Shonda Rhimes‘ fierce Gladiators assembled for the first time since the ABC hit series hung up its white hat in 2018.
Kerry Washington, Tony Goldwyn, Bellamy Young, Jeff Perry, Kate Burton, Dan Bucatinsky, Norm Lewis, Katie Lowes, Guillermo Diaz, Cornelius Smith, George Newbern and Joe Morton all came together as part of the Stars in the House series to benefit The Actors Fund. It was handled and the reunion provided Rudetsky with his biggest surprise from hosting almost 200 episodes.
“Kerry Washington ended the season by meeting her father. And she just said, ‘Dad ,’and did it,” he told E! News. “They basically hadn’t written the script for season three. So she said she had to record, like, six different line readings where they should be happy to see him, devastated to see him, depressed to see him, angry…it’s so fun that like it’s an old acting exercise.”
