The “Arrested Development” actress will appear on the upcoming fourth season
In true “Scandal” fashion, the show is keeping the details of Rossi's role under wraps.
The news of Rossi's casting was actually broken by her wife, talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres, on Twitter.
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.

Rossi has held several roles on memorable shows like the Fox/Netflix comedy “Arrested Development,” Fox's legal dramedy “Ally McBeal,” ABC's “Better Off Ted” and FX's “Nip/Tuck.”
