First Look at Lisa Kudrow on 'Scandal'


The 'Friends' alumna will play a powerful and smart politician, whom Darby Stanchfield's Abby admires.

Lisa Kudrow ditches her goofy "Friends" persona to join "Scandal". How she will look like on the ABC drama is now revealed as first photo of her in character has landed online via TV Guide.

Not much is known about Kudrow's recurring role, but Darby Stanchfield who plays Abby recently dished on Kudrow's character. "Lisa has a really nice role" as a powerful and smart politician," so Stanchfield said. She continued sharing, "Our characters get along. She's almost like a mentor. Not quite like Olivia, but Abby admires the heck out of her, so it was fun to play."

Stanchfield stressed that Kudrow's character would be different from her "Friends" alter ego, saying, "You're not getting Phoebe. It's kind of amazing what you are going to get. You're getting the spicy version in that variety pack."

Series creator Shonda Rhimes also sang praise for the "Bandslam" actress, "It's amazing that Lisa said yes. She's a nuanced, intelligent actress, and Kerry Washington ended every working day saying, 'Oh, my God, Lisa's incredible!' "

Kudrow will make her debut on the hit political drama series on October 24. She's not the only guest stars tapped for the show's season 3 since Paul Adelstein, Sally Pressman and Jack Coleman have been slated to appear as well.

Rhimes teased that "Paul Adelstein is incredibly, crazy surprising in his role on 'Scandal'," adding, "Like, you will not even recognize him."
