She is absolutely going to slay this role!
Kerry Washington has been portraying Olivia Pope on Scandal for a little over three years now, and it looks like her commitment to the ABC drama is about to really benefit her upcoming role.
That's because Kerry's next high profile project is the HBO movie Confirmation, about the 1991 court case of Anita Hill accusing her boss, Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, of sexual harassment.
The premium cable network revealed the first look of Kerry in her historical drama on Tuesday, and Kerry even thanked the company for making the movie, saying:
Thank you for the profound opportunity of getting to inhabit Anita Hill and help tell this story!
K-Dub (aka super excited Exec Producer)
K-Dub — HA! We love it!!!

Kerry will be joined by Jennifer Hudson, Eric Stonestreet, Greg Kinnear, Jeffery Wright, and Alison Wright for the drama, and we think it could see the film getting some love at this year's Emmys.
There's no news yet on when Confirmation is set to air — but one thing's for sure… it's going to be scandalous!
