Larenz Tate is already starring on one hit TV show, USA Network’s Rush, but fans of the ABC hit series Scandal want him to take over Columbus Short‘s vacated role.
He can do it since many actors on TV have multiple gigs, but Tate didn’t want to keep speculation going about a job he doesn’t have.
Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes shut down rumors that Tate was replacing Short months ago, but fans still think it’s a great idea.
Tate talked about Rush but skillfully dodged questions about Scandal when he talked with Wendy Williams.
“I would love to have two jobs. ’Rush’ is a really great show. It’s a medical drama,” he said.
He added, “some of our storylines are loosely based off of events that go on. The only constant thing in his life has been his best friend…I’m the complete total opposite.
“I have what you could consider the ideal life, but I start going into a bit of his world as the show progresses,” Tate said.
