The dancer-turned-actor has found himself in trouble again
Columbus Keith Short plays one of Olivia Pope’s (Kerry Washington) crisis management team in the hit TV drama, Scandal. So how appropriate, then, is that he’s accused of striking someone on the nose and knocking them out at an L.A restaurant. Sometimes the headlines write themselves.
Columbus Short on set in downtown L.A
According to The L.A Times, Short was arrested on Wednesday (March 27) for the incident that allegedly occurred on March 15. Prosecutors charged him with felony battery with serious bodily injury after he become involved in a disagreement with the man. He was booked by Claremont police and released on $50,000 bail.

A newbie's guide to Kerry Washington's hit ABC political thriller/crime solving/bonkers series 'Scandal'.
‘Scandal’ is the ABC political thriller that is taking the world by storm, but what’s so special about Olivia Pope and her crime solving crisis management crew? Set in Washington, D.C. (yes, it is just a coincidence that the main character is played by Kerry Washington...we think) ‘Scandal’ focuses on Olivia Pope, former House Director of Communications for the White House, widely recognised as the number one “fixer” of political mishaps and misdemeanors in Washington. Sacrificing social life and sleep to fix crises for what seems like everyone and their dog, Olivia works tirelessly with her loyal team of super lawyers.
Kerry Washington plays Olivia Pope in ABC's 'Scandal'
Olivia’s own life isn’t without it’s own scandals, including an affair with the current President of the United States (Fitz, not Obama) and, unsurprisingly, a tense relationship with the First Lady. Each episode is more outrageous and shocking than the last, laden with affairs, sex tapes, murders and more plot twists than you can shake a stick out, ‘Scandal’ has become one of the most popular and talked about TV series of recent years.

SNL's first black female cast addition in five years receives outpouring of enthusiasm.
Sasheer Zamata will become the first black female to be added to the cast of Saturday Night Live since Maya Rudolph left five year ago when she makes her debut on the 18th January. Sasheer, a 27 year-old comedian, singer and actress, was selected by Lorne Michaels and the SNL team after a lengthy nationwide auditions process.
Kenan Thompson Was Often Drafted In In Drag To Play Black Women.
The popular Saturday night sketch show drew criticism for its lack of a black female cast member and for drafting in Kenan Thompson in drag every time they needed to represent a black woman. However, the show's startling lack of black female talent reached breaking point when Kenan Thompson announced that he'd refuse to play any more women in drag.

It may be slow and painful, but SNL is finally taking steps to diversify its cast.
After facing severe criticism for the lack of diversity earlier this season, Saturday Night Live is finally taking steps to hire an African American female cast member. The long-running sketch comedy held auditions on Monday night, during which seven or eight candidates performed. One or two comediennes will be hired and will join the cast for shows in January.
Pharaoh (l) and Thompson (r) brought attention to the show's lack of diversity this year.
The woman or women will be the first black comedienne(s) on SNL since Maya Rudolph's departure in 2007. As a few clever sketches from the Kerry Washington episode pointed out, SNL desperately needs the additions. The barrage of criticism was set off by the show's black cast members, who put the diversity issue at the forefront this year. Jay Pharaoh said that SNL needed to "follow up" on the promise to bring in a black woman and Kenan Thompson refused to do drag and perform any more parodies of black women.

Newcomers like 'House of Cards' and 'Master of Sex' replace the old guards like 'Mad Men' and 'Homefront' in the TV noms
The nominations for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards were revealed this week and although there were few surprises in the movie nominations; in the television categories however, it's time for change in the established order of critically-acclaimed TV. Former nomination regulars like Mad Men and Homefront are nowhere to be seen in the nominees lists, replaced instead by the new order of critically-acclaimed shows.
Master of Sex, along with House of Cards, is now the show to beat
Master of Sex and House of Cards now look like the shows to beat, with Breaking Bad making what will be its final appearance at the Golden Globes with the series ending this year. This comes just a year after Homeland achieved the impressive feat of winning Best Drama Series, Best Male Actor and Best Female Actor all in one night, although this does mark the second year in a row that the 2007-2009 winner Mad Men has not appeared in the Best Drama category.

It was a good way to address the problem, especially after the "black comediennes aren't ready" slipup.
They had to do it. There couldn’t have been a better opportunity for SNL to address the diversity issue than a guest appearance by Kerry Washington. SNL fans were eager to see how the show would tackle its obvious lack of black comediennes with a prominent diversity advocate (not to mention an exceptional actress) like Washington on board. They were not disappointed.
Washington had to play both the First Lady, Oprah and a whole host of other celebrities.
So you know how people have been complaining that the lack of a black comedienne severely limits the cast’s topical sketches? The two main examples were Oprah and Michelle Obama – with noone to impersonate them, SNL has missed some golden opportunities over the past six years (the last time Michelle Obama was featured in a skit, she was played by Maya Rudolph in 2007). Not last night though, because Washington was on a mission to perform all the sketches! All the sketches that SNL hasn’t done due to casting limitations. The writers didn’t waste any time and the Scandal actress came out as the first lady at the very beginning of the episode causing President Obama (Jay Pharoah) to remark, "I feel like it's been years since I've seen you!" See what they did there?

Kerry Washington is pregnant! The 'Scandal' star managed to keep it a secret for some time but now the news has been confirmed.
American actress, Kerry Washington, is expecting her first baby with husband, Nnamdi Asomugha, according to Us Weekly.
The news comes four months after Washington and the San Francisco 49ers star secretly married on June 24 in Blaine County, Idaho.
A friend of the 36 year-old told the mag, "She's about four months along," and so far Washington has managed to hide any hint of a baby bump from the public eye, she seems to have a knack for keeping secrets!

Kerry Washington is hosting SNL. Imagine the possibilities!
Kerry Washington has been killing it lately – the newly pregnant star is doing great both in her personal and her professional life, with an upcoming SNL hosting gig to look forward to. In the promos, Washington and Taran Killam riff off each other on topics like Scandal, Eminem’s special performing style (the rapper will be the musical guest during the episode) and of course, that ever touchy subject – Washington’s body.
Washington looked glamorous as ever, promoting her SNL episode.
To be fair, the actress isn’t showing any sort of baby bump and looks killer in a purple ensemble (and matching lipstick.) Killam on the other hand, has opted for the traditional uniform – patterned shirt and neutral cardigan. But enough about the clothes, let’s talk about the controversy.

Friends actress Lisa Kudrow has been picked for a recurring role in ABC's smash-hit drama Scandal and it is being speculated that she will play a politician in the White House.
