Catching Up With George Newbern of Scandal

Thanks to the genius of Shonda Rhimes and an amazing writing team, ABC’s Scandal has some of the most terrifying and beloved characters on television right now. Cyrus Beene, Eli Pope, Huck, even Mellie Grant—they’ve all sent some serious shivers down our spines over the past three seasons. But Charlie (no last name, obviously) is a very specific breed of scary. Everything this guy says is a little bit tongue-in-cheek, and that would be fine if everything he said didn’t somehow reference killing or torturing someone, AKA what he did at work that day. George Newbern has been on a slew of television shows over the years, including Nip/Tuck and Providence, and many will recognize him as the voice of Superman/Clark Kent from Justice League. But his career took him for an exciting, twisted turn when he was cast as B6-13 CIA operative and, now, über-creepy boyfriend to Quinn Perkins on Scandal. Paste caught up with Newbern to talk about his early days in Arkansas and this crazy, wild ride in Shondaland. Continue @ pastemagazine.com

‘Scandal’s’ George Newbern: The Man Behind Our Favorite TV Villain

You know one of the real joys in this season of Scandal? More George Newbern. We’ve enjoyed watching this guy ever since he adorably romanced Connie Britton in the pilot of Cupid, only TV’s most heartwarming show ever made. Which makes it both awesome and mind-bending that he’s now playing the sociopathic assassin Charlie on Scandal. He’s too likeable to be killing people; he voices Superman, for heaven’s sake! And it’s entirely because of that charisma that we’ve come to love Charlie…inasmuch as you can love a murderer. BFTV had the chance to catch up with George last week and try to figure out how he got to the point of playing our favorite B6-13 operative. Continue @ starpulse.com
