PR professional Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) has been on the client side of the business before, but she’s never been outed like this before. Her scandal with the POTUS has her personal and professional life on the line. She can’t exactly hire her own people to handle her crisis – they might have to testify before Congress, too. So, Olivia hires outsider Leo Bergen to spin the story “into the greatest romance ever told.”
Leo Bergen is portrayed by Paul Adelstein. The Chicago native is best known for his roles on Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce (Jake), Private Practice and Grey’s Anatomy (Dr. Cooper Freedman), and Prison Break (Paul Kellerman). Adelstein is currently filming the drama Mothers Day with Christina Ricci, Courteney Cox, Sharon Stone, and Susan Sarandon. Lucky fella. Scandal airs Thursdays at 9pm on ABC.
