for one episode plots or for larger guest roles.
Plus, we know Shonda is a huge Orange Is the New Black fan. In fact, she even wrote about OITNB head honcho Jenji Kohan for this year's TIME 100 Most Influential People list. She watches the show, and that means she's aware of how talented these actresses are. It wouldn't be too hard for her to write them roles...
Hey, we can dream, right?
