Now we know what happens to Harrison in the season cliff hanger of Scandal. Columbus Short confirms he will not be returning to the blockbuster series. In a statement to the media Columbus explains,
“At this time I must confirm my exit from a show I’ve called home for 3 years, with what is the most talented ensemble on television today. I would like to first thank Shonda Rhimes for the opportunity to work with such an amazing cast. Thank you GLADIATORS, who have supported me throughout my entire career and of course to ABC and Shondaland for allowing me to play such a pivotal role in the Scandal series. I have enjoyed every single minute of it. Everything must come to an end and unfortunately the time has come for Harrison Wright to exit the canvas. I wish nothing but the best for Shonda, Kerry and the rest of the cast, who have become like a second family to me in such a short amount of time. For this, I will forever be grateful.”
Over the past few weeks Columbus Short has been involved in a series of violent and bizarre incidents including sucker punching a bar patron, threatening to kill his wife and calling Tom Joyner a nigga live on the radio for asking him about his recent legal issues.
