Huge "Scandal" spoilers are out and it looks like Olivia Pope's dad could be leaving the show. On March 14, Wet Paint shared the news that Joe Morton, who plays Olivia's dad has been cast in a new show. He obviously won't be staying on the show at least as a regular.
Joe will be on a medical show that is called "Proof" which will be airing on TNT. He has been a very important part of the show though. It would be interesting to see how they decide to get him of "Scandal." Olivia's dad has always liked for her to have lunch with him and wants them to talk about nothing, but of course that very seldom happens for them.
At this time, it is unknown if the character of Roland Pope will be leaving the show or not. If his pilot doesn't take off, he could easily come back. They also might just let him come on the show from time to time and not have his character on the show as often. "Scandal" fans will just have to wait and see what happens.
