Columbus Short

Before he stocked up on suits to play Olivia's right-hand man and lawyer Harrison Wright, Short was a famed choreographer, dancer and actor known for working with queen of hip gyrations Britney Spears. The Kansas City native landed his first film role as a dancer in You Got Served and followed it up with parts in Stomp the Yard and Cadillac Records. Unfortunately, a string of run-ins with the law — including a domestic abuse claim by his ex-wife — lead to Short being fired from Scandal earlier this year.
