Are you ready to see Jennifer Hudson as a “fixer”? Well, she is a little bit of a different sort of fixer in a new Funny or Die video that serves as a spoof of “Scandal.”
In it, you have an opportunity to see former “American Idol” and “Smash” star Jennifer Hudson wander around Washington DC in an effort to try and solve some problems. The twist here? The issues that we are dealing with here are related more to health care than anything that has to do with people getting killed or cheating rumors. Given that this is ultimately a skit from Funny or Die designed more to promote health-care options, it can be considered lucky that there is any humor in it at all.
There is a decent amount of attention put in here to at least spoofing the show in question. There are some great lines in here that parallel the series, and even more importantly, Hudson wears the same sort of outfit that Olivia has on in the picture here and in a number of other scenes from the show. These are the sort of outfits that make you wonder whether or not Olivia’s dry cleaner hates her for bringing in so many difficult objects to clean.
As for some actual scoop about “Scandal” season 3, take a look here to see some of what is coming up for Olivia and company. The show returns to ABC on Thursday night at 10:00 p.m. Eastern time; before that airs, be sure to keep coming back to the site for some more news. As for what sort of problems Olivia will be able to take down this year, it is going to be rather difficult when she has the press breathing down her neck.
