‘Scandal’ Star Joshua Malina on Show Cast’s Decision to Be There for Fans on Social

David RosenABC’s hit show “Scandal” returned from an over two-month hiatus last night to its fans delight, with Kerry Washington‘s Olivia Pope back on the president’s—and her lover’s—reelection team, who had their hands busy dealing with a gone-rogue Vice President Sally Langston.

As we’ve covered extensively on Lost Remote, the show is one of social media’s most popular, with heavy engagement between actors and fans happening between episodes and in real-time as the show airs.

Lost Remote recently spoke to one of the show’s stars, Joshua Malina, who plays good guy—and sometimes mischievous—U.S. District Attorney David Rosen, about the show’s social media prowess.

LR: Why do you think your show resonates so much particularly on social media. Does the topic of politics and corruption create more of a reaction from TV viewers driving them to comment over other topics like romance, crime, etc.?

Malina: Well, SCANDAL is such an everything plus the kitchen sink kind of show, that it encompasses a breadth of topics – politics, romance, and crime high among them. So, whatever floats your boat, you can discuss it or argue about with your Twitter pals.

LR: It has been a norm for your actors and producers to engage social media fans, livetweeting during the show in some cases. What do you think drives the interaction between the face of the show and the viewers?

Malina: Not “in some cases!” Very early on, we as a cast made the decision to livetweet every episode on both coasts. It was a way of telling our fans that if they would commit to watching live, we’d be there for them – to answer questions, provide behind-the-scenes information, and just generally shoot the breeze with the people who keep us employed. And Scandal fans have really responded. In this age of time-shifting television watching, we are getting terrific numbers for live-viewing, and an important part of that is the Twitter crowd.
