Calling all Scandal Junkies!!
Yesterday it was announced that Khandi Alexander will portray Maya Lewis on ABC’s Scandal. When we first heard the news we were all shocked yet excited that another strong African American actress would be joining the cast. However Vixens, you’ve got to admit, you had your hearts set on a few actresses. So, we put together a list of actresses that you probably had in mind for the role. Check them out after the jump!
Everyone’s favorite TV mom, Phylicia has portrayed several motherly roles. Her sophisticated stature and morals from the Cosby Show definitely would’ve fell in line with the “Pope” way of life.
After seeing her portray a housewife with secrets on Desperate Housewives, Alfre surely would be a great counterpart for Papa Pope and his crazy B-36 life!
S. Epatha Merkerson
After seeing her as the Lieutenant on Law & Order, Merkerson means business! She definitely would’ve got along with Papa Pope when it came to discipline!
Vixens, the resemblance is pretty much there and she would have everyone in White House walking the straight and narrow with her no- nonsense attitude! Diahann Carroll would’ve been a perfect match made in heaven with Joe Morton (Papa Pope).
