Kerry Washington, Jimmy Kimmel


If you're still recovering from last night's triumphant return of Scandal and dreading the fact that you need to wait six long days for more, look no further for some comedic relief. And yes, it features some of your favorite gladiators.

Kerry Washington stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday to chat about the drama thriller's immense international success.

"Now Scandal is on all over the world now, right?" Jimmy Kimmel asked the 37-year-old actress.

"It's very cool," the mama-to-be said. "Like we were all sitting around on set one day and we realized the South African premiere was happening. Because we were all at work. We were like, 'Oh, let's live tweet with our South African audience.'"

"So in South Africa, it's probably untouched," Kimmel said, teasing the inevitable spoof. "But in other countries there's the, they overdub it?"

"Yes, in South Africa, the whole continent of Africa, we have a different name," Washington revealed. "Cause there is a show out of Nigeria called Scandal, so we're called The Fixer. In Africa. But in other countries, yes, there are other people who have Olivia Pope's voice."

Kimmel then presented the Spanish version of the smash hit series, Escandalo. Kimmel's sidekick Guillermo took on the role of this version's President Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) to Washington's Olivia Pope, while Bellamy Young and Katie Lowes also appeared in the mock telenovela.

¡Es un escándalo!
