Portia de Rossi snags 'Scandal' guest role for 'top secret arc'

By Kyle Johnson,

Arrested Development star Portia de Rossi is joining the upcoming fourth season of Scandal for a guest role gig.

The news was first announced by Rossi's wife Ellen DeGeneres on Twitter. She tweeted, "So annoying when people brag on twitter & that's why I'm not tweeting that Portia just signed on to do a top secret arc on 'Scandal'. Oops."

Not much is currently known about the role as E! News reports that the only confirmed news so far is that Rossi is on board for more than one episode.

Anything else, the Scandal team is keeping under wraps for now.

E! notes that anyone they contacted refused to divulge any information about the casting news and supposedly only Rossi and Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes have any substantial knowledge about the mystery guest role.

The hit ABC drama is set to return on Sept. 25. Rhimes' new series How to Get Away With Murder will also debut that night.
